Amazon founder Jeff Bezos flew his private jet to Glasgow, Scotland, for a United Nations summit aimed at cutting global greenhouse gas emissions, photos obtained by Fox News reveal. 

Scores of high-rollers from around the world took private planes into Glasgow over the weekend for the COP26 summit, including Bezos, who has repeatedly claimed climate change is the “biggest threat” to the planet.

Bezos’s jet has been valued in the neighborhood of $65 million. 

The Amazon founder also met with Charles, Prince of Wales, on Sunday to discuss the importance of fighting climate change.

“The Prince of Wales has been involved in fighting climate change and protecting our beautiful world far longer than most,” Bezos tweeted.

“We had a chance to discuss these important issues on the eve of #COP26 — looking for solutions to heal our world, and how the @BezosEarthFund can help,” he added.

Critics on social media assailed summit attendees for choosing to utilize private jets for traveling to a climate event. 

Bezos is far from the only climate hawk to indulge in private airfare.

President Biden’s climate czar, John Kerry, has a family jet despite the fact that such planes are notoriously bad for the environment. 

Kerry even took a private jet to Iceland in 2019 to receive the Arctic Circle award for climate leadership. 

Kerry defended his high-pollution ride at the time, calling it “the only choice for somebody like me who is traveling the world to win this battle” in an interview obtained by Fox News.
