Good News: Obama Takes Long Fossil Fueled Flight To Push “Clean Energy”

Nothing says “clean energy” like a long fossil fueled flight, accompanied by other fossil fueled aircraft, followed by multiple trips to and fro in a fossil fueled limo accompanied by 17 or so other fossil fueled vehicles

(Salt Lake Tribune) President Barack Obama will stress the importance of investing in clean-energy technology and training workers for this growing field as part of his remarks at Hill Air Force Base in Utah on Friday, and will use the opportunity in a deep-red state to highlight that supporting such innovations isn’t a partisan issue.

“[Utah] is an example of a state that has made smart investments in clean energy and has yielded great benefits for the economy,” White House press secretary Josh Earnest told The Salt Lake Tribune. “This is something the president has advocated in Washington, D.C., and he has not been able to make much progress, or at least as much progress as we would like, because these are proposals that are opposed by Republicans in Washington even though Republicans in Utah had deployed them to good effect.”

This is all about pushing solar energy. And, of course, climate change. It might be worthwhile if this wasn’t coming from the man with the Largest Carbon Footprint In The World.
