At least acknowledging the truth and USUALLY abiding by it is something. Many politicians flat out lie all the time. Even when called out on it they ignore the truth or double down on the lies with more lies. When shown the truth they ignore it. This has spread from the politicians to their followers. Not supporters....followers. With blind allegiance they repeat whatever falsehood their leaders spew. It’s a cult like mentality.

I believe you are reading something into the meme which is not there. It's called hypocrisy towards their own beliefs and agenda that they push rather than an admittance by the meme maker.

“Hypocrisy” lights up our political pre-frontal cortexes, but it is a pretty dumb way of looking at this issue.

Every living human being makes an impact on the environment — some more than others — but only one party is trying to do something about that.

Private jets are a flagrant waste and should be taxed rather than handed tax breaks as they currently are. That said, Bernie Sanders has also been a notable user of public transport on the campaign trail. But between his Senate duties during Impeachment and crunch-time in Iowa I could see him needing a plane right now.

Thanks for the backhanded insult oh eternal meme genius. Party and politics has nothing to do with it and will never solve so called global warming where the governing want to confiscate money from the governed in order to create some solution. It's the thousands of corporations who invest in social responsibility that have and will continue to make the impact. Just like nothing will happen to cut emissions in India and China til the money drivers, meaning the businesses, put controls in place.

Corporations love to tout their environmental credentials but most of them are just doing it for the good PR. That’s a practice called “greenwashing.”

I welcome all the private innovation that is being channeled toward this issue, but greenhouse gases continue to rise every single year. I would love it if innovation spontaneously solved this problem but it’s not something we should count on.

At a bare minimum, we need to eliminate the tax breaks for coal and other dirty energy sources that distort the market in favor of pollution. As well as tax breaks for private jets, etc., which I already mentioned above.

If we could implement a greenhouse gas tax that correctly priced air pollution (a solution favored by Milton Friedman, considered a staunchly conservative economist), so the market could figure it out and adjust, then that would help a lot too.

Take some of these steps, and we could get this climate issue solved without having to outright ban anything.

An act of hypocrisy does not validate any "underlying science". However, it is the same as claiming adultery is a sin or a crime while carrying on an extramarital affair.

bernie sanders isn't judging you for using fossil fuels. he's judging the fossil fuel industry for taking advantage of you.

It's not that we hate jets. It's that democratic candidates SAY they want to do stuff for the environment, but they act in such a carbon-intensive manner.

Who cares who flies in jets, so long as they don't say that carbon-intensive travel should be elimated

I don’t fully agree but have my upvote anyway because it is music to my ears to hear conservatives use phrases like “carbon-intensive travel”

We can agree to disagree on conduct of specific individuals

I don’t think you know what any of those terms mean

“Whataboutism” can’t be invoked to block any comparisons whatsoever. It is only an apt concept to invoke when you’re comparing apples and oranges.

The classic example (and where the term originated) is when Putin vaguely compares U.S. “human rights abuses” to his own country’s far worse abuses in order to muddy the waters and confuse people.

In this case, I’ve directly compared Sanders’ private jet usage during a busy campaign season and impeachment week with Trump’s use of Air Force One for, basically, holiday travel, and that is an apt comparison

And yeah... as usual... point out exactly where I “lied” or STFU

You keep trying to think. I've established you can't think for yourself.

Whataboutism is involved when weak liberals can't defend the

Where in the Meme does it mention Putin? You're deflecting to prop up your weak Whataboutism argument.

I counter your weak Whataboutism argument with my stronger Whataboutism when Obama flew Eggrolls from a Chinese restaurant in Chicago to Hawaii for a party.
Or Alexandria Occasional Cortex flying back and forth from DC to NY, Instead of riding the train with the peons.Both are true stories.
You weren't told to be outraged, Bolstering my claim you can't think for yourself.

So Trump is the only President to use of Air Force One for, basically, holiday travel. Got it. Obama must have walked to Kenya.
There goes your Buuuuut Truuuump Whataboutism narrative.

Did I say you lied on this Meme? You're awfully defensive for someone claiming to be innocent of lying. I wonder why... LMAO

Poor KylieClown, You just can't STFU

I had a reply typed out before you deleted and re-posted this.

I’ll just assume everything you say is true — I know the Kenya thing is.

All this shows is that there is “climate hypocrisy” on both sides. Which is pretty much exactly the point I already made by bringing Trump into this, and is why this isn’t a great way of looking at the problem.

The better way to look at the problem is to consider which party actually acknowledges the problem and is trying to do something about it.

And anyway, Sanders and Warren right now are probably the least hypocritical users of private jets in the country given their work week. Which is what the OP meme here said, and it’s dumb.

My comment was the same, I added the part with Alexandria Occasional Cortex.
Your ridiculous reply wouldn't have needed to be changed.

There is no climate hypocrisy. It's a hoax to terrify weak minded fools into believing the sky is falling.

You brought Trump into the discussion because you can't defend Sanders and Warren. Fact!
Whataboutism isn't a excuse.

One party is pushing the hoax, That party thrives on creating fear. It thrives on convincing gullible fools like you into believing the sky is falling, Brainwashing you into believing raising taxes will solve everything. When their hoax clock expires, Like it has every decade, That party changes the name of the hoax and resets the clock.

Name one time in history money from taxes was ever used for its intended purpose. It'll work this time though, A Bartender and other climate hoax pushers told you so.

And Anyway, Sanders and Warren are the most hypocritical, Flying on private jets to lie to gullible voters, Considering the imaginary doomsday clock is supposed to be ticking.

Is your imaginary climate change clock on pause because of the upcoming election? It's either a hoax or you don't care that Democrats are causing climate change.

The OP meme is dumb, According to your biased opinion. It's on page 1 and was smart enough to trigger you. Here you are. :P

Where's your dumb meme? I know ... It's on the back page in the liberal safe space part of this site.

Keep struggling Kylieclown.
