The Governator and saving the environment

The L.A. Times has reported on Governor Arnold Schwarzeneger's almost daily commute to work, and it is a tough one indeed. He travels all the way from Brentwood to Sacramento, a trip that measures about 75 miles, and takes around 3 hours. By plane. Oh excuse me, I meant by private jet. Aides to the Gov. say that he picks up the bill for this expense which is in the hundreds of thousands of dollars a year, and that's just going to go up (thank you OPEC). But what about the effects that this must have on the environment oh Terminator of green house gases? Shaquille O'Neal's shoes could not contain Arnold's carbon footprint. Of course, he does purchase carbon offsets, so that makes everything ok. He jets home at the end of the day, and someone somewhere plants a tree. Aaahh I can just hear Bob Denver in the background now. Oh wait a second, no I can't, he's dead. He crashed his plane. At least he had the decency to do so before all this carbon offset, carbon neutral, carbon footprint, global warming, glaciers are melting, polar bears are dying, Kyoto Treaty, give Al Gore a @#!*ing award BS took over the world. What is it with these Governor's lately? Ever hear the phrase live by the sword die by the sword?
