Obama Air Force One shocked

In all my history of watching and studying political gamesmanship, I have never seen such an agenda being pushed on the world as is the agenda of climate change. If you have read many of our posts around here at you know that I mention the environment quite often and say that we need to do all we can to keep it healthy and clean. But the agenda of climate change is an entirely different matter.

Climate change is an agenda of the elite and it is being pushed on us for nothing other than control of natural resources and industrial capital and to grow the size of government. Why is it that those pushing hardest about climate change are Hollywood elites, high level media pundits and government lobbyists and bureaucrats that stand to gain the most from their agenda?

And of course, the ultra hypocrisy of these climate change elites is rampant with people like Al Gore flying all over the country in fuel guzzling jets and riding in fancy limousines to go to speeches and lament on how wasteful we are as Americans.

And then there is President Obama who just took a trip to Alaska to give speeches about global warming and then get photo-ops of him looking contemplatively at melting glaciers. The hypocrisy in all this is, it costs enormous amounts of money and fuel to ferry Obama all the way across this nation and back again to lecture us on being wasteful. Wouldn't making a YouTube video be a lot cheaper and much easier on the environment?

So how much does it cost and what it the environmental impact for the president to fly Air Force One to Alaska and actually look like he gives a rip about the environment? Let's break it down:

1. Air Force One burns 5 gallons of fuel for every mile it travels.

2. It is roughly 4,000 air miles to Anchorage Alaska from Washington DC thus taking 20,000 gallons of expensive fuel to get there.

3. Jet fuel puts 21.1 pounds of carbon into the atmosphere for every gallon burned thus pumping out 422,000 pounds or 211 tons of CO2 to get to Alaska.

4. It costs $228,000 an hour to operate Air Force One.

5. It is roughly an 8.5 hour flight to Anchorage from DC thus costing $1,938,000 to get President Obama to Alaska.

6. Obama has to get back, so DOUBLE all those costs and impacts for a total of 40,000 gallons of fuel burned, 844,000 pounds or 422 tons of CO2 emitted costing $3,876,000, just to fly Air Force One, so Obama can look like he is doing something about climate change.

7. That does not include any military support planes, multiple gas guzzling limos, accommodations for some 50 secret service agents, local police and other resources. When you add all that in, President Obama probably costs the American taxpayers $10 million or more so he could have his picture taken.

Don't you just love your tax dollars working hard?
