Rich, famous, and two faced!

Hi Brit,

I’m sure you’ve heard of the Davos conference, where the rich, the famous, and the rich and famous get together with top level politicos and decide the fate of us common people.  Well, the hot topic this year is Global Warming, what to do about it, and how to fleece the rest of us in the process.  As this article, High-altitude hedonism in Davos, points out, not only is it not all work, but the meeting provides an excellent example of just how two faced these Important people are:

“For all the grave talk about the dangers of climate change at the four-day meeting of corporate and political leaders, petrol-guzzling limousines and SUVs remained the transport mode of choice for the vast majority of participants.”

And, if that doesn’t make you want to see the High and Mighty stoned in the street:

“For the really “serious money,” the road was left behind altogether in favour of a helicopter entry and departure to the small ski resort high in the Swiss Alps. ”

There needs to be some climate change alright, but it doesn’t have anything to do with Global Warming, but rather about the Global Shafting we’re getting from the people in charge.

the Grit
