Obama Speaks on Global Warming, Then Spews CO2 With Private Jet, 13-Car Motorcade

Current President Donald Trump may be living it up in Saudi Arabia, but former President Barack Obama certainly isn’t slacking off on the sweet life.

Obama and his wife Michelle are in Italy this week on vacation, after the former President spoke to the Institute for International Political Studies in Milan on the importance of addressing climate change, to preserve the world’s food supply and protect its underprivileged.

Apparently, he’s decided to demonstrate humanity’s contribution to global warming by making his own carbon footprint as big as possible.

On Friday, the Obama’s jetted into Tuscany on a private – not a commercial – plane, escorted into a small Florentine airport by six additional military jets, according to Italian state television. Footage of the landing has been broadcasting across Italy all weekend.

Once on the ground, the Obamas slipped into a black SUV and drove to the private Tuscan villa, Borgo Finocchieto, where they’ll be staying in all week, escorted by a 13-car motorcade.

In just his trip back and forth to Italy, for his presentation and his vacation, Barack Obama has emitted more than 16 metric tons of carbon – just shy of what an average American emits in a yearAdd to that the motorcade, the internal travel in Italy, and, of course, the villa, and Obama and his wife have easily emitted more carbon in one single week than most Americans will in 2017.

Last week, Obama implored those same Americans – and their compatriots across Europe – to cut down on their carbon emissions in order to draw global warming to a standstill.

    The observation that CO2 is a ghg (greenhouse gas) is a shallow penetration of the science. Delve deeper into the science and discover that CO2 does not now, has never had and will never have a significant effect on climate.

    C’mon Barack! Live your words, and buy a fleet of Schwinn bicycles for yourself and your Secret Service detail. That would really send a message that you believe all this stuff!

    The next time there is a high roller, black tie, climate change event in Milan just pedal your way to the American coast and sail away on the winds to Italy.
    ARRIVEDERCI !!!

    The current batch of liberal con-men don’t even pretend to walk the talk . OK a Prius is in the fleet somewhere .
    A $Trillion dollar tax payer shake down is at stake so facts are irrelevant .
    You know when Exxon supports a carbon tax a sue settle can’t be far off but maybe they won’t need it if Mr. Trump plays ball . My bet …without question he rolls over .
