EPA chief spends Earth Week crop dusting country with carbon emissions in desperate attempt to stave off climate change
**Written by Doug Powers
My own pet theory is that “man made climate change” is a redistributionist sham that may one day actually come to fruition because of all the conspiring alarmists flying around warning everybody about it.
Enter EPA chief Gina McCarthy, who is doing her best to turn it into a self-fulfilling prophecy:
A national nonprofit environmental group is turning up the heat on the Environmental Protection Agency for sending its chief on an Earth Day-themed tour to call for action on climate change, arguing the multi-city excursion will hurt the environment.
The Public Employees for Environmental Responsibility says the greenhouse gases generated by EPA administrator Gina McCarthy’s week-long, five-city tour will “far exceed” any concrete action on climate change from her travels.
“Frenetically jetting around the country appears to undercut [the] EPA’s message to ordinary Americans that they should conserve, consume less and reduce transportation pollution,” PEER Executive Director Jeff said in a statement.
The EPA announced last week that McCarthy would visit New York, Boston, Cleveland, Atlanta and Memphis to “participate in various events to…focus on responsible steps to cut carbon pollution to slow the effects of climate change.”
Included among McCarthy’s jet-set planet-saving efforts this week is taking the mound before today’s Yankees/Red Sox game in Boston to throw out what the EPA will proclaim to be the most eco-friendly first pitch in major league history (Al Gore held the record briefly in 1993 but broke wind on the way back to the dugout).
President Obama’s doing his part on Earth Day as well:
No Earth Day observance for Marine One which kept its powerful engines idling about 15 minutes waiting for Pres Obama to board.

Obama will offset that by flying Air Force One to Tokyo today and maybe planting a bonsai tree.
Remember this piece of Earth Day history?
