Green Energy Irony: Obama's 22-Vehicle Fossil Fuel Motorcade

Posted By Mike Brownfield On January 27, 2012 @ 3:04 pm In Featured | Comments Disabled

Yesterday, President Barack Obama rolled through Las Vegas to push for federal investment in clean energy vehicles, making his pitch at a UPS plant, escorted by a motorcade of 22 fossil fuel-burning vehicles. We haven’t seen anything this ironic since Al Gore hopped on a private jet [1] to promote his global warming flick “An Inconvenient Truth.”

Kudos to our friends at the Nevada Policy Research Institute [2] who captured the moment on video.
