Time to get out your AGW hypocrisy meters. AGW, of course, stands for anthropogenic (human-caused) global warming.
And the hypocrisy meters are about to ring off the charts, as the AGW alarmists descend in droves on Paris for COP 21 (21st Conference Of Parties), the United Nations’ much-ballyhooed climate summit, set to take place November 30-December 11.
It happens every time: the millionaires, billionaires, and “public servants” — Prince Charles, Al Gore, Ted Turner, Richard Branson, Hollywood celebs, presidents, prime ministers, etc. — swoosh into the confab in their tax-payer provided jets, or their own private Learjets and Gulfstreams, to preach to the rest of us on why we must reduce our “carbon footprints” and submit to a UN-mandated “carbon budget.”
While at the global gathering, these elites will occupy the luxury suites of the most expensive hotels, dine at the swankest 5-star eateries, and entertain themselves at the trendiest watering holes. Appropriately, the UN summit will be held at the Paris-Le Bourget Airport and conference site , which boasts the largest number of private jet terminals of any airport in the world.
The UN’s COP21 webpage says: “In order to give the best possible welcome to the 40,000 people expected, France has chosen the Paris-Le Bourget site for its hosting capacity (18 hectares) and its accessibility.”
As Canadian climate realist Donna Laframboise explains in her blog, Paris-Le Bourget is “not just any airport.”
