    Obama Warns of Gas Guzzling Cars in Town Hall Meeting
    Tue Aug 15 2006 21:47:08 ET

    Illinois Senator Barack Obama warns citizens at his 50th Town Hall meeting about gas guzzling, WPSD-TV reports.

    It was among many points made to the standing room only audience at the Metropolis Community Center. Obama spoke on everything from DC politics to global warming.

    He says part of the blame for the world's higher temperatures rests on gas guzzling vehicles. Obama says consumers can make the difference by switching to higher mileage hybrids.

    Today the Senator said, "It would save more energy, do more for the environment and create better world security than all the drilling we could do in Alaska."

    "After the meeting... Obama left in a GMC Envoy after admitting to favoring SUV's himself," claimed local News Channel 6.

    MORE

    Tommy Vietor, Senator Obama's press secretary, explains: "What Senator Obama has long advocated is the use of vehicles that are more fuel efficient, including but not exclusively hybrids.

    "The vehicle senator obama travels in while in illinois is a Flexible Fuel Vehicle (FFV), which can run on e85, a blended fuel made of 85 percent ethanol.

    "So he in fact was practicing what he preached at the town hall meeting in Metropolis yesterday when he said we must drive fewer gas-guzzling vehicles."

    But it does not appear that GMC's Envoy is E85 ready.

    Looks like no politician practices what they preach. But in their defense, I would imagine that someone of such importance would ride in an armored vehicle, which are almost soley large SUV's.

    Barack Osama is a typical "do as I say and not as I do" liberal

    He will play the race card like McKinney soon.

    Yeah global warming is such a problem. which is why the worlds tempatures were hotter 70 years ago then today.

    Im tired of these red herring political issues. The reason Democrats favor "global warming" Because regardless what happens they can still claim its a problem. If it gets warmer its global warming. If it gets colder then wow global warming is causing the next ice age.

    Its just an excuse to attack capitalism in favor of communist idealogy.

    I saw RFK Jr on Fox talking to Hannity. RFK Jr actually said global warming will cause the next ice age.

    Hannity nailed him when he would not answer if he travels in a private limo and fly around the world on a private jet

    So Hannity is only able to attack the messanger and not the message.

    I assume you're referring to atmospheric temperatures.

    The only temperatures we should worry about are in the oceans. Specifically the currents that carrry warm water from the equator regions to Europe. As we melt down our glaciers, the warm water currents will not carry the heated water as far north, causing major drops in temperature all over the globe.

    Please educate yourself on how an ice age is caused, before making assumptions based on "common sense".

    I'll give you a summary:

    Hole in ozone leads to increased temps trapped under greenhouse effect. Air heats up and we all sweat a little more. Ice melts and cools down ocean. Currents carrying warm water to countries like great Britain are blocked by colder water. Great Britain cannot warm up like it used to. Temps fall on average of 10 degrees world wide, meaning that some areas are not affected that much, which others become uninhabitable.
