400 private jets travelling to Climate Summit COP26 will create 13,000 tons of carbon dioxide – Sunday Mail

According to a report in the UK’s Sunday Mail, there are 400 private jets travelling to Glasgow.

The jets are transporting high-ranking political and business figures to the COP26 Climate Summit, organised by Boris Johnson.

The jets will generate 13,000 tons of carbon dioxide, about the same amount as 1,300 people will make in an entire year.

Speaking to the newspaper, environmentalist Matt Finch said, ‘Private jets are very prestigious, but it is difficult to avoid the hypocrisy of using one while claiming to be fighting climate change.’
