It ain’t easy being green, and in the case of Barack Obama’s inaugural, it seems like he’s not even trying to green it up. 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.
The IFL finds:
- 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
The IFL also came up with a revealing illustration about what this all means.
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
Granted the IFL scoffs at the very notion of worrying, as greenwits do, that all this revenue generating travel and commerce is a bad thing.
But, 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 Old Media!
