Obama will burn more than 35,000 gallons of fuel on Earth Day, emitting 375 TONS of carbon dioxide
President took Marine One chopper to Andrews Air Force Base and will fly to Washington state and Tokyo, Japan on Tuesday
'Earth Day is about taking action,' the White House declared shortly after takeoff
Air Force One consumes 5 gallons of jet fuel for every mile it flies

The U.S. Energy Information Administration estimates that burning the fuel emits 21.1 pounds of CO2 per gallon

Total presidential fuel consumption for Earth Day, not including automobile motorcades, is an estimated 35,609 gallons


President Barack Obama is marking the 44th Earth Day with a carbon-emitting extravaganza, spending more than 15 hours on Air Force One and 15 minutes aboard the Marine One helicopter.

Not including his motorcades in Oso, Washington, the site of a recent devastating mudslide, his trip will consume an estimated 35,565 gallons of fuel.

According to the U.S. Energy Information Administration, the statistics arm of the Department of Energy, burning each gallon emits 21.1 pounds of carbon dioxide, bringing the president's Earth Day carbon footprint to more than 375.7 tons.

The White House did not respond to a question about any measures it might be taking – planting trees, for instance – to offset those emissions.

It isn't so much that liberals are ignorant. It's just that they know so many things that aren't so.
