Global warming alarmist Bernie Sanders is flying around the country on private planes

January 18, 2016

Bernie Sanders Democratic Presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders is perhaps the leading voice on global warming out of all the candidates who are running for President, so much so that during one debate which was focused on foreign policy he lamented the fact that there was not a mention of global warming. Of course he is one of those people who have tried to link global warming to national security so I suppose he thought talking about global warming during a foreign policy debate was justified.

  Unlike other leading voices in the global warming movement, such as Al Gore, Bernie Sanders has more or less tried to live up to some of the expectations he has for others on this issue: Unlike the aforementioned Al Gore, Bernie Sanders has flown coach on commercial airplanes most of the time, however something interesting has happened now that his Presidential aspirations have grown and his candidacy has taken on a legitimacy in the Democratic party.

  He, and his campaign staff, have grown fond of taking private planes around the country. When he was asked to justify this he had something interesting to say. Here is more:

The Vermont senator, who is running for president on a populist message and often speaks passionately about environmental issues, was for months regularly seen flying in coach class on commercial flights.

There is even a community of photos on Twitter, under the hashtag #SandersOnAPlane, where fans have posted photos after seeing him fly. There will likely be fewer photos of a luggage-wielding Sanders moving forward.

This holiday season, Sanders changed his routine and flew almost exclusively on private chartered planes with members of his traveling staff — taking at least four trips.

ABC News asked Sanders about whether the extremely high per-person carbon footprint of private planes was consistent with his staunch environmental policies. Sanders often talks about the need for “bold” action on climate change and even criticized the recent international Paris Accord for not going far enough to curb carbon emissions.

“The carbon footprint? As opposed to what?” the 74-year-old Senator said recently. “We are trying to get around Iowa and get around the country as best we can. So we have a lot of people to see and that is the best way can do it.”

  Carbon footprint? What carbon footprint? That was gist of his answer. Suddenly his campaign is surging and he now appears to be putting his personal goals ahead of saving the planet or national security. Bernie Sanders now feels as if he has a real chance to wrest the nomination away from Hillary Clinton and so his carbon footprint has taken a back seat to seeing as many people as he can on the campaign trail, even if that means hurting the environment he was previously trying to save.

 Funny how that works, isn’t it? Bernie Sanders is now nothing more than another global warming hypocrite. Not to mention he is now living the 1%er lifestyle he has been railing against for months…

    Most are clueless as to what the Bern is all about. A true Marxist, and I will not do one post to expose the man for the Commie he truly is. Let the lemmings come close to the cliff, bumping off Hilary and then let us all be surprised together.

      Even if they did find out he is a commie do you think it would stop them from voting for him? I am not sure…

        Not most, but enough I think to finish him. At least that is my hope. But then again, they are ready for fauxahontas. You might be right.

    I think they are immune to what the rest of us have to deal with….telling the liberals anything about him would be futile, Steve. He is what he is and I cannot imagine they would not know it, but he talks a good game…he is a “grandfather” image, so he must be innocent and can be trusted….all we had to do is look back at his past and she that he might even be more dangerous than Hillary Clinton if we can imagine that! After seeing bits and pieces of the debate of theirs the other night, I have to wonder how anyone could vote for any of the 3….how in the dark does one have to be to want to cast a vote in that direction?

      I think he is most likely more dangerous than Hillary Clinton. I did not see any of the debate but I wonder if these people are in the dark about them of if the indoctrination has finally paid off to the point where our youth are now borderline communists.
