So, if you like your CO2, you can emit your CO2?

Via Daily Caller:

The Obama administration will kick off a massive campaign…to push the president’s agenda to cut carbon dioxide emissions just months ahead of the United Nation’s global warming summit in Paris.

This climate campaign, oddly enough, includes a trip to the Alaskan Arctic by President Barack Obama to “call attention to the effects of global warming,” according to The Washington Post — which was briefed on the administration’s new campaign by an unnamed source prior to its unveiling to the public.

“Power plants are the single biggest source of the harmful carbon pollution that contributes to the climate change,” Obama said in the transcript of a video that was given to The Washington Post. “But until now, there have been no federal limits to the amount of that pollution those plants can dump into the air. Think about that.”

Ironically, Obama’s trip to the Arctic will emit lots of carbon dioxide — the very greenhouse gas he blames for causing catastrophic global warming. Yet as he’s prepared to emits tons to highlight why rising emissions are detrimental to the planet, he’s calling the EPA’s carbon dioxide rules for power plants “the biggest, most important step we’ve ever taken to combat climate change.”

….Based on government data, Obama’s jaunt to the Arctic aboard Air Force One will emit about 354, 585 pounds of carbon dioxide, or about 161 metric tonnes, for just that one leg of the flight. That’s equivalent to what 22 homes emit from burning electricity every year or the annual emissions from driving 33 cars, according to the EPA’s own carbon footprint calculator….

    My prediction – obama will set the agenda for the remainder of his term to coincide with places he hasn’t yet traveled to on our dime.

    Look around the world. America’s power plants are not the gross polluters he makes them out to be. The white cloud billowing from smoke stacks it not smoke, it’s steam from the air inside smoke pipe being heated up to cause that white vapor.

    After jetting around the world on our money, Obama needs a change of climate to rest. Here’s a slide show of the Martha’s Vineyard bungalow that he and family stayed at in previous years. Includes slides of infinity pool and swimming pool. Clearly 99% housing. http://www.washingtonpost.com/realestate/former-obama-vacation-home-is-highest-priced-house-on-marthas-vineyard/2015/07/30/326e6f0e-36e2-11e5-9d0f-7865a67390ee_gallery.html?hpid=z8

    Rules are for you peasants. Not for the hypocritical, naked emperor.

    So Democrats led by Boxer walked out of a Senate Committee hearing yesterday where giving States opt out choice from new EPA rules was being considered. Inhofe actually said that there was civility when working on highway bill, he didn’t know why that didn’t continue. Idiot. Hwy. bill was spending money that Obama requested. This is anti-Obama desire. It’s like Republicans refuse to recognize reality. Anyway, reason for this post is, Sen. Wicker (Miss. Repub.) actually argued for opt out provision by saying that Greenland was green relatively recently. Problem, Greenland wasn’t green. Erik the Red said that to get settlers there around 1000AD. Considering Thad Cochran, I guess that makes Wicker the smart Miss. Senator. Republican messaging; It’s the Best! Not.
