When they start acting like they believe it's a crisis, I'll consider changing my mind

Seems as if the biggest panicmongers in the global warming cabal -- I'm looking at you, Al Gore -- never seem to live their lives with anything even approaching the carbon-creating restraint they constantly urge upon us. Well, add serial liar Hillary Clinton to that list:
Just hours after Hillary Clinton unveiled her presidential campaign's push to solve global warming through an aggressive carbon-cutting plan, she sauntered up the steps of a 19-seat private jet in Des Moines, Iowa.
The aircraft, a Dassault model Falcon 900B, burns 347 gallons of fuel per hour. And like all Dassault business jets, Hillary's ride was made in France.
The Trump-esque transportation costs $5,850 per hour to rent, according to the website of Executive Fliteways, the company that owns it.
The Clinton campaign's traveling press secretary, Nick Merrill, did not respond to a request for comment.
I'm not sure how this square's with Mrs. Clinton's newfound belief in global warming, but it is typical of the alarmists. More than 1,700 private jets flew a bunch of pretentious warming alarmists -- of the moneyed variety, of course, including Al Gore to Davos, Switzerland this past January to discuss, among other things -- you guessed it -- global warming:
The influx of private jets is so great, the Swiss Armed Forces has been forced to open up a military air base for the first time ever to absorb all the super rich flying their private jets into the event, reports Newsweek.
“Decision-makers meeting in Davos must focus on ways to reduce climate risk while building more efficient, cleaner, and lower-carbon economies,” former Mexican president Felipe Calderon told USA Today.
Gore famously routinely flies in  a private jets as he bops around the world trying to convince the little people to cut back on their energy use. Mrs. Clinton apparently learned everything she knows about global warming from Al (which means, of course, not much), and it shows:
But Mrs. Clinton said Monday in Des Moines that 'the reality of climate change is unforgiving – no matter what the deniers say. Sea levels are rising. Ice caps are melting. Storms, wildfires, and extreme weather are wreaking havoc.'
'This is one of the most urgent threats of our time, and we have no choice but to rise and meet it,' she added.
If she thinks it's so damn urgent, maybe she should act like it. The fact that she doesn't tells me she doesn't even believe her own horseshit. Why should I?
