One Private Jet Flight = 1/3th of Recommended ANNUAL Per Capital Carbon Consumption

Here is a good way to measure words versus deeds. Following each candidates' statement about global warming is the amount they spent on private jet travel in just the third quarter of 2019.
"Vice President Joe Biden, who dropped about $924,000 on private air travel …"

"Mayor Pete Buttigieg spent nearly $479,000 on private flights over the past three months"

"Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) used about $253,000 in campaign cash to charter flights"

I'm always amused by people whose carbon footprints are the size of Montana telling the rest of us how urgent it is that we cut ours. As Dr. Glenn Reynolds says, I'll believe global warming is a crisis when the people telling me its a crisis start acting like its a crisis. 

Sometimes, I think the ego and private jet travel, rather than public service, are the main reasons people run for President.

H/T Breitbart from which the quotations came.
