Yes!!! Emma Thompson is flying first class to be there from Los Angeles and then flying first class back.
Bono is flying in one of his private Lear jets from Ireland to be there and then back home again.
Greta Thunberg is on her way in the 'carbon neutral' yacht, you know the one that took 16 TIMES AS MUCH energy to make compared to the usual aluminum/glassfibre materials used.
Prince Harry and Meghan (plus all their lackeys) have borrowed their friends private jet to make another 'green' appearance.
All the usual soap dodgers are beavering away making poorly worded placards and arranging lifts to and from the protest in their mums V8 4x4s.
Hippies are practicing hitting homemade drums tunelessly for hour after hour.
VFR and Monkey104 like this.

Probably because according to this on the 1st Jan 2020 a state of emergency concerning climate change will be declared!


Quote:
El 1 de enero de 2020 se declarará la emergencia climática en la ciudad y, para hacerle frente, el Gobierno municipal activará este otoño un paquete de medidas urgentes acordadas en la primera Mesa por la Emergencia Climática, en que participan más de doscientas entidades, expertos y representantes de las administraciones. La actuación incluye acciones en el ámbito de la movilidad, el urbanismo, los entornos escolares, la energía y la gestión de residuos.
La emergencia climática, decretada a partir del 1 de enero de 2020 | Barcelona por el Clima | Ayuntamiento de Barcelona
Looks like that is the page to look at if you want info
