CNN has bought the leftist idea that humans are a plague on the planet hook, line, and sinker. This is mostly because it, itself, is a leftist organization.
It’s the news outlet that believed Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s final solution for cows and encouraged us to lessen our beef intake by chewing on cricket burgers. In fact, CNN is so invested in the climate-change narrative that it has a panic page called CNN Climate.
So when CNN’s Oliver Darcy talked about how much went into crafting their debate stage for their 2019 Democratic debates, Twitter couldn’t help but hold their extravagance up to the light of CNN’s own self-righteousness.
Some more stats: There are more than 500 lights, and 25 cameras at the debate location.

To be fair, it is an impressive looking stage with a lot of pomp and circumstance lined up with it.
Twitter didn’t hold back.
Probably could have helped a few hundred people in Baltimore for just a fraction of what this cost. But do virtue signal more CNN.

What a waste of resources. Nothing to be proud of

Weird flex on the large carbon footprint, but I guess as long as people say climate change is bad, it'll even out.

Think of what 9 semi trucks could have done in Baltimore.

How much CO2 was emitted into the atmosphere by those 9 53-foot trucks Oliver?

Wow. Sounds environmentally harmful to me.

The beating CNN got over this is well deserved. It’s hard to take them seriously about their climate panic when they dish out enough carbon in the building of a stage for Democrats who likely won’t win 2020 unless some miracle happens.
Once again, we’re seeing the Democrats unofficial motto at play.
“It’s okay when we do it.”
You could easily make this a tweet about a GOP debate stage and without a doubt, you’d see op-eds and articles focusing on costs, manpower, and carbon-producing vehicles it took to construct it. The extravagance would be a black mark on the GOP and proof that they really are just all a bunch of rich environment destroying blowhards.
Yet the Democrats are more or less mum on it.
