Traveling in Private Jets to Discuss Climate Change! Reactions are growing like an avalanche.
Climate change was discussed, among many other issues, at the World Economic Forum held in Davos. However, the fact that the world's leading names went to the meeting with their private jets caused reactions.
The World Economic Forum (WEF) has brought together government and business leaders in Davos, Switzerland, every year since 1971. The World Economic Forum, where the world's most powerful and wealthy names as well as leaders meet, hosts more than 2,700 guests from all over the world. This year, 130 countries, including 50 governments and heads of state, are on the basis of "Cooperation in a Fragmented World". Greenpeace organization, which uses carbon-emitting private jets on its way to Davos, carries out its fight against climate change with honesty and “hypocrisy”.
Greenpeace Spokesperson Klara Maria Schenk said this evening: "Europe is experiencing its hottest January ever. People all over the world are struggling with extreme weather events. But the richest and most powerful crews arrived on private jets to Davos, where they would meet in the wake of climate change and inequality."
Causes Carbon Release Up To 50,000 Vehicles
An extreme study by Greenpeace revealed that the private jets preferred by the names attending the summit at the end of last year cause serious environmental pollution. According to the research, the carbon emissions caused by 1.40 private jets that landed at the airport for Davos in the previous year are equivalent to the emissions caused by an average of 350 thousand vehicles. In addition, the research revealed that 53 percent of trips made by private jets can be made by train, and 38 percent are extremely short-haul flights.
Airport Parkıng Problem
Guests arriving in Switzerland to attend the World Economic Forum had difficulty finding parking for their jets. Several Private Jets have been spotted parked side by side at the Swiss Air Force Base in Duebendorf. Some of the names participating in the forum via Zurich left their jets at Zurich Airport. There is a reconstruction at Zurich Airport due to private jets.
