If Obama Is So Concerned About Global Warming, Why Did He Emit 350 Tons of CO2 on Earth Day?

Obama's Gas guzzling Air Force One cost

While the rest of us are supposed to follow all the rules and live within our means somehow, government elitists like the Obama's get to live at the upper level of the richest oligarchs, except that all the while they vilify the rich, they live their elitist lifestyle on the people's money.

In the spirit of utter hypocrisy that Obama usually operates in, he flew to Japan for the start of his Asia tour on Earth Day, burning some 35,000 gallons of jet fuel on the largest most gas guzzling plane for a Head of State in the history of the world. Air Force One gets an estimated 5 gallons per mile on fuel efficiency.

President Obama's first order of business in Japan was to dine at a $300 per meal sushi restaurant, courtesy of the American taxpayer.

While the president decries the rich and he wants them to "pay their fair share," his personal message to the American taxpayer and the environmentalist cause is, "go screw yourself."

President Obama has told us all how scared he is of global warming, and that if we don’t “act now,” then it will be the second coming of Gozer the Gozerian, aka Gozer the Destructor, Volguus Zildrohar, Gozer the Traveler and Lord of the Sebouillia. (Sorry, not trying to give the Cult of Gozer a bad rap by conflating them with global warmists).

After all, Obama has told us countless times how much we all need to cut back on our emissions and get some “skin in the game,” because if we don’t baby polar bears are going to drown and the earth is going to incinerate in a giant ball of molten lava. Roughly paraphrasing, but that’s the gist.

Well, this is how much Obama loves the planet: he burned 35,000 gallons of fuel and emitted 350 tons of CO2 by his lonesome just on Earth Day alone.

As the Daily Mail calculated:

- President took Marine One chopper to Andrews Air Force Base and will fly to Washington state and Tokyo, Japan on Tuesday
- ‘Earth Day is about taking action,’ the White House declared shortly after takeoff
- Air Force One consumes 5 gallons of jet fuel for every mile it flies
- The U.S. Energy Information Administration estimates that burning the fuel emits 21.1 pounds of CO2 per gallon
- Total presidential fuel consumption for Earth Day, not including automobile motorcades, is an estimated 35,609 gallons
