Aren't liberals the ones who are sooo concerned about the environment? Quotes and pic taken from several blogs and news sites....
"Inaugural revelers are lucky they didn't get fined for littering. As crowds cleared the city Tuesday, their trash covered the National Mall and Washington Monument grounds after President Barack Obama's inauguration.
They left behind plastic bottles, newspapers, food wrappers, gloves and even American flags they had been waving. Trash bins overflowed with items people tossed."
"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"
