A-listers flock to Google summit in private jets, mega yachts to talk climate change

By Emily Smith and Ebony Bowden
July 30, 2019 

The world’s rich and famous have flocked to a posh Italian resort to talk about saving Mother Earth — but they sure are punishing her in the process.

The billionaire creators of Google have invited a who’s who of A-list names— including former President Barack ObamaPrince HarryLeonardo DiCaprio and Katy Perry — to the Sicilian seaside for a mega-party they’ve dubbed Google Camp.

The three-day event will focus on fighting climate change — though it’s unknown how much time the attendees will spend discussing their own effect on the environment, such as the scores of private jets they arrived in and the mega yachts many have been staying on.

“Everything is about global warming, that is the major topic this year,” a source told The Post.

Their three-day summer camp will cost the tech giant some $20 million, sources said.

I’d love to be a witness to what happens at that climate “conference”. But I somehow doubt the topic of conversation will be their personal carbon footprints, unless they decide to start comparing the size of their private jets.

It’s disappointing to see how political bias has enabled otherwise smart people at Google to be so thoroughly fooled by the climate science deception perpetuated by the IPCC in its pursuit of the policy goals of the UNFCCC which are openly hostile to the economic system that enabled a company like Google to exist in the first place.

But where does Google money come from? I do not pay Google directly every time I use an internet search. So does it come from: – advertising? So where does advertising money come from? Surely from companies who have products that they want us to buy? And where does the money to buy the products come from? Surely from a population in a prosperous economy with significant disposable income.
So what do Google want ? They align themselves with those who wish to deindustrialise the developed world and eliminate a relatively prosperous middle class in pursuit of a climate change ideology which has no credibility given that China , India, Indonesia , etc continue to develop as they are doing so at present.
Have Google thought this through adequately , or indeed at all?

Controlling the search results is power which they sell.

Their power also comes from the info that can be found by analyzing your searches and activity which they then sell for targeted specialized ads which are distributed using their browser and searches and their maps.

Google also has the browser, email, and cloud services which are commercially supportive.

The monarchy in Britain and the “upper” classes never liked industrialisation because the people who became rich were common tradesmen and not the nobility and “upper” classes.

In large part, the culture of being anti-“new money”-industrialists was what led academia to be against industry and then against its proxy “CO2”.

The irony is that they look down on Google as much as they look down on industry – but Google are too stupid to see it yet.

It is about power and control. They fear revolution by the masses. A revolt of the “have nots” over the “Haves.”

Their plan is to get the majority to voluntarily agree at the ballot box to converted this Representative Republic into some version of Huxley’s Brave New World. A planned controlled population, controlled by the elites of course. This climate hoax is just one strategy of many.

Success is dependent upon the brainwashing of the masses beginning with control of the primary means of communication, Media at all levels, getting education at all levels controlled by the government and directed at the federal level. Federalizing the Student loan business (Barack’s Baby) in order to get more people into college for advanced brainwashing.

So now we have a media and educational industrial complex Follow Federal funds to understand the totality of their strategies. We know that it is a lot easier to dupe someone who has been dumbed down and brainwashed for 17 years yet thinks they are smart because they hold a useless degree in a social science with no where to work but for the Government. So government expands to meet the supply and the next thing you know you have politicians falling all over themselves to be the first “Progressive” to forgive all student loan debt.

I could write a dissertation Rod but just understand that they fear the poor rising up against them and they are anxious to mitigate that fear. Their Globalist Utopia is about the Wealthy controlling the population by first transferring middle class disposable income to the poor to satiate the more problematic until they have everybody dependent on them. In the end they control the resources including population growth.

If they could just bomb those problematic Red States they could complete their Vision within a generation.

I know that they are fooled because I spent years on the inside. They try not to be evil and they’re not trying to de-industrialize the world, but far left politics that wraps evil intentions with false benevolence gets in the way. The problem is that rational discourse related to politically divisive issues, like climate science, is lacking internally. The reasons are that most of Google’s engineering and corporate operations are in places where far left politics is the norm and many of their employees are right out of elite universities where they’ve been indoctrinated to far left ideologies.

Blind conformance to any political ideology can make even the smartest people look really dumb, especially since those on the left more readily accept the opinions of others they perceive as being smart about what they don’t know themselves. Projectionism like this is an intellectual shortcoming far more common among those on the left than it is among those on the right and the current state of political discourse demonstrates this effect with unwavering certainty.

Surely, since the public buys their music, movies, and tech components … the public will “buy” their insistence that a one-world centralized government is the only way to save the planet.

Camp Google has one ulterior purpose in the minds of Sergey Brin and Larry Page…

Prevent a possible US government’s anti-trust breakup of Alphabet (Google’s parent company) by currying influence within Democratic and Liberal circles.

Left and right nuts, Elizabeth Warren and Donald Trump both attack Google as being too big, too much influence. Brin and Page both know that if they’ve got Obama and a host of “A-list” Leftists in their corner, nothing will happen in DC, London, or Brussels.

Climate change has nothing to do with climate… once again… it’s just a vehicle for Billionaire’s to exert influence, gain power, and get richer.

Just last week, Project Veritas exposed a senior Google executive in a video sting of her admitting what the upper echelons of Google’s executives have been told to say:

PV got Google’s VP of Responsible Innovation Jenn Gennai on video with her saying the following:
“We all got screwed over in 2016, again it wasn’t just us, it was, the people got screwed over, the news media got screwed over, like, everybody got screwed over so we’re rapidly been like, happened there and how do we prevent it from happening again.”

“We’re also training our algorithms, like, if 2016 happened again, would we have, would the outcome be different?”

Gennai is the head of “Responsible Innovation” for Google, and works on artificial intelligence (A.I.) projects. In the video, Gennai says “break[ing] up Google” would be a bad thing for political reasons:

“Elizabeth Warren is saying we should break up Google. And like, I love her but she’s very misguided, like that will not make it better it will make it worse, because all these smaller companies who don’t have the same resources that we do will be charged with preventing the next Trump situation, it’s like a small company cannot do that.”

This is the subtle message from Brin and Page that will be brought home at Camp Google to these A-Lister attendees.
– Message #1: we’re fully on-board with the Left’s agenda, including the Climate Scam.
– Message #2: we’re willing to throw quite a bit of money at you guys for this.
– Message #3: A smaller set of companies, separately, couldn’t do the coordinated, deep money, and AI search engine skews like Google can for promoting your agenda.
– Message #4: Don’t let Pocahontas or Trump break us up.

Of course it was good for the consumer, it set off competition and a freer-market. (There was still regulation).
But that’s not the point.

From Brin and Page’s perspective, Alphabet is their baby and they don’t want anyone taking that away from them, forcing them to break-up and sell Alphabet into pieces and parts.

So $20million to schmooze politically connected Liberals is just small change as part of an insurance policy premium — a cost of doing business from their perspective. That amount money from Alphabet as part of their corporate promotion budget is like 20 bucks to me and you.

It’s interesting to note the relative financial might of “Big Oil” compared to “Big Tech.” As of today, the market cap for the following companies is:

Shell Oil: $252.9 B USD
Exxon Mobil: $314.62 B USD
Chevron: $123.11 B USD
Conoco Phillips: $59.08 B USD
Occidental: $51.36 B USD
Total Big Oil: $801.07 B USD

Google: $843.71 B USD
Apple: $965.37 B USD (down from over $1 trillion)
Microsoft: $1,041,51 B USD

Each of three Big Tech companies is worth more than all of the major US oil companies combined. Yet without the products the oil companies provide, the Big Tech companies would cease to exist – as would the rest of the US economy, and the value of all of the money possessed by the wealthy. The rich warmmongers may have a lot of money to throw around now, but if they get their way, they have a very, very long way to fall – and they will fall first.

It is really quite strange.

This is a better quote, same subject.

The google engineers discovered that electricity will become horrifyingly expense when storage is required and that there is almost no savings in CO2 emissions at that point to use green energy.

Making energy horrifyingly expensive will have bad consequences such as politicians losing elections, in addition to economic collapse and riots in the streets.


In reality, well before any such stage was reached, energy would become horrifyingly expensive – which means that everything would become horrifyingly expensive … ….everyone would become miserably poor and economic growth …

Even if one were to electrify all of transport, industry, heating and so on, so much renewable generation and balancing/storage equipment would be needed to power it that astronomical new requirements for steel, concrete, copper, glass, carbon fibre, neodymium, shipping and haulage etc etc would appear. All these things are made using mammoth amounts of energy: far from achieving massive energy savings, which most plans for a renewables future rely on implicitly, we would wind up needing far more energy, which would mean even more vast renewables farms – and even more materials and energy to make and maintain them and so on. The scale of the building would be like nothing ever attempted by the human race.

Given that the left hates rich people and worries constantly about global warming, isn’t it about time we had a huge tax on private jets and yachts? How about a takeoff fee for private jets of a few thousand dollars? Triple if you are going to a global warming conference.

Thank you Robert – an interesting article. If only part of it is true, humanity has a very big problem.

I have stated in my recent articles that the leadership of the radical greens , who have everything completely wrong about CO2, global warming, climate change and green energy cannot all be that stupid – they have a covert agenda.

The primary stated objective of the Club of Rome is neo-Malthusian – the forced reduction of human population in a totalitarian (allegedly Socialist) society – and they are already doing an effective job, as described below.

