It ain't easy being green, and in the case of Barack Obama's inaugural, it seems like he's not even trying to green it up. According to the Institute for Liberty, the Obamathon in Washington will produce about 575 million pounds of CO2 emissions.

In a study titled Carbon Bigfoot, the IFL concludes that the CO2 glut will be substantial. From the global warming wrecking celebs flying all over the place in their many private jets, to the many hundreds if not thousands of vehicles that will be used to get people to and in the midst of the inaugural, the CO2 carnage is at the amazingly high level.

The IFL finds:

* Celebrities, politicians, and bigwigs using 600 private jets will produce 25,320,000 POUNDS of CO2
* Personal vehicles could account for 262,483,200 POUNDS of CO2
* n the parade, horses alone will produce more than 400 POUNDS of CO2

The IFL also came up with a revealing illustration about what this all means.

It would take the average U.S. household 57,598 years to produce a carbon footprint equal to that of the new president’s housewarming party

I am incensed that he has not told everyone to just stay home. Incensed I tell you.

And Steve Smith should also be ashamed. He ponied up $25,000 for a local marching band can bring at least 3 charter buses and contribute to the carnage. He is unAmerican


You are one of the 15 percent who thinks Steve Smith is a nice person.

No - I'm actually in the 25% who don't care whether he's nice or not as long as he gets the job done (and stays out of trouble with the law).


You are one of the 15% who sneakily ups the ante to 25%, thinking no one will catch on to your little ruse.

You are one of the 15% who think that Sigmund and his brothers Burp & Slurp are cooler than H.R. Pufnstuf and his sidekick Jimmy.
