Look ... It's Man Bear Pig!

Our global warming moment of the morning comes via Hotair. God Bless them. The LA Times ran a story on how the Greenanator in Caleefoneeia preaches global warming awareness ... BUT ... he doesn't practice it.

The governor's Gulfstream jet does nearly as much damage to the environment in one hour as a small car does in a year, according to figures compiled by the Helium Report, an online publication for buyers of luxury items.Administration officials say Schwarzenegger is well aware of this and makes amends by purchasing pollution credits for the carbon dioxide his jet releases. The credits fund efforts worldwide to reduce greenhouse gases, such as projects that harness energy from wind, landfill gas and farm waste, although they don't eliminate the pollution from Schwarzenegger's plane. Flying the Gulfstream and other jets the governor uses costs as much as $10,000 an hour. Some conservationists say Schwarzenegger is essentially attempting to buy a clean conscience with the carbon offsets, which cost about $43 an hour.

The Hotair ... points us to this video by the US Chamber Of Commerce.
