Joe Biden is currently in Rome to attend the G20 summit and there will be a heavy focus on climate change.
So naturally, he had to tour the city in a motorcade of almost 100 vehicles.
That’s a pretty hefty carbon footprint, isn’t it?
The New York Post reported:
Biden tours Rome with 85-vehicle motorcade ahead of ‘climate’ summit
President Biden on Friday cruised through Rome with an 85-vehicle motorcade — drawing criticism for the poor optics ahead of a global warming summit in Glasgow, Scotland, to which Biden is bringing about a dozen top US officials.
“Biden arriving at the Vatican. His motorcade is lonnnnnng,” tweeted Washington Post reporter Chico Harlan, along with a video of the procession.
“#Decarbonize this,” one person captioned the video.
“America’s Marie Antoinette class is Washington’s elites – and that shows it,” another person responded.
Biden routinely says there’s a “climate crisis” caused by fossil fuels. It’s unclear how many of the motorcade vehicles are electric plug-ins or hybrids, but they appeared to be standard gas-guzzling limos, SUVs and vans.
A different Washington Post reporter, Seung Min King, wrote in a White House pool report that “we are told it is 85 vehicles” in the motorcade.
The president’s domestic motorcade usually features only a couple dozen vehicles, not including those used to block off traffic.

It’s different when Democrats do it.
This is the gas-guzzling Biden motorcade.
But remember folks…
YOU must stop driving YOUR car.
YOU must stop flying abroad.
YOU must stop eating meat.
YOU must stop using a gas boiler.
YOU must immiserate YOUR life in the name of saving the planet. pic.twitter.com/AN7Aoufvgf

Really, why is there a need for 85 vehicles? How many were flown over from the US. https://t.co/3GrYU5Q2y3

85 gas guzzling vehicles.
Flown there for no purpose. Just a vanity visit.

Biden doesn’t act like he’s very worried about climate change, does he?
