So, what's the Carbon Footprint for the Inaugration?

According to the Institute for Liberty, the Obamathon in Washington will produce about 575 million pounds of CO2 emissions. In a study titled Carbon Bigfoot, the IFL concludes that the CO2 glut will be substantial. From the global warming wrecking celebs flying all over the place in their many private jets, to the many hundreds if not thousands of vehicles that will be used to get people to and in the midst of the inaugural, the CO2 carnage is at the amazingly high level.Celebrities, politicians, and bigwigs using 600 private jets will produce 25,320,000 POUNDS of CO2
Personal vehicles could account for 262,483,200 POUNDS of CO2
n the parade, horses alone will produce more than 400 POUNDS of CO2
It would take the average U.S. household 57,598 years to produce a carbon footprint equal to that of the new president’s housewarming party.

  • It is interesting that the folks that claim to be the best, most mean and green, tree hugging, global warming priests around are going to be responsible for this conflagration of globalony destruction. The Obamathon in Washington will be a global warming catastrophe... but here's guessing that no one will say a cross word in the Media!

    Does anyone think Al Gore will Criticize Obama?

  • I am saying for a bunch of liberals who claim to be Green, they are doing a wonderful job at not caring about the emissions they intend to produce.

    So is going green only 'Chic' when it is socially convenient?

  • the whole global warming question the other day got so whacked out by the environmentalists and liberals it was appalling, they know what they do, things like this they know what they are doing. as long as THEY are doing it it's ok, just as long as nobody else does. this is is folks, the new don't do as i do pres, the do as i tell you pres. how big is his carbon footprint with all those cigarettes he is still smoking. at least bill didn't smoke his cigars, his footprint was more of the DNA variety rather than carbon.

  • Can you say Liberals are Hypocrites!

    Liberals can talk bad about Bush. How dare you talk bad about Obama!

    Liberals can do what we want to the earth, we love it more than you do

    Liberals can partake in cronyism, Conservative? Not so much, we will bitch at all Conservative cronies, because we are Liberals and perfect.

    Liberals can hire liars and cheaters, cause we are BETTER

    Liberals invented Pay to Play, but we will bust ANYONE else who tries it (besides our own)
