Bill Gates and Jeff Bezos were slammed as hypocrites for lecturing the world on the need to combat climate change by reducing carbon footprint while at the same time reportedly vacationing on superyachts off the coast of Turkey. 

Multi-billionaire and Microsoft founder Gates celebrated his 66th birthday in Turkey in the company of fellow tycoon and Amazon founder Bezos on Friday.

Bezos was among the 50 guests invited to Gates' private party beside the Mediterranean. It's not clear whether any of Gates' family helped him celebrate at his exclusive bash. 

According to reports, Bezos traveled to Gates’ superyacht by helicopter.

The Blue Origin founder is said to have made the 120-mile round trip journey by chopper from Govoka to the resort town of Fethiye.

The jet fuel used to power helicopters emits 21.095 pounds of carbon dioxide per gallon burned.

Since helicopters use up approximately 10.75 miles per gallon, Bezos’ helicopter emitted some 215 pounds of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere.

Both Bezos and Gates are reportedly staying on superyachts - each of which emits 7,020 tons of carbon dioxide per year, or 19 tons per day.

Social media users reacted with fury, noting that Bezos and Gates were contradicting their own statements about the need to tackle climate change.

'The sick and twisted for a "66th" birthday party,' tweeted one Twitter user, who accused them of having a 'do as I say not as I do' attitude.

Another Twitter user commented: 'The horrendous energy waster Bill Gates makes his contribution to CO2 reduction for his 66th birthday by having his fat body transported by his own yacht and then by helicopter to a certain place.'

'Guess the rules don't apply to them?' according to Rose Y.

RD Carrington commented: 'More from people who will be bashing the rest of us again next week about - climate change.' 

Another Twitter user wrote: 'These are the people putting us in our place and lecturing us about about the so called "climate crisis".' 

A Twitter user with the handle 'LynnT' commented in response to the reports of the Bezos-Gates meeting: 'But climate change y’all.' 

Another Twitter user wondered whether Bezos and Gates had 'no climate change fear?'
