    You can't make this stuff up, just shows you how clueless these two are....

    Obama Earth Day - Carbon Footprint of Air Force One - Wall Street Speech at Cooper Union | NYCAviation.com | Planespotting and Aviation Photography, Breaking Airline News, Aviation Discussion

    On a day when many Americans will be reflecting upon how they can reduce their impact on the environment, President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden will board separate jets in Washington on Earth Day morning to fly 250 miles up the east coast to New York, where they will land at separate airports to attend separate events within a few miles of each other.

    Somebody should have reminded our VP about Amtrak and how it leaves less of a carbon footprint....

    Obama and Biden should make the 250 mile trips in Smart cars

    ... as punishment for being stupid.

    Just kidding ... :p

    And your problem with this is what, exactly? Presidents and vice presidents never travel in the same plane, train or automobile for the most part. Never have and never will.

    Perhaps you want Nancy Pelosi to become president?

    It's stupid and detached from reality. They should really have known better. Bizarrely absurd.

    Hello EARTH DAY, do you know what happens when either one of these planes are in the air over NYC, let alone both of them, every other flight in the air going to either JFK, LGA, or EWR must circle the city for an hour, so not only are they burning the fuel of these 2 jumbo jets (plus the 2 c-4 cargo planes that proceed them), but they are going to do it TWICE!!!

    I could care less where these two bozos go and how, but just don't ask me to conserve ANYTHING when they pull stunts like this!!!!

    Actually ... every time Obama or Biden travel anywhere they have a huge carbon footprint. Their plane, the military jets that shadow it, the caravan.

    On the surface it does seem to suck ... but no person should be imprisoned at the White House ... they deserve free movement personally and as figureheads of the country.

    Just for symbolic purposes, it would be nice if they did something to reflect on Earth Day ... but It's What It's.

    The "issue" here isn't how they travel. The only valid question is whether they needed to be attending events in NYC, rather than in DC -- and if they could have "teleconferenced" in to 1 of the events, perhaps, or something else along those lines, in an effort to show the kind of alternative they probably advocate.

    I've got an SUV and a Pick Up Truck, I just started them up and I'm going to let them run all night.

    I just had a bowel movement in my yard the way they do in Africa, I told my wife when I die to throw me in a river the way they do down in South America.

    I used 45 pieces of toilet paper.

    They seem to thrive on do as I say, not as I do.

    I'm only talking about "Earth Day"...not every time they leave DC!
    They should have just picked today to symbolically stay home and install new light bulbs or something. Maybe go to a Chevy dealer and check out a Volt...anythiing but what they did. It looks bad and it is stupid...TWICE!

    The fire trucks on standby at helipad, Andrews, and the two airports...the police blocking traffic from the cross streets...the cars idling at the closed intersections to add on.


    What better way to celebrate Earth Day than to do more harm to it in the name of saving it :rolleyes:
