Man With World’s Largest Carbon Footprint Is Supposedly Refocusing On Climate Change

I’m not sure why the Washington Post’s Juliet Eilperin is so excited about this: Obama pivot’s do not last very long

The satellite images viewed by President Obama before a meeting with eight Western governors were stark, showing how snowpack in California’s mountains had shrunk by 86 percent in a single year.

“It was a ‘Houston, we have a problem’ moment,” recalled White House counselor John D. Podesta, one of two aides who briefed the president that February day. Obama mentioned the images several times as he warned the governors that political leaders had no choice but to cope with global warming’s impact.

Yeah, how about the massive, and in many cases, record breaking, snow throughout the heartland to the east coast?

After years of putting other policy priorities first — and dismaying many liberal allies in the process — Obama is now getting into the weeds on climate change and considers it one of the key components of his legacy, according to aides and advisers.

So his legacy will be one of causing the energy costs of Americans to artificially increase, meaning the price of everything else will rise?

And while he routinely brings up climate change in closed-door meetings with world leaders, according to his aides, he also discusses it in his private life, talking about global warming’s implications with his teenage daughters.

“This is really real for him, in terms of what he’s leaving,” said Cecilia Muñoz, who directs the White House Domestic Policy Council and has helped coordinate federal investment in climate-resilient infrastructure projects. “This is personal for him.”

Is this a White House press release, Juliet? Anyhow, let’s not forget that Obama is a serial climahypocrite, casually jetting off around the country for brief speeches followed my lots of fundraising appearances. This is a guy who sent his dog on a separate vacation flight. Whose family routinely takes separate fossil fueled flights for vacations. Who heads off to play golf on a constant basis in large fossil fueled motorcades. Who had to be shamed to put the solar panels (which are mostly superficial and ornamental) back on the roof of the White House. Obama’s carbon footprint is calculated to be around 41,000 metric tons. The average CF for American citizens is a bit over 19 metric tons. Another do as I say not as I do liberal.

  1. […] Obama, or as William Teach calls him, the man with the world’s largest carbon footprint, is going to pivot back to climate change. I guess he really does believe that the economy is doing […]
