to write daily mail. Hundreds of Bezos’ private jets worth more than 56 million euros, carrying Prince Albert of Monaco, several royals and dozens of ‘green’ CEOs, have landed in recent days for the COP26 climate summit in Glasgow.
In fact, air traffic was so crowded last Sunday that some planes had to fly to nearby Prestwick to ground the planes. Some also landed in Edinburgh, probably before traveling overland.
I mentioned on Sunday daily mail That at least 52 private planes landed in Glasgow, and the total number of flights that landed for the conference was estimated at 400. Projections indicate that the fleet of private jets arriving in Glasgow for the climate summit will emit a total of 13,000 tons of carbon dioxide – the equivalent of the amount that more than 1,300 Dutch people consume in a year.
G20 in Rome
Several private jet passengers, including Prince Charles, South Korean President Moon Jae-in and Prime Minister Boris Johnson, came from the G20 meeting in Rome. Prince Albert of Monaco also chose to come on a private jet.
Joe Biden arrived in Edinburgh on Monday, while German Angela Merkel and French President Emmanuel Macron arrived in Glasgow. President Biden alone will generate an estimated one million pounds of carbon to reach the top, thanks to a fleet of four planes, a Marine One helicopter, a massive motorcade including The Beast, and several SUVs.
Hundreds of other Climatic Summit visitors were a little less fortunate when a major storm shut down the train line last Sunday. So many travelers failed to reach the top of the climate and some had to sleep temporarily on the floor of Euston Station in London.
The Glasgow Climate Change Conference will take place from 31 October to 12 November.
