COP26 Summit: Leaders Give Promises for Climate Change While Travelling with Private Jets Which Emits Tones of CO2 Per Hour

More than 118 private jets arrived in the Scottish city this week for the two weeks summit which emitted nearly 1,400 tons of CO2, well that’s huge. Ever since the COP26 Summit began in Glasgow there have been several reports making rounds online claiming that around 400 private jets carrying heads of state, billionaires, business leaders, and celebrities have converged in the Scottish city for the event.

Talking about the case UK’s Transport and Environment campaign group member, Matt Finch said, “It can’t be stressed enough how bad private jets are for the environment, it is the worst way to travel by miles, Private jets are very prestigious but it is difficult to avoid the hypocrisy of using one while claiming to be fighting climate change.”

While Australia’s former foreign minister Alexander Downer said, “”There are 400 private jets ferrying delegations to the COP26 conference. @POTUS [US President Joe Biden] brought five. It is estimated they will emit in 24 hours as much CO2 as Scotland emits in a year!”

If all 118 private jets at COP26 flew an average of three hours to and from the event that would put the combined carbon emitted by the 118 private jets at over 1,400 tons, it said further.
