Just like Al Gore, Nancy Pelosi is addicted to private jets despite her continued claim that climate change is a crisis.
According to a new report, Pelosi spent over half a million dollars flying the friendly skies on private jets within a little over a years time since late 2020:
– House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has spent over $500,000 on private jets since 2020 despite repeatedly describing climate change as an “existential” threat the U.S. has a “moral” obligation to address.
According to campaign filings with the Federal Election Commission, Pelosi’s campaign paid a Virginia-based private aviation provider, Advanced Aviation Team, over $437,000 between October 2020 and December 2021 and over $65,000 to Clay Lacy Aviation, a California-based private jet provider.
Private jets are notoriously bad for the environment, producing significantly more emissions per passenger than commercial flights. Pelosi’s campaign spent $67,605 on private air travel just months before she said she viewed tackling the climate crisis as a “religious thing.”
“For me, it’s a religious thing,” she said in November after leading a 21-member congressional delegation to the United Nations Climate Change Conference in Glasgow, Scotland. “I believe this is God’s creation, and we have a moral obligation to be good stewards.”
Pelosi came under fire in September after she claimed climate change was even more of a priority to discuss with China than its multitude of human rights abuses.
“Climate is an overriding issue, and China is a leading emitter in the world,” she said at the time.
So much for a ‘moral obligation to be good stewards’. Pelosi could easily fly commercial airlines like everyone else or ride a bus around her city campaigning. But all that goes out the window because she doesn’t really believe the crap she’s selling.
It’s just like all these leaders who force everyone to wear masks but when the cameras aren’t running, they’re not wearing masks. Nothing but elitist hypocrites.
