Don't worry. I'm sure these will be non-polluting private jets powered by carbon offsets and unicorn magic. They will not in any way add to the heat death of the earth. Unlike you, toting your groceries home in a plastic bag in the back on an SUV.

You should be ashamed of yourself. Why can't you fly around in a private plane like these people who really care about the environment?

A squadron of 1,700 private jets are rumbling into Davos, Switzerland, this week to discuss global warming and other issues as the annual World Economic Forum gets underway.

The influx of private jets is so great, the Swiss Armed Forces has been forced to open up a military air base for the first time ever to absorb all the super rich flying their private jets into the event, reports Newsweek.

But it's for a good cause.

What's Next? A Climate for Action: Through a powerful visual narrative, Nobel Laureate Al Gore reveals what's next for climate in 2015.

Speakers: Al Gore, Pharrell Williams, Kevin Wall

If only everyone could be as enormously conscientious as these people flying private jets to warn us that it's time to make home heating more expensive, outlaw plastic bags and price food staples further out of reach.
