1,700 Private Jets Will Fly to Davos to Discuss Global Warming

Quote:
Donít worry. Iím sure these will be non-polluting private jets powered by carbon offsets and unicorn magic. They will not in any way add to the heat death of the earth. Unlike you, toting your groceries home in a plastic bag in the back on an SUV.

You should be ashamed of yourself. Why canít you fly around in a private plane like these people who really care about the environment?
Quote:
A squadron of 1,700 private jets are rumbling into Davos, Switzerland, this week to discuss global warming and other issues as the annual World Economic Forum gets underway.

The influx of private jets is so great, the Swiss Armed Forces has been forced to open up a military air base for the first time ever to absorb all the super rich flying their private jets into the event, reports Newsweek.
Quote:
But itís for a good cause.
Quote:
If only everyone could be as enormously conscientious as these people flying private jets to warn us that itís time to make home heating more expensive, outlaw plastic bags and price food staples further out of reach.

Correction to title:

"1,700 Private Jets Will Fly to Davos to Discuss Global Warming's Potential Impact on the Finances of the Ultra Rich"

Davos is pretty much the opposite of a treehugger meet-up. It's primarily for business interests.

So how do the Quotes associate to the Code?

I'll bet they get together and laugh about how the Electric Universe theory falsifies anthropogenic global warming, black holes, and dark energy and matter. And how we just let them.

I keep hearing radio ads "Tired of making someone else rich?" Let's get him rich before I decide whether or not I am tired of it!
