President Biden has claimed that fossil fuel emissions contributing to climate change are “the number one threat facing humanity.” That is, unless those emissions are caused by somebody en route to meetings about addressing climate change:

There are said to be 85(!) vehicles in the president's motorcade here in Rome, in part because of Italian covid restrictions on the number of people who can be in a vehicle at once. https://t.co/w07Msdz92I

How’s this for an eco-friendly motorcade:

We’re guessing Biden will claim that the emissions from that motorcade are the same as what his $3.5 trillion plan would cost: Zero.
Really, why is there a need for 85 vehicles? How many were flown over from the US. https://t.co/3GrYU5Q2y3

Can you already feel the planet cooling?
They fly in most of those cars too.

Couple that with Air Force One and the other jets used on the trip and “man-made climate change” is a self-fulfilling prophecy.
That's some carbon footprint there.

Nothing says protect the climate and save the world than an 85 car motorcade (including SUVs)

85 gas guzzling vehicles.
Flown there for no purpose. Just a vanity visit.

If these people were serious about what they say is an “existential threat” they could have just had the meetings on Zoom.

But can it be driven across the entire country on a single tank of electricity?
