Hipocrisy? You betcha!
"Our GREEN Leader takes a 747 Air Force One with fighter escorts and the ATC diversions of 100's of commercial flights, for the ORACLE of OPTIMISM, to fly 114 miles from Washington DC to Williamsburg, VA. It can't be GREEN, so it definitely must be a STIMULUS on the ECONOMY! :rolleyes:

I presume taking Marine One helicopter was out of the question? There's the SAME CHANGE for yah AMERICA.

Obama warns of “Irreversible Catastrophe” on Climate, says he will not deny facts (http://www.green-blog.org/2009/01/28/obama-warns-of-irreversible-catastrophe-on-climate-says-he-will-not-deny-facts/)

From the GREEN BLOG website, Jan 28, 2009:


Yesterday Barack Obama delivered a speech about jobs, energy independence, and climate change (http://www.whitehouse.gov/blog_post/Fromperiltoprogress/) as he “will direct federal regulators to move swiftly to grant California and 13 other states the right to set strict automobile emissions and fuel efficiency standards,” the NYT reports (http://www.nytimes.com/2009/01/26/us/politics/26calif.html?_r=1&hp).
“The directive makes good on an Obama campaign pledge and signifies a sharp reversal of Bush administration policy. Granting California and the other states the right to regulate tailpipe emissions would be one of the most emphatic actions Mr. Obama could take to quickly put his stamp on environmental policy.”
In the speech Obama said that “no single issue is as fundamental to our future as energy” and that the dependence on oil is “one of the most serious threats” USA has faced.
“At a time of such great challenge for America, no single issue is as fundamental to our future as energy.
America’s dependence on oil is one of the most serious threats that our nation has faced. It bankrolls dictators, pays for nuclear proliferation and funds both sides of our struggle against terrorism. It puts the American people at the mercy of shifting gas prices, stifles innovation, and sets back our ability to compete.
These urgent dangers to our national and economic security are compounded by the long-term threat of climate change, which, if left unchecked, could result in violent conflict, terrible storms, shrinking coastlines, and irreversible catastrophe.”
