Obama Speaks on Global Warming, Then Spews CO2 With Private Jet, 13-Car Motorcade

Do as I say, not as I do.

Of course he did.

From HeatStreet:  Current President Donald Trump may be living it up in Saudi Arabia, but former President Barack Obama certainly isn’t slacking off on the sweet life.

Obama and his wife Michelle are in Italy this week on vacation, after the former President spoke to the Institute for International Political Studies in Milan on the importance of addressing climate change, to preserve the world’s food supply and protect its underprivileged.

Apparently, he’s decided to demonstrate humanity’s contribution to global warming by making his own carbon footprint as big as possible.

On Friday, the Obama’s jetted into Tuscany on a private – not a commercial – plane, escorted into a small Florentine airport by six additional military jets, according to Italian state television. Footage of the landing has been broadcasting across Italy all weekend.

Once on the ground, the Obamas slipped into a black SUV and drove to the private Tuscan villa, Borgo Finocchieto, where they’ll be staying in all week, escorted by a 13-car motorcade.

The Villa, of course, is no mere motel, nestled in the Tuscan countryside just a few miles south of the city of Florence. They’ll be taking over an entire Tuscan village, where they’ll have their choice of 22 bedrooms, a library, several private spas and steam rooms, and wine-tasting room. Borgo Finocchieto also boasts commanding views of Tuscany’s vineyards.

It usually goes for $15,000 per night, but luckily for Obama, it belongs to his former ambassador to Italy, so no doubt the pair will get a deal.

In just his trip back and forth to Italy, for his presentation and his vacation, Barack Obama has emitted more than 16 metric tons of carbon – just shy of what an average American emits in a year. Add to that the motorcade, the internal travel in Italy, and, of course, the villa, and Obama and his wife have easily emitted more carbon in one single week than most Americans will in 2017.

Last week, Obama implored those same Americans – and their compatriots across Europe – to cut down on their carbon emissions in order to draw global warming to a standstill. “When it comes to climate change, the hour is almost upon us,” Obama told the audience at his IIPS keynote. “I do not believe that this planet is condemned to ever-rising temperatures. I believe these are problems that were caused by man and can be solved by man.

He even predicted that such egregious energy consumption to lead to food shortages as Europe struggles to take in refugees from the Middle East. If it were such an imperative, however, perhaps Obama, like other famous environmental activists, should be reconsidering his own personal habits.

  3. I would love to see the Obummers and Leo DiCaprio shuffle off to some deserted island where there is little to no chance of them continuing to enlarge their personal carbon footprints. Oh! How they love to tell us peons how we should live, all the while they do whatever they want to!

  5. He is in the category of “don’t do as I do” people. As if we either could or would want to.

    • Exactly, marble. They put me in mind of the Commies who swept out the Tsar (machine-gunned him and his family to death—“cleared the deck,” so to speak) in the name of spreading the wealth amongst ” the people”…and then, a funny thing happened on the way to socialism/communism…..all the Tsar’s weatlh, as well as anything else not nailed down and all things that already belonged to “the people,” ended up in their pockets for the next 70 years, until the top-heavy “Tsarettes” crashed and burned up in their own fat. No one can tell me they are “surprised” by Obama’s “piece of the pie,” (the one he told all the rest of us that we’d have to make-do with LESS of….b/c it was only “fair.” ) The Clintons and Al Gore schooled him well in this game of “public service.”

      • Did he and Soros study French philosophers and novelists? Albert Camus, “The welfare of humanity is always the alibi of tyrants” and, Voltaire, “If you can make someone believe absurdities, you can make them commit atrocities.” There must be something about French wine or cheese.

  7. Where did mr. & mr. oreo get all this money? soros? What are the oreo’s supposed to do for it? Unless soros didn’t give him all this money he had to have taken it from the tax payers. Or could it be the drug industry he’s involved in.
