Morano: Democratic candidates keep saying we need to keep fossil fuels in the ground but they can’t stop using them — lavishly — in the air in a private jet. By the way, seven hours in a private jet equals a larger carbon footprint than the average American does all year that’s the extent we’re talking to the hypocrisy here among these top democrats.
Morano: And you know they want to invest in trees and renewable energy but they’re going to need a lot more trees given all the pages of this impeachment they keep finally there. By the way, they can’t send emails because there’s a new study out that you sending a lot of emails is bad for global warming and carbon footprint. So the I think they should do it the old way and just come over and verbally read the 28,000 pages. That’s the only earth-friendly way

Sanders wants to stop profits from fossil fuels
PRIVATE JET SALES ARE SKYROCKETING: As the year winds down, the New York Times reports that the sale of private jets soared 15% in 2019. These planes start at about $3 million and can cost several dozen million more—putting them out of range for all but the best-financed midlife crisis. Just the operating expense of these mini airliners can range from nearly $1 million to about $4 million—or 16-63 times the median American family’s earnings.
“Word is,” Mr. Colbert said, is “that in order to sit for the Senate trial and campaign in Iowa, you’re going to be using private jets at night.”“Well, probably one jet,” Mr. Sanders interjected.
“Multiple rides in a private jet,” Mr. Colbert said.Yes,” Mr. Sanders confirmed.
“Are you going to give rides to the other candidates who are in the Senate?” Mr. Colbert asked.
Mr. Sanders said he’s considered sharing his plane with other senators in the past, but indicated he never followed through with the idea.
“Maybe we can all chip in, get one plane, and come back,” he suggested.
Mr. Sanders‘ comments come after several celebrities have promised to decrease their air travel in order to cut down on their carbon footprint.
During Thursday’s interview, Mr. Sanders said the world must unite to “aggressively tackle climate change and tell the fossil fuel industry that their short-term profits are not more important than the future of our planet.”
