Bernie Sander, Climate Hawk, Spends Nearly $300,000 On Private Jet Travel In Month

Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders's re-election campaign spent just under $300,000 on private jet use in October, Federal Election Commission (FEC) records show. The Sanders campaign, which is funded primarily by small-dollar donors, paid Apollo Jets $297,685.50 on Oct. 10, FEC records reveal. The payment was marked for "transportation."

"This expense was for transportation for the senator's 9-day, 9-state tour to support Democratic candidates up and down the ballot ahead of Election Day," campaign spokeswoman Arianna Jones told local website VtDigger.com, which first reported on the jet expenses.

"This cost covered the entirety of the tour from Indiana, Michigan, Wisconsin, Iowa, South Carolina, Colorado, Nevada, Arizona, California, and back to Vermont," Jones said. Sanders's private jet use comes despite the senator's hard-line stance on climate change, which he has consistently called "the single greatest threat facing our planet."

Bernie Sanders

@BernieSanders
Climate change is the single greatest threat facing our planet. On Nov 6th, we must show up at the polls from coast to coast and stand with candidates who are willing and ready to accelerate our transition to clean energy, and finally put people before the profits of polluters.

Because flying generates significantly more greenhouse gases than driving, climate hawks generally advocate against taking unnecessary flights.

"The campaign purchased carbon offsets from NativeEnergy to support renewable energy projects and invest in carbon reduction projects to balance out the emissions produced on the trip," Jones told The Daily Caller News Foundation. Carbon offsets in theory allow polluters to cancel out their emissions by funding projects aimed at reducing emissions. (RELATED: Bernie Sanders Doesn't 'Recall' Flip-Flopping Government Shutdown)

The same day his campaign cut a check to the private jet company, Sanders called climate change a "planetary crisis."

I was told by an environmentalist that if you fly on a commercial jet, thatís equivalent to like 30,000 styrofoam cups. Miss one flight and you donít need to count cups.

I wonder how many styrofoam cups Bernie has used.

I'm sure his side would say the flights were necessary for him to campaign in nine states in nine days, no? And anyone with that much precious wisdom to spread, like fertilizer across acreage, needs to fire up a flying crop duster to do it in. "Small price to pay for doing the right thing", etc.

Sounds like that environmentalist should consider cutting down on his methane gas emissions, for the numbers he's most likely pulling out of his ass.

Socialists have perfected the art of spending the money of others to a science.

Ol' Bernie's got a ticket to ride and he don't care. Just another hoax perpetrated on the American people by a B.S. Artist with too much time and money on his hands.

As I said on FB, Sander is Al Gore's brother from another mother. They both have the idea that their lifestyles don't affect their pet project but we must live in caves and walk barefoot everywhere.

Which is why Al Gore started up the concept, to create a new cash cow from this manmade global warming scheme.

Last night on Tucker Carlson one of Bernie’s former aides was on and he asked her about this. She said that it didn’t matter if an individual flew a private jet or a hummer or had a huge house, etc. She wants to stick it to the large corps and make them go green and pay for the renewable energy and it was up to them to make the change. So that is why all the hypocrites like Bernie and Leo DeCaprio and Algore can use 4 times as much energy as us little people. Cuz it’s really not their responsibility to do anything to reduce their carbon footprint. It's their responsibility to preach to us! Sheesh.
