Private jet from LVMH, so the beggars stopped polluting, but fair winds, Bernard!
The man who built his fortune by stealing and emptying the coffers of France without ever being worried, all for his personal profit and French leaders caught up in the scheme, without any government preventing him from doing so , worse he corrupted them all, we see the result now.

The Instagram account @laviondebernard tracks the journeys of a private LVMH jet. In one month, he completed 18, flew forty-six hours and released 176 tonnes of CO2.
Some lives pollute more than others. Instagram account creators @laviondebernard, who track the F-GVMA private jet from LVMH, demonstrate this in black and white. In one month, the jet made 18 trips, flew forty-six hours and released 176 tonnes of CO2. Data taken from sites like OpenSky-Network.org Where ADSBExchange.comwhere the figures are publicly available.
However, to keep the increase in global temperature to less than two degrees by 2050, the National Low-Carbon Strategy recommends emitting “only” 2 tonnes of CO2 per year and per person (an average French person emits rather close to 10 at present).
Although the flight data only concerns the plane (we do not know the number or the identity of the passengers), it is indeed the LVMH plane of which Bernard Arnault, third fortune in the world, is the CEO. Every day, the jet makes short trips between Paris and London, Paris and Nice, Paris and Milan and even between London and London where “Bernard […] owns a 129 hectare residence via a front company in the tax haven of Jersey,” says the @laviondebernard account.
How to measure these differences in lifestyles? “176 tons of CO2 in a month of flights, that’s seventeen years of carbon footprint for an average Frenchman”, say the creators of the site, who soberly describe themselves as “a boy and a girl under 30”. It will now take “explain to a worker that the kerosene of private jets is taxed less than its gasoline […]. The current economic system goes completely in the direction of the richest, and even values their destructive behavior”. These flights, like those revealed by the @ElonJet Twitter account which follows billionaire Elon Musk’s jet, are a tiny drop in the private air traffic where, according tos Le Figaro, “40% of flights are empty”. Rich, decarbonize yourselves!
