How did the inauguration ceremony of President Barack Obama square with his environmentalist credentials? Not very well, at least according to Andrew Langer of the Institute For Liberty, who had this to say: “Obama’s inauguration produced an enormous amount of greenhouse gases. The private jets, limos and even horses that were featured produced a total carbon footprint likely exceeding 575 million pounds of CO2 by our estimates – an amount it would take the average U.S. household over 57,000 years to produce. It seems hypocritical for the scores of celebrities, VIPs and political elites to lecture middle America about environmental responsibility and then turn around and produce such emissions!”
