National Geographic Misses Key Detail 

Despite frequently warning about the dangers of climate change from its pages, even declaring it “the greatest threat to human health,” National Geographic makes oodles of cash selling $100,000 “expeditions” in which the very wealthy can fly on the publication’s own Boeing 757, the Washington Free Beacon reported.

National Geographic’s “specially outfitted” jet includes a private chef, “VIP-style leather seating,” and a “plush, sleek interior design,” according to its website.

The expeditions enable the very rich to “fly in exceptional comfort” as National Geographic takes them to “far-flung destinations” where they can see “legendary wildlife,” according to the website.

On one of these 24-day expeditions, wealthy travelers fly almost 30,000 miles.

According to the Free Beacon, on average, planes produce 53.3 pounds of carbon for each air mile flown, meaning the 30,000-mile flight would produce over 1.5 million pounds of carbon. An American produces on average about 32,000 pounds of carbon in a year.

Ironically, National Geographic argued in one article that transportation is one of the biggest sources of carbon emissions, which it claimed is a “byproduct of human activities.”

For $108,000, travelers can take National Geographic’s “Wildlife of the World by Private Jet” expedition, which takes them to Malaysia to see the elephants, then to Rwanda to see mountain gorillas, then to India for the Bengal tigers, and on to to the Maldives to see the “dazzling marine life.” The expedition then wraps up with a trip to Rome.

And all of it aboard National Geographic’s private carbon-producing Boeing 757.

As the Washington Free Beacon notes, National Geographic frequently features articles lamenting the supposed climate crisis, which it has claimed is responsible for the destruction of coral reefs, melting icebergs, forest fires, deadly flooding, and the rise of mosquito-borne diseases.

In an article published last fall, National Geographic claimed that climate change is “the greatest threat to human health in recorded history.”
