    Global warming food for thought.......

    I was talking to a friend at work about global warming and I started thinking about all the flights Obama has taken so far this year. Then I figured if global warming is as big a issue as they make it out to be then they'd probably lead be example on cutting down those horrible carbon emissions. Like they say actions speak louder then words. So I crunched some numbers:

    Letís just look at his recent flight to Copenhagen

    Its 4056 miles from Washington D.C. to Copenhagen
    Air Force one along burns about 5 gallons of fuel per mile
    So round trip they burned 40,560 gallons of fuel

    My truckís combined highway/city averages 15 miles a gallon
    So 40,560 gallons of fuel would be enough fuel for my truck to travel 608,400 miles
    I roughly put about 15,000 miles a year on my truck

    So to sum it up that one round trip flight had the same "carbon footprint" as 40 1/2 years of me driving.

    But I agree this global warming thing is just crap. Its just a way to try to control the masses

    is like calling a drug dealer an 'unlicensed pharmacist '.

    And that's just AF1. Everywhere the President goes, two birds are flown... so, you can double that original figure. Not to mention all the additional support craft and resource used to support the primary mission. The end result of any presidential trip amounts to a tremendous amount of REAL COST... all courtesy of the American taxpayer. :(

    Then… if you happen to believe in the ridiculous fiction regarding global warming and all that make believe carbon emissions crap... well, then… there's all that nonsense to consider too!

    But, with regards to these sorts of people leading by example—little chance of that happening—the rules they make are for the little people to follow. They are simply too important to be bothered with following the same set of rules! Don’t you know?!

    +1. It is a farce designed to fleece the American taxpayers and redistribute the wealth.

    The joys of automating your work! You kick it off, let it run, and play on you favorite website! When it completes check the results and go home for the day.
