A-listers arrive in private jets, mega yachts for climate confab

The planet’s rich and famous arrived in Sicily to talk about climate change and putting their ample intellect into saving the planet.

They arrived in private jets and mega yachts, creating a smorgasbord of pollution.

Among those attending Camp Hypocrite? Former U.S. president Barack Obama, Prince Harry, Leonardo DiCaprio, Katy Perry and scores more of the great and good.

Google Camp is the brainchild of the search engine’s billionaire creators.

It’s a three-day mega-party on the Sicilian seaside that sources say will cost the tech giant $20 million. Oh, and don’t forget climate change.

Yay!

But whether the party favours include mirrors for the hypocritical jet set is another matter.

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

And while the veneer may be grey, the inside is shades of filthy grey and brown.

According to Italian media reports, guests were expected to arrive in an eye-popping 114 private jets.

The Post guesstimated that with 114 flights from Los Angeles to Palermo, the planes would have pumped an astonishing 100,000 kilos of C02 into the atmosphere.

“Google Camp is meant to be a place where influential people get together to discuss how to make the world better,” one frequent flier told the tabloid.

“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.”

The glitterati had to find their own way to Italy but after that, Google picked up the tab at the $1,200 per night Verdura Resort.

Each was invited personally by Google’s founders, although what Harry Styles, Orlando Bloom, Diane von Furstenberg and Barry Diller have cooked up to save the planet is anyone’s guess.

Von Furstenberg and Diller arrived on the media mogul’s $20- million yacht Eos, featuring two 2,300-horsepower diesel engines.

Perry and Bloom arrived on Dreamworks founder David Geffen’s $400-million yacht, the Rising Sun.

Perry was also spotted racing around the island in a Maserati SUV. Mileage: 15 miles per gallon in the city.

Among the others invited to Camp Consumption are Stella McCartney, Bradley Cooper, Nick Jonas, Priyanka Chopra, Gayle King and Facebook fiend Mark Zuckerberg.

They’ll enjoy performances from Sting, Elton John and Coldplay’s Chris Martin.
