Climate Change Versus Rich And Famous Globally In A Nutshell

climate change versus rich and famous globally in a nutshell | Breaking News

David Attenborough talked about the urgency which is needed to tackle climate change in Davos (Switzerland) but he could not convince his audience. Many private jets landed in Davos with the ‘elite’ from around the world. They would lecture the massa bout the fact that they are more worried than ever about climate change. What?
So a great amount of privileged enjoy unlimeted wealth while many lack basic resources. While inequality is part of life it is the scale, the high levels of inequality which is worrying.

One of the reasons is that the rich and wealthy get tax benefits and worse don’t pay tax in countries where they have businesses. Also there are the taxs-heavens. Maybe the last are in a certain way legal at least it is unethical.

Environmental issues versus philantropic organisations

In combination with environmental issues on a large scale billions of people don’t get what they are entiteled to.
Often you see these elite starting their philantropic organisations to offer some relief to pressing issues while if they would pay their employees a healthy salary and pay taxs the way it should in the countries where it belongs the problems would be much less. This way philantropic organisation would hardly be nessecary.

Mr. Rutger Bregman (historian and author of Utopia for Realists; How We Can Build the Ideal World: from the Netherlands, criticised the event in Davos for its focus on philanthropy rather than tax avoidance and the need for fair taxation to reduce poverty.
