Skip to comments.How to fly to a climate change summit? In a private, carbon-spewing jet

One of the hottest spots during the just-concluded Global Climate Action Summit was the private runway at San Francisco International Airport, where SFO spokesman Doug Yakel reports corporate jet traffic was up 30 percent over normal.
Airport sources told us that the carbon-spewing corporate jets nearly filled the landing areas parking slots and that many had flown in for the conference.
The three-day climate confab drew more than 4,000 elected officials, business executives and environmentalists from around the globe and was aimed at addressing how to lower the carbon emissions responsible for global warming.
The summit was organized by Gov. Jerry Brown, who has been known to fly private.
In 2015, Brown flew with real estate mega-millionaire and major Democratic Party donor George Marcus via private jet to a climate change conference at the Vatican. The next year, the go-green governor jetted off with Marcus for a two-week trip that included stops in Italy, Bulgaria, Romania and Ukraine. ***

They don’t want to take their own medicine.
As you said, they are a bunch of hypocrites.
It costs money to operate a private jet, there has to be a pay-off at the end, or they wouldn’t bother attending or pontificating to the rest of us.
LOL! No kidding. They talk a good
Gam but they do not put their money where their mouth is.
Stupid long nails! Makes me make all sorts of typos o n
This tablet ! So rry!
13 Sept: Twitchy: Harrison Ford begs Americans to stop electing leaders who dont believe in science
Actor Harrison Ford spoke at the Global Climate Action Summit in San Francisco today, and reporter Sam Brock tells us that Ford begged the audience to stop electing people who dont believe in science. Hmm wonder if he was thinking of anyone in particular?...
We really wish theyd featured Ted Danson the guy who said back in 1988 that the oceans would be dead within 10 years instead. He knows science. But Harrison Ford is a fine second choice...
Harrison Ford flew in on his private jet to deliver a message about climate change.
Harrison Ford literally flies planes around burning fossil fuel for fun. He’s a pilot!
And then.. Harrison Ford goosed the throttle, lifted off, burned a 100 lbs of ATF, flipped the finger and yelled, “Do as I say, not as I do!”
Harrison Ford has multiple huge houses and private planes that he flies all the time. When I see him move into a 1 bedroom apt and riding a bike Ill listen to him.
After all, aren't they the same ones who are better & more evolved to rule over those masses of peons & little people?
I don’t care what they own or how much. Just spare me the hypocrisy of telling us what to do while you excuse yourself from those same rules.
They talk a good game because they see themselves as a ruling elite, put there to guide us the peasants on how we should live. The rules are for us not them. They are always so surprised when they get Ceaucescued
Would-be commissars calling the shots for the lowly proles.
It’s never about carbon, it only about carbon credits.
I think it is awesome that they printed this and pointed it out.
The very hallmark of socialism/communism.
But that's not as much fun as being seen in hot-spots in SF.
The Wright brothers caused global warming.
Now different than Colincancer Krapernick crying oppression all the way to the bank while rolling in a $90+k Jaguar he paid cash for. Must be nice...
