• Jon Stewart Destroys Davos Hypocrites: You Flew 1,700 Private Jets To Combat Climate Change?

    Earlier this week, the skies were filled with 1,700 private jets headed to Davos, Switzerland, and filled with wealthy elites set to discuss global warming, income inequality, and other issues at this year’s annual World Economic Forum.

    That those carbon-pumping planes were used so people could come together and talk about how best to reduce carbon emissions, was an irony too rich for even Jon Stewart to pass up.

    “I wish there was one perfect fact to explain the kind of event the World Economic Forum really is,” he quipped.

    And what was one of the major topics being discussed at this year’s conference, Stewart asked? “Oh yes. Global inequality,” he said, answering his own question. “It’s actually the in-flight magazine of the 1,700-strong Davos jet fleet.”

    “That’s why the 2015 forum is brought to you by ‘SkyBidet,’ ” Stewart added, highlighting that the annual World Economic Forum is nothing more than an excuse for monied global elites to come together and pretend to care about the issues facing poor people.

    Davos is also were Al Gore announced his partnership with Pharrell Williams to promote “climate change” awareness through a series of concerts called “Live Earth.”

    As Daily Surge reported, Pharrell, who loves to fly around the planet on private jets himself, said he wants “to have a billion voices with one message–to demand climate action now.”

    What a hypocrite.
