Following up on yesterday’s post regarding Obama ordering the Central Government to reduce its carbon footprint, we get from the official White House website

Leading by Example on Climate Change: Our New Federal Sustainability Plan

Late last year, in an historic joint announcement with China, President Obama set an ambitious goal for reducing the greenhouse gas emissions driving climate change – a clear sign that the United States’ commitment to leadership on climate change at home and abroad is stronger than ever.

In the latest effort to continue that push, this morning, President Obama signed an executive order that will help us stay on track to meet the new target pledged in China and ensure that the federal government leads by example as the United States moves boldly to reduce greenhouse gas emissions while boosting clean energy. This new sustainability plan for the next decade directs federal agencies to cut their greenhouse gas emissions by 40 percent by 2025. That means big cuts to the dangerous emissions driving climate change – and also big savings. In addition to 21 million metric tons of emission reductions – the same as taking 4.2 million cars of the road for a year — achieving this goal will save taxpayers up to $18 billion in avoided energy costs between 2008 and 2025.

This is written by Dr. Ernest Moniz, the Secretary of Energy. Can you guess what is missing? That’s right, any notion of Obama “leading by example”. In fact

That was right after his announcement of the CO2 reduction plan. It’s a mere 1.4 miles by road from the DOE to the White House, less if you cut across the National Mall. He could have walked, biked, took a Segway. Instead, a fossil fueled limo, with the accompanying chase vehicles.

    We understand that nothing would give the far-right a boner more than to see the President assassinated, but the nation is still obligated to protect him, and sometimes this means a protective vehicle.

    With the violent far-right sovereign citizens running amuck, we can’t be too careful.

    aids will get him sooner or later

    Another classy comment from a resident swine. And also more projection. Just because “Dessert” enjoys “smoking a joint” now and then, doesn’t mean everyone does.

    100% of scientists agree that if man-made global warming were real, “the last people we’d want to help us is the Obama administration”

    dp,

    100% of scientists agree that if man-made global warming were real, “the last people we’d want to help us is the Obama administration”

    97% of scientists agree that conservatives and 3% of scientists are cementheads.
