To celebrate those historic emissions reductions that are crucial if humanity is to be saved, President Obama’s going to torch tens of thousands of gallons of jet fuel and along with it burn millions of taxpayer dollars:

Yep, that’s Air Force One and two other planes:
Fly-time alone will set taxpayers back somewhere in the region of $3.5million as Obama, the First Lady, Sasha and Malia and their two dogs jet off for around two weeks.
Exact figures for the trip – outside of Air Force One – are hard to obtain. According to a Watchdog.com report on the 2014 trip, there is also an Air Force cargo plane to bring Obama’s helicopter and limo, which costs more than $150,000 to get to Hawaii and back.
A second plane brings a Marine Corps contingent at similar cost.
The air feels cleaner already, doesn’t it?
