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

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



    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.
    We’re tempted to suggest a conspiracy here — but it’s just liberals agreeing yet again that conservatives have hidden, evil motives, because modern liberals simply can’t conceive of any other reason to disagree with the liberal consensus.

    You know, if ONE of these guys were to show they're making a strong effort to make their own carbon footprint ZERO - I'd listen.

    If Obama lived in a house and lived a life that demonstrated he believes what he says - I'd listen.

    But it's like listening to health advice from a chain-smoking overweight doctor - I don't care how true it is, it's hard to listen from someone who clearly doesn't BELIEVE it.

    But he's not lecturing us before doing that, not being a total hypocrite like Obama and Gore, which is the OP's point.

    Look up Ed Begley jr., he's one of the few to "walk the walk". If he has to travel he takes his bike with him, lives in a house that that's more trouble than it's worth with the envirogadgets.

    He can afford it, he believes it, and he lives it. I applaud him for that.

    Doesn't change the scam of man-made Global Cooling-Warming-Changing, but I applaud him for living his convictions.
    There are only two possibilities; one is that we are alone in the universe, the other is that we are not.
    Both are terrifying.
