Yes, President Obama Should Forgo Air Travel to Prove He Is Serious About Climate Change

President Obama flew to Los Angeles on Wednesday to receive a human rights award from Steven Spielberg, just days after the White House officially revived its push for “urgent action” on climate change.

Not to mention all the extra traffic congestion Obama’s visit caused, which resulted in even more carbon dioxide being pumped into the atmosphere. Even in Los Angeles, not everyone can afford to shell out $69,900 for a Tesla ($62,400 after federal tax credit). In fairness to Obama, though, he wasn’t just receiving an award. On Thursday, he plans to attend a fundraiser at a billionaire’s beachfront mansion in San Diego.

At the height of the first Arab oil embargo, Nixon flew commercial at least once. Photo op, sure, but at least he didn’t have the same disdain for the country as current democrats.

Yeah, but he's

  1. not serious about it
  2. believes he is a higher order of being than ordinary Americans, so he can be serious about it for you but not serious about it for himself
  3. confident he can make up some BS excuse line of nonsense that the MSM will sell to the LIVS

I was out surfing in Manhattan Beach yesterday and Obama’s fleet of helicopters flew by about a 1/4 mile offshore at a height of about 250 feet. There was a lead helicopter, a trailing helicopter and five (yes that’s five) helicopters in the middle. It was quite the sight. Apparently, the Secret Service uses 5 helicopters as Marine One so terrorists armed with RPGs will have a harder time guessing which helicopter to hit in order to take out the President.

***Nixon flew commercial at least once.***

I remember that! The critics said it was unnecessary as the crew of AF-1 still had to fly during that week to keep up their proficiency.

To show he’s serious about “climate disruption” he should be removed from society and imprisoned (so should his loser grifter family and his minions).

If they are going to call us Climate change deniers, we should respond by calling them CLIMATE CHANGE HYPOCRITES.

Shhhh! If we make too big an issue of this, they’ll make the taxpayers buy climate offsets.

None of those guys believe it’s true. Just the ignorant masses who believe any actor or paid stooge who puts on a white lab coat and tells the Disruptifacation lies.

One of the key goals of the GW hoax is to make energy use unaffordable for “the masses”, and let the elite enjoy their lifestyles unhindered.

“Climanazis”?

“Climate hypocrites” is a better term because it simply and accurately describes the hysterics who preach austerity for us while living a lavish lifestyle that generates 1000x the CO2 that of the avg person. It also benefits from not sounding too political or extremist.

For the entirety of this grifter’s reign of terror, I lived on the flight path for Andrews Air Force Base, and know many of the airmen on the base.

This punk travels practically every day. Practically every day.
