It ain't easy being green, and in the case of Barack Obama's inaugural, it seems like he's not even trying to green it up. According to the Institute for Liberty, the Obamathon in Washington will produce about 575 million pounds of CO2 emissions.
The IFL finds: * Celebrities, politicians, and bigwigs using 600 private jets will produce 25,320,000 POUNDS of CO2 * Personal vehicles could account for 262,483,200 POUNDS of CO2 * n the parade, horses alone will produce more than 400 POUNDS of CO2
It would take the average U.S. household 57,598 years to produce a carbon footprint equal to that of the new president’s housewarming party
But, it is interesting that the folks that claim to be the best, most mean and green, tree hugging, global warming priests around are going to be responsible for this conflagration of globalony destruction.
