Obama; Earth Day For Thee But Not For Me

Barack Obama is admittedly the most tech savvy person ever to occupy the White House. His network of electronic supporters is in the millions and he is so attached to new technology he is getting a special super dooper Blackberry so he can stay connected. His staff includes a bunch of young folks who are wise to the electronic age. He has used web based video to his advantage and yet, he declined to use technology on Earth Day.

Barack Obama went on a little trip to Des Moines in Air Force One to talk about Earth Day and how we all had to conserve. He burned about 9000 gallons of fuel in order to tell us to conserve. This is another do as I say moment for an elected official.

With all the tech wizards he has around him would it have been too difficult for him to give his sermon from the White House and broadcast it via the Internet? He could have saved 9000 gallons of fuel and the resultant carbon footprint by using technology instead of an airplane (and helicopter and limo).

He is cut from the same cloth as Al Gore who tells us to ride bikes and reduce our carbon footprint while he uses more energy in a year than some small countries.

It all amounts to we the people are supposed to cut back and conserve but those who are leading us are free to use as they wish because they are important. Besides, the taxpayer paid for the fuel and the trip so what does it matter to The Won?

I have always been skeptical of Earth Day and the celebrations. The hypocrites who attend the gatherings use fuel to get there, smoke tobacco (and who knows what else) and then leave tons of trash lying around. All the while they tell us to save the planet for our children.

If only they had the same approach with regard to the out of control spending by our government. Man Made Global Warming is unproven and those who, in 1975, said we would be in an ice age by 2000 are telling us we will be melting in a decade. They can’t tell us with certainty what the weather will be this weekend but they can tell us what it will be in 10 years.

The debt we are accumulating, at record paces mind you, will absolutely be passed on to our children and grandchildren and the sad thing is they have no hope of ever being able to pay it all off.

All that fuel and he could have accomplished much more by using the web.

Do as I say and not as I do you peons.

Before the libs start linking to show me how much fuel Bush used on past Earth Days keep in mind the premise. Obama is the most tech savvy leader of this country. And Obama is a worshiper of global warming while Bush was not.

    I cease being amazed by these “green” people who are the johnny come latelies when it comes to being kind to the planet. What hypocrites- like Barry, jetting to Iowa to tout wind turbines, omitting the fact that over 40,000 migratory birds are killed each year with just the turbines we now have, not to mention the ones Barry wants to put up, along with his new friend Boone Pickens.
    Boone wants the government to pay for the transmission lines from the turbines to the electric grid. The transmission lines cost the most, and the extensive use of “eminent domain” to seize land needed to lay these lines make this a contentious problem for the farmers and ranchers that are closer to the land than ANYONE in an administration position.
    All these so called experts have no clue. In 1970, they forecast famine, an Ice Age, massive plagues, all by the year 1985.
    Well- I guess we dodged that bullet- but now, the planet is warming- .37 degrees celsius, a very small amount.
    While ice is melting in the north, it’s growing in the south, in Antarctica.
    I mean,I am no professor, but I have spent more time outside than any two of them, so can safely say that I know weather, and everything is fine.
    Do we need to clean up the planet? Heck yes- humans are sloppy creatures.
    Is the Earth dying, and did we do it? No, no, and no.
    But it is true that there are a lot of people who believe that they are the Messiah, if only you will follow.
    Be smarter than that.

    I’ve been conserving most of my life. It’s a matter of economics, and growing up with grandparents who went through the depression, plus being a child of recession myself. “Close that refrigerator door, Turn off those lights, Don’t let that water run while your brushing your teeth”! Anyone hear that stuff growing up? I don’t mind learning new tips and ways to conserve, but this Green Day Bull just irks me to no end. Ps. My major was environmental science! But this rhetoric of it being a bottom up process is bull.

      I think what irks me most (besides their believing that THEY discovered the green movement), is that they treat this like it is the new religion- or is supposed to supplant religion in our lives.
      It wouldn’t surprise me if the administration asked people to “tithe” 10% of their money, like a church, all to go “to the Planet”
      Yeah, right.
