During his climate change speech today, President Obama pathetically attempted to score a cheap laugh at skeptics’ expense by suggesting that people who don’t subscribe to his views are members of the Flat Earth Society. Unfortunately for him, the funniest moments of his speech came at his own expense. His incessant droning on the perils of climate change was periodically drowned out by the sound of jets overhead — jets powered by fossil fuels.
In DC, midday jet noise across Georgetown University air space creates major rumbles in audio as Obama speaks about climate change.

Obama talks about US reduction of CO2 emissions and is drowned out by jets from DCA flying overhead #ObamaAtGU

Sweet, sweet irony:
Was that a carbon-spewing jet airplane loudly interrupting Obama's climate speech?

Apparently the Jet over Pres Obama's head downing out this speech disagrees with Obama's war on coal.

Irony: Jet flies over Obama's speech on climate change.

The irony of fossil-fuel powered jets constantly passing over Obama's climate change speech is not lost on me.

The jets that just flew over Obama are fueled by…

You can hear jet noise during Obama's speech. Is that a wind-powered jet, Mr. President?

I think its hilarious & ironic, that during Obama’s speech on the climate, all we can hear are giant jet liners flying over his podium…

Also worth noting:
Hypocrisy. After his climate change speech today, Obama will burn 10 hours of jet fuel going to Africa tomorrow.

Do as he says, not as he does.
