The hypocrisy of those flying around in private jets telling the rest of us to deal with the unreliable aspect of green energy has reached new heights.
On Thursday, The Gateway Pundit reported the following:
Instead of installing windmills and solar panels for someone so concerned about global warming, former President Barack Obama has ordered the installation of three massive propane gas tanks, two sized at 1,000 gallons and another one at 500 gallons, at his Martha’s Vineyard estate which sits along the “rising” seashore.
According to a report from The Martha’s Vineyard Times, the office of the select board of Edgartown, Massachusetts approved an application for a 2,500-gallon commercial propane tank for 79 Turkeyland Cove Road in Katama, a property owned by former President Barack Obama and Michelle Obama.
These three propane tanks were to be installed above ground on the Obamas’ property, in contrast with the initial report that it will be buried.
The fact that the tanks will be above ground amazes me, but I can’t imagine a Massachusetts Board of Selectmen turning down any request from former President Obama.
The article notes:
Propane is a fossil fuel and is listed as an approved clean alternative fuel under the Clean Air Act of 1990.
“You might be surprised to know that propane, made when methane is purified for commercial use, takes its place on the carbon continuum close to the renewables, which is why the EPA has designated propane a clean energy alternative and why propane is designated a clean energy alternative under the Energy Policy Act of 1992,” FS company stated.
In 2016, Barack Obama tweeted that “renewable energy installations are beating fossil fuel installations for the first time.”
Energy for me, but not for thee.
