Epic hypocrisy: 1700 private jets fly to Davos to discuss perils of ‘climate change’

“I’ll believe it’s a crisis when the people who tell me it’s a crisis start acting like it’s a crisis.”

Glenn Reynolds of Instapundit has the best response: “I’ll believe it’s a crisis when the people who tell me it’s a crisis start acting like it’s a crisis.”

This epic event surpasses even the moment 11 years ago when Sean Hannity interviewed Robert F. Kennedy live on air, and after hearing how we all must cut back on our carbon emissions, asked the crusading flyboy where he was going next, and if he were taking a private jet. The stammering response and justification of how important it was that he be exempted from the rules he would have others follow will always be with me.
