They’re at it again.
A slew of A-list celebrities have flocked to Sicily, Italy on private jets and massive yachts to discuss the woes of global warming caused, they say, but things like private jets and massive yachts.
The founders of Google invited a a throng of the rich and famous, including former President Barack Obama, Prince Harry, actor Leonardo DiCaprio and singer Katy Perry for a huge 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,” reports the New York Post.
“Everything is about global warming, that is the major topic this year,” a source told The Post.
The cost of the extravaganza — $20 million.
According to the Italian press, at least 114 private jets will land at the Palermo airport.
The Post crunched the numbers and found that 114 flights from Los Angeles to Palermo, Italy, where Camp guests landed, would spew an estimated 100,000 kilograms of CO2 into the air.
“Google Camp is meant to be a place where influential people get together to discuss how to make the world better,” one regular attendee told The Post.
“There will likely be discussions about online privacy, politics, human rights, and of course, the environment, which makes it highly ironic that this event requires 114 private jets to happen,” they said.
Attendees pay for their own travel to Sicily, but then Google foots the bill for everything at the opulent Verdura Resort, which reportedly features two golf courses and where rooms start at $903 a night.
Other stars attending the mega-party include Perry’s fiancee Orlando Bloom, singer Harry Styles, actor Bradley Cooper, singer Nick Jonas, actor Priyanka Chopra, TV personality Gayle King, Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg, designer Diane von Furstenberg and media mogul Barry Diller. “Furstenberg and Diller reportedly arrived via their $200 million yacht Eos; Dreamworks founder David Geffen is said to have given Perry and Bloom a lift to the event on his $400 million yacht, Rising Sun,” Fox News reported.
Said the Post: “Guests dine among ancient temples and are treated to performances by the likes of Sting, Elton John and Coldplay’s Chris Martin, before retiring to their suites at the Verdura Resort.”
