Here’s an environmental impact story you’re not likely to see in the mainstream media. Neither NBC’s chief environmental affair correspondent Anne Thompson, nor ABC correspondent Bill Blakemore nor CBS “60 Minutes” correspondent Scott Pelley – all of whom have been eager over the years to expose so-called crimes against the environment – have rushed to report on the massive carbon footprint of the Obama inauguration.

But a comprehensive new study by The Institute for Liberty (IFL) took an in-depth look at each component of the Jan. 20 inauguration in Washington, D.C., and estimated that 575 million pounds of carbon dioxide will be emitted in the atmosphere for the inauguration – which is roughly equal to what the average American household would produce in 57,598 years.

Andrew Langer, the president of IFL, told the Business & Media Institute the hypocrisy of the event having that large an environmental impact, especially in light of Obama’s cabinet picks, who have taken strong stands promoting the case that manmade global warming is a real threat to civilization. Even Secretary of State Designate Hillary Clinton characterized climate change as a national “security threat.”
