Yes, Vermont Socialist and likely 2020 Democratic presidential nomination aspirant Sen. Bernie Sanders believes the global warming/climate change/greenhouse gasses problem “poses a catastrophic threat to the long-term longevity of our planet. The transportation sector accounts for about 26 percent of carbon pollution emissions.”
But campaigning for nine Democrats in nine states during the 2018 midterm election was even more important to Bernie than saving the planet, so he rented a private jet to fly to those nine campaign stops, at a cost of more than a quarter of a million dollars., reports Washington Free Beacon’s Brent Scher.
And oh by the way, according to Scher, commercial aviation is a huge source of greenhouse gasses in the atmosphere. Private jets like the one Bernie leased are even worse than airliners because they carry far fewer passengers. No hypocrisy to see here folks, move along.
