San Francisco International Airports corporate jet traffic rose roughly 30 percent during an international climate change conference in California, the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
California Democratic Gov. Jerry Brown hosted the Global Climate Action Summit in San Francisco from Wednesday to Friday. Brown traveled to the conference by car with his security detail, but the governor is known for his lavish travel on other occasions, such as a 2016 trip to Italy, Bulgaria, Romania and Ukraine with real-estate tycoon and Democrat Party donor George Marcus.

More than 4,000 elected officials, executives and environmentalists converged in San Francisco for the climate conference where participants discussed the threat of climate change and looked for solutions.
Corporate jet traffic increased 30 percent over normal at San Franciscos airport during the three-day conference, with much of the congestion due to attendees, airport spokesman Doug Yakel told The San Francisco Chronicle.

Demonrats and climate frauds do love the finer things in life. For themselves, not the Normals.

You don't expect them to fly commercial, do you?
So they went full carbon spew on this.
The first thing we should do to combat Gore-Bull Warming is to outlaw private jets.
Ground them and see how long before the problem goes away.
Which state do they intend to burn down this time?
Contributing to more pollution. Some are more equal than others.
#4 shows at the top the daily consumption of gasoline followed by diesel and fuel oil. Below that is jet fuel. 2nd graders can see that jet fuel is not the main problem.
But if you did want to reduce consumption of jet fuel you wouldn't focus on private. Most of the jet fuel is used by the mass market, especially the short hop flights
My point wasn’t about the use of jet fuel.
My point was that the people pushing this make-believe problem might stop if it affected them directly.
The greenhouse gas theory is all hot air.
The temperature of earth is controlled by the Sun.
they will stop you from flying and make you ride the train.
Obama did something like it, pushed down the noise level max for jet engines. The turbine tips break the sound barrier (even on subsonic planes). Of course, this would adversely impact US manufacturers, which is why he did it.