Their supporters, the useful-idiot “Progressives” (aka neo-Marxists), forget our history: Communist Mao killed about 80 million of his own people, the mainland Chinese. Communist Stalin killed about 50 million Russians, Ukrainians, and others – also his own people. National Socialist Hitler killed another 50 million people on all sides in WW2

What the neo-Marxists do not seem to understand is this:
And no, this time it will NOT be different.

1. Introduction.

“In the 20th Century, socialists Stalin, Hitler and Mao caused the deaths of over 200 million people, mostly their own citizens. Lesser killers like Pol Pot and the many tin-pot dictators of South America and Africa killed and destroyed the lives of many more.

Modern Green Death probably started with the 1972-2002 effective ban of DDT, which caused global deaths from malaria to increase from about 1 million to almost two million per year. Most of these deaths were children under five in sub-Saharan Africa – just babies for Christ’s sake!”
– February 1, 2019

“…radical greens (really radical leftists) are the great killers of our time. Now the greens are blinding and killing babies by opposing golden rice…” – March 10, 2019

“The Green movement is really a smokescreen for the old Marxists – and they are the great killers of our age.” – March 11, 2019

8. Why are the radical greens so anti-environmental?


To better understand radical green objectives, see http://www.green-agenda.com/, excerpted below:

“The common enemy of humanity is man. In searching for a new enemy to unite us, we came up with the idea that pollution, the threat of global warming, water shortages, famine and the like would fit the bill. All these dangers are caused by human intervention, and it is only through changed attitudes and behavior that they can be overcome. The real enemy then, is humanity itself.”
– Club of Rome, premier environmental think-tank, consultants to the United Nations

“The goal now is a socialist, redistributionist society, which is nature’s proper steward and society’s only hope.”
– David Brower, first Executive Director of the Sierra Club, founder of Friends of the Earth

9. Conclusion

The evidence strongly supports my hypothesis that “Radical Greens are the Great Killers of Our Age”.

The number of deaths and shattered lives caused by radical-green activism since ~1970 rivals the death tolls of the great killers of the 20th Century – Stalin, Hitler and Mao – they advocate similar extreme-left totalitarian policies and are indifferent to the resulting environmental damage and human suffering.

By Allan M.R. MacRae, B.A.Sc., M.Eng., July 4, 2019

1. Introduction.

Ever wonder why extremists attack honest scientists who oppose global warming and climate change hysteria? Ever wonder why climate extremists refuse to debate the science?


9. Conclusion

Radical green extremists have cost society trillions of dollars and many millions of lives. Banning DDT and radical green opposition to golden rice blinded and killed tens of millions of children.

Green energy and CO2 abatement schemes, driven by false fears of catastrophic global warming, have severely damaged the environment and have squandered trillions of dollars of scarce global resources that should have been allocated to serve the real, immediate needs of humanity. Properly allocated, these wasted funds might have ended malaria and world hunger.

The number of shattered lives caused by radical-green activism rivals the death tolls of the great killers of the 20th Century – Stalin, Hitler and Mao – radical greens advocate similar extreme-left totalitarian policies and are indifferent to their resulting environmental damage and human suffering… … and if unchecked, radical environmentalism will cost us our freedom.

Although it sounds “Ka-Tching”, the inside story of biz jet charter at similar high profile events is actually a nightmare for the crew.

Bottom line, despite private audits, screenings, interviews with like a crowd of very concerned managers of this and that, security advisers, one can get fired for a firm wheel planting crosswind landing or not having enough of the right liquor on board.

Task-teams are pre-deployed on possible alternates, weather diversion seems like the end of the world.

And no one knows for sure why those big guys in black suits look so weird.

Okay! All these overpaid, useless twigs gather together in one spot, rub shoulders, eat expensive food that my cats wouldn’t touch (they have better taste), make/hear speeches, rub shoulders some more, slap each other on the back, drink a lot of booze, and natter on about ‘climate this and that’, and then they leave. They go back where they came from, feeling “good” about themselves (whatever that is) and nothing happens.

And the rest of us get on with our lives, aware that this pack of idjits really have nothing going for them. IF they ever had ANYTHING at all going for them that was worthwhile, it vanished like the morning fog long ago.

Think of it as a modern mafia get-together.

How to establish further racket, corruption, extorsions and easy money while looking respectable and convincing to their victims.

To them, you and me are just “profit sources”.

Not surprisingly their strategy works great in a society obsessed by big screen TV’s and showing-off on social media.

Exactly what to expect from consumers willing to pay 2’000 bucks for the latest top-notch model shiny portable FaceBook / Twitter / whatever brain washing machine.

Yes, how dare people spend money to improve and enjoy their lives. I’m sure you have never bought anything in your life and live completely ascetic. You sound like a green activist right there. And isn’t this website also part of the “social media brain washing machine?” And i’m pretty sure I didn’t pay 2000 bucks for Facebook, though I have to check this. Maybe I do owe them money for posting those cat videos.

