conservative tribune-Liberals Humiliated After Learning Who Has Biggest “Carbon Footprint” in the World–21jh.,b38
For a world leader supposedly concerned over global warming/climate change/regular weather cycles, President Barack Obama certainly hasn’t lived up to the standard he is seeking to impose on everyday Americans.
While Obama has repeatedly lectured the American people about harmful carbon emissions and pollution, he is actually personally responsible for being a massive polluter and has possibly the world’s “largest carbon footprint,” according to The Weekly Standard.
The president actually admitted his hypocrisy in a recent fawning interview piece by The Atlantic, in which he related an anecdote about one of his many travels to a foreign country, and all of the things that typically go with him on such trips.
While visiting Malaysia, Obama reportedly told his aides, “I have the world’s largest carbon footprint,” largely referring to his armored limousine, the contingent of aides, security and press, all of their vehicles, and of course the gas-guzzling Air Force One.
According to TIME, Obama had already logged more than 450,000 miles in international travel alone, not counting all of his jaunts across the country since he had begun his term, as of the beginning of 2015. He obviously did more traveling last year, and has numerous trips scheduled to take him around the world in his final year in office.
Of course, threatening to destroy the U.S. economy over the spectre of climate change while personally creating the biggest carbon footprint in the world is not Obama’s only act of glaring hypocrisy.
Our rabidly anti-gun president is routinely surrounded by many men with guns for protection, a luxury the overwhelming majority of American citizens can’t afford.
Our Common Core-embracing president, who would have you send your children to failing indoctrination centers known as public schools, has enrolled his own daughters in one of the most prestigious private schools in the D.C. area.
And of course we can’t forget how our anti-capitalism, wealth-bashing, pay-your-fair-share president has himself become obscenely wealthy by the left’s own standards while he has been in office.
