A cool blend of contemporary & retro culture

Over 100 celebrities make their way to ‘climate change camp’… guzzling CO2-emitting fuel from their private jets to get there

One hundred and fourteen celebrities made their way to an event dubbed ‘Google Camp’, held at an elite resort in Sicily, Italy. The camp was meant for celebs to discuss and help address climate change, however the majority of them arrived in private jets and via yacht.

“Pretty disgusted at the hypocrisy of , because of the 114 private jets that have flown in, when they’re supposed to be talking about global warming.”

Some of the celebrities in attendance included Prince Harry, Barack Obama, Bradley Cooper, Leonardo DiCaprio, Orlando Bloom, Priyanka Chopra, and Katy Perry (who sped in on producer David Geffen’s yacht).

Google and said celebs are now being slammed for the huge carbon footprint left in the event’s wake, with The Post having calculated around 100,000 kilograms of CO2 would have been pumped into the air to get the stars there in more than 100 planes and boats.

Punters on social media were quick to criticise Google and the gaggle of celebs, with one writer, Felix, saying: “Pretty disgusted at the hypocrisy of , because of the 114 private jets that have flown in, when they’re supposed to be talking about global warming.”

Prince Harry gave a speech about climate change, barefoot, presumably to send a message about ‘treading lightly’ on the earth but also very aware of the irony (and, yes Felix, the hypocrisy) of the entire shebang.
