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.’
Every world leader or dignitary that arrives to @COP26 by private jet is an eco-hypocrite. Fact.

Prince Charles will take a private jet to Rome to take part in the G20 conference before returning via private jet to the #COP26 summit in Glasgow to express his concern over climate change. Seriously. pic.twitter.com/Y7vS5lo0WZ

By "we" he means "you".
He just took a private jet to attend G20 in Rome, before flying back with private jet to attend #COP26
