“Do As I Say, Not As I Do”: The Motto of Liberals Everywhere (and, Apparently, the Obamadministration)
Only three years into George W. Bush’s eight-year tenure as President of the United States, BDS-afflicted lefties, led by Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., were branding Bush an “environmental criminal” who would “go down in history as America’s worst environmental president.”
“When the Republican right managed to install George W. Bush as president in 2000 [Auth: Remember, he was Selected Not Elected!], movement leaders once again set about doing what they had attempted to do since the Reagan years: eviscerate the infrastructure of laws and regulations that protect the environment,” Kennedy wrote.
By 2007, the verdict was unquestionably confirmed in the mind of the far-left environmentalist movement: Bush and his policies have become “an outright catastrophe for greenhouse gas emissions and future generations,” wrote liberal website Climate Progress.
The latter of those was referring to the increase in U.S. carbon emissions from 5,888 million metric tons in 2006 to 5,984 MMTCO2 in 2007 (a rise of 96 MMTCO2, or 211.6 billion pounds of CO2).
So here’s a question for you: if a rise of 211.6B lbs of CO2 nationwide in a full year makes Bush an “environmental criminal,” then what does an output of 575 million lbs of CO2 in one weekend, because of one person make the individual responsible for that output?
For more on the “do as I say, not as I do” carbon emission of the far-left environmentalist wing (remember Al Gore and his $20,000 monthly power bill, racked up in his pursuit of us shutting our power off?), here’s a graph showing what all goes into making this weekend of Barack Obama a power consumer to such a degree that a normal house (not Al Gore’s) would take nearly 58,000 years to equal it.
