    Pelosi: Global Warming is a woman's issue or Will she now get rid of her Boeing 757



    The Hill reported,

    Speaker of the Duma, Pelosi (D-Calif.)

    addressed the Copenhagen climate
    change conference today, framing climate change as a women’s issue.

    Speaking to a roundtable hosted by the Global Gender and Climate Alliance,
    Pelosi said the U.S. has for too long ignored climate change.

    “For too long, America has failed to lead on climate change,” she said.
    “We have come to Copenhagen to say: ‘Those days are over. America is back.”

    Pelosi said women should be particularly concerned about the
    detrimental effects of climate change.

    “Women have the most to gain and the most to lose in the climate crisis,”
    she said. “The impacts are not gender-neutral; as the primary users,
    managers, and stewards of natural resources, women feel the consequences first.”


    Madame Pelosi's 757

    [​IMG]



    This Jet is the USAF C-32, Boeing 757, which MADAME PELOSI uses


    A retired Pan Am, ex Delta pilot, who is supplementing his meager
    "delta" retirement at the age of 70+ as a simulator instructor in South Florida.
    He does recurrent training for the Air Force pilots that have to fly Pelosi's Jet,
    (see below), he told me last week, that the last Pelosi Pilots he had in
    the Sim told him that they now have to "Salute" her... Pelosi's Jet

    Madame Pelosi wasn't happy with the small jet USAF C-20B, Gulfstream III,
    that comes with the Speaker's job...no, Madame Pelosi was aggravated
    that this little jet had to stop to refuel, so she ordered a Big Fat 200-seat
    USAF C-32, Boeing 757 jet that could get her back to California without stopping!

    Many, many legislators walked by and grinned with glee as Joe
    informed everyone that Nancy's Big Fat Jet costs us, the
    hard working American tax payers, thousands of gallons of fuel every week.
    Since she only works 3 days a week, this gas guzzling jet gets fueled
    and she flies home to California, cost to the taxpayers of about $60,000, one way!
    As Joe put it, 'Unfortunately we have to pay to bring her back on Monday night.'
    Cost to us another $60,000.

    Folks, that is $480,000 per month and that is an annual cost to the
    taxpayers of $5,760,000. No wonder she complains about the cost of this war...
    it might cramp her style and she is styling, on my back and yours.
    I think of the military families in this country doing without and this woman,
    who heads up the most do-nothing Congress in the history of this country,
    keeps fueling that jet while doing nothing.

    Madame Pelosi wants you and me to conserve our carbon footprint.
    She wants us to buy smaller cars and Obama wants us to get a
    bicycle pump and air up our tires.

    If you think this is outrageous, forward it to all those on your email list!
    Keep in mind the figures above do NOT include cost of plane or crew, just fuel!

    One wonders what her total package cost us?

    Since the question is not who asked for it but why does she use it

    and even your article shows that she still DOES use it

    I have to agree with you

    but don't call yourself stupid - have a little pride

    Sure,

    so as a "women" issue, she needs to hurt the "earth" even more to spread the good word?

    My how good of her; to think many would say she is a hypocrite

    She's a public official. She's supposed to mold public opinion. Costs associated with that responsibility are unavoidable.

    Mother Earth has been beat-up and kicked-around for thousands of years; more so in the last hundred. She doesn't mind taking one for the team if it leads to victory.

    Oh of course
    like when the "green" President had his inaugural

    The Obama Inauguration's Carbon Footprint

    Using data from the EPA, environmentalist organizations, and various news accounts, the group estimates more than 500 million pounds of CO2 will be released during the four-day inaugural festivities. Among the offenders:

    The 600 private jets expected to fly visitors to and from the event will produce 25,320,000 pounds of CO2.
    Personal vehicles could account for 262,483,200 pounds of CO2.
    The horses in the parade will produce more than 400 pounds of CO2.


    And if you don't have an idea what a pound of CO2 really means, consider this: The average household would take 57,598 years to produce as much CO2 as Obama's inauguration.


    57,598 years!- well at least Mother Earth knows it is for a good reason
