Charlie Crist a sure thing to win this month’s Albert Gore Jr. Global Warming Mega-Hypocrite award

This is one of the funniest opening sentences to a news story not about Al Gore that I’ve read in a good while (via Weasel Zippers):

Democrat Charlie Crist flew to an environmental press event Thursday on the private jet of a developer fined for pollution.

Almost as soon Crist stepped off the 2005 Cessna 560XL, Gov. Rick Scott’s campaign had photographed its tail number and traced its ownership to developer James Finch, whose company Phoenix Construction was fined at least twice for violating environmental rules (more here, here and here).

Scott’s campaign quickly informed reporters awaiting Crist at his press conference concerning climate change.

According to Crist, he had to take a private jet:

Crist, not commenting about the irony of flying to an environmental press conference on the plane of someone busted for violating environmental rules, partly blamed his troubles on the remoteness and difficulty of traveling to Tallahassee.

Because everybody knows the only other way Tallahassee is accessible is with a pack mule and a team of Sherpas:

While we’re on the subject of global warming alarmist Democrats and jet travel:

Last summer, Sen. Mark Warner, D-Va., embarked on what his office trumpeted as a four-day, 1,000-mile trip across his state, with press releases noting he “woke up early to hit the road,” making stops at a minor league ballpark, a craft brewery and a Roanoke rail yard, among others.

But for several hundred of those miles, Warner was not hitting the road — he was flying a chartered plane at a cost to taxpayers of $8,500.

Warner was one of two dozen U.S. senators who flew taxpayer-funded charter airplanes to, from or around their home state last year at a total cost of just under $1 million, according to a USA TODAY analysis of Senate spending records compiled by the nonpartisan Sunlight Foundation.
