World Economic Forum elites blasted for talking about climate dangers posed by coffee: ‘Hands off’

Jan 24, 2024 | Political News

A video featuring elites at the World Economic Forum (WEF) Annual Meeting in Davos, Switzerland, discussing how coffee production contributes to climate change infuriated social media users after going viral.

X users besieged the comment section of a video featuring Swiss banker Hubert Keller telling a WEF panel last week how much CO2 coffee production puts into the atmosphere, warning that “they’re coming for your coffee.”

In the clip — which was shared to X on Monday and has since racked up over three million views and many comments — Keller noted just how many “tonnes” (metric unit equivalent to 2,204 lbs) of CO2 coffee makers put into the atmosphere globally when producing their product.