Good points, and I did not replace my TV when it died. I have to find someone to drag its carcass out to a recycling center.

And when my old computer died, I bought a refurbed computer, got another one, a laptop, as a pity gift and haven’t looked back. Don’t do social media/FB/etc., don’t have a tablet, don’t want that junk.

Strange how much better your life is when you don’t waste it on that nonsense.

New Miami Herald reporting identified at least 80 women who allege Jeffrey Epstein sexually assaulted them as minors. Investigative reporter Julie Brown joins Morning Joe to discuss.




August 10, 2019 8:10 am



Quelle surprise! And how did this happen, when he was under a suicide watch after an earlier incident?

One fact is certain – Epstein will not be able to testify against all the other pedos-in-high-places who joined him at Pedo Island and his other estates. How very convenient for them.

Don’t believe the suicide story – vain narcissists like Epstein don’t usually commit suicide – he was silenced.

The Latest on the death of Jeffrey Epstein (all times local): 1 p.m.

A law enforcement source tells The New York Times financier Jeffrey Epstein was alone in his jail cell the night of his apparent suicide. The Times spoke to the official on the condition of anonymity. The Associated Press has not independently confirmed the information.

An official with knowledge of the investigation told the Times that Epstein’s cellmate was transferred. The official says the Justice Department was told Epstein would have a cellmate and be monitored by a guard every 30 minutes.

He was found unresponsive in his jail cell Saturday and the Bureau of Prisons says he was later pronounced dead of an apparent suicide.


12:45 p.m.

A law enforcement official tells The New York Times that Jeffrey Epstein should have been checked on by guards in his cell every 30 minutes, but that didn’t happen the night before he was found hanged in a federal jail cell.

The Times spoke to the official on the condition of anonymity. The Associated Press has not independently confirmed the information.

Epstein was discovered unresponsive in his cell Saturday at a high-security jail in Manhattan. The Bureau of Prisons says he was later pronounced dead from an apparent suicide.

He was facing sex trafficking charges and had recently been taken off suicide watch, a person familiar with the matter who wasn’t authorized to discuss it publicly told The Associated Press. He was found in his cell with bruising on his neck two weeks ago.

There were so many VIPs associated with Epstein, from Prince Andrew to Bill Clinton to Donald Trump, the net has conspiracy theories blaming anyone they dislike.

I think Trump took zero flights.

My personal prejudices would tend to place Bill Clinton at the head of any questionable actions, but most of that is dislike of the Clintons in general.

If they were really concerned about the amount of CO2 that is being added to the atmosphere, they would hold their conference on the Internet instead of Italy. The money that they are spending on fossil fuels is helping to keep the fossil fuel companies stay in business.

It feels great to know that DIY climate science education and fact checking beats 99 percent of these spin artists- for-hire elitists and other useful idiots.

August 1, 2019 1:35 pm

If these people really thought the planet was dying or something and if they really cared, they would fly those private jets straight at the nearest Chinese or Indian coal power plant. Sacrifice for the greater good. What would be more important than our dear Planet? Yet, they don’t do that. Nobody does that. They just talk and do nothing. That should tell you how serious they are.

Their talks become more and more hysterical each year, but their actions remain the same. 18 months remaining? Surely the only real option left is suicide bombing and war against those evil fossil fuel power plants? How long is the media and the public going to ignore this and pretend everyone actually cares? Surely eventually comes the point where even the mainstream media admits that this is stupid.

The A-list are the post children for Hypocrisy.

Sicily climate change retreat for the A list jet setters, compared to Hungry Games’ city of the super rich, Panem, and its removed from real life, inhabitants.


What is wholly unforgivable, though, is the hypocrisy.

Most of us, when we watched The Hunger Games and saw the debauched, freakish, selfish, spoilt, arrogant, out-of-touch grotesques who lived in the big city of Panem, realised that it was supposed to be a warning.

But Di Caprio, Katy Perry, George Clooney, Harry Styles, Chris Martin and the various other celebrities promoting this green appear to have mistaken it for an instruction manual.

August 3, 2019 3:09 pm

Ouch! A commentary from Rex Murphy…

Rex Murphy: There’s no hypocrite like a rich, jet-setting anti-global-warming one
The official count of private jets wafting into Palermo for the ‘great consult’ stands at 114, for a maximum of 300 attending — three per jet

Today’s text is from the Gospel of Matthew, KJV: Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye are like unto whited sepulchres, which indeed appear beautiful outward, but are within full of dead men’s bones, and of all uncleanness.

Every issue has its hypocrites, those who preach the cause but act its opposite.

But there is no issue on this orbiting Earth, nor has there even been, that has the burden and depth, the volume and intensity of the rawest hypocrisy — that burns on the flames of hypocrisy itself — as that of global warming.
