Katy Perry, more stars attend Google summit on climate change in private jets, mega yachts

Numerous guests, including Obama and DiCaprio - who has his own climate change foundation - have described global warming as the biggest threat to future generations.

Of course, this astounding climate change hypocrisy is nothing new.

Among those attending Camp Hypocrite?

Leonardo DiCaprio attends the Once Upon A Time in Hollywood Photocall in London at The Corinthia Hotel on July 31, 2019 in London, England.

While the guest list is top secret, those reportedly invited to "Camp Google" - hosted by company founders Larry Page and Sergei Brin - are Tom Cruise, Barack Obama, Mark Zuckerberg, Prince Harry, Leonardo DiCaprio, Bradley Cooper, Katy Perry, John Legend, Harry Styles, Stella McCarthy, Nick Jonas, Gayle King, and Barry Diller.

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

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

FTC reportedly examining Amazon's e-commerce partnership with Apple
An FTC spokesperson said the commission has no comment on the report, and Amazon also declined to comment to CRN . The FTC and the Justice Department are ramping up scrutiny of Silicon Valley's biggest companies.

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.

There has been criticism of the annual Google Camp summit however, as up to 200 celebrities have descended on the island, chartering 114 private jets to travel there, according to Italian press reports.

According to calculations by the Post, 114 jet flights from Los Angeles to Palermo, Italy - where the Falcone Borsellino Airport is located - would expel an estimated 100,000 kilograms of CO2, a known greenhouse gas, into the atmosphere.

Bloomberg reports numerous yachts are now moored off the beach at Verdura Resort having discharged their passengers; German pharmaceutical titan Udo J. Vetter's sailing yacht Aquarius, Barry Diller and Diane Von Furstenberg's sailing yacht EOS, Graeme Hart's yacht Ulysses with others en route including David Geffen's yacht Rising Sun, Google's Eric Schmidt's yacht Infinity and its support vessel Intrepid, among them.

Music mogul David Geffen and Katy Perry on his Rising Sun yacht. Google is footing the bill, which is expected to be around $20 million.

The three-day event ironically is focused on climate change, but the world's rich and famous will also discuss human rights, politics and online privacy.
