While Washington  Democrats are busy crafting ways to spend billions upon billions of tax dollars in the name of climate change the Institute for Liberty has helpfully calculated Barack Obama's massive, inaugural carbon footprint.

Their analysis finds:
  • Celebrities, politicians, and bigwigs using 600 private jets will produce 25,320,000 POUNDS of CO2
  • Personal vehicles could account for 262,483,200 POUNDS of CO2
  • In the parade, horses alone will produce more than 400 POUNDS of CO2
  • The total carbon footprint for the Inauguration will likely exceed 575 million POUNDS of CO2
  • It would take the average U.S. household 57,598 years to produce a carbon footprint equal to that of the new president’s housewarming party
