Hypocrisy Alert: The Left Makes Magic Carbon Footprints That Don't Count

Have you taken an airplane trip this year? If so, you've already harmed the environment in the single, largest way possible. Unless, of course, you flew to the March for Science in Washington, D.C. in honor of Earth Day.

"Theirs is this magic carbon. As long as your heart's in the right place, it doesn't count. It's negated because you mean well," Doc Thompson said Thursday, filling in for Glenn on radio.

Doc and his producer Kris Kruz attended the event this past April --- for purely scientific reasons, of course --- and asked attendees about their mode of transportation. Person after person either flew or drove across multiple states to take a stand for the environment.

"You're telling us how horrible things are, but you're willing to fly in. And by the way, just you being there creates more carbon," Doc said.

Enjoy the complimentary clip or read the transcript for details.

BRAD: I mean, it's good not to pollute, it's good to not litter. I don't think anybody likes polluted lakes or streams, but they've just taken it to extreme.

KRIS: What about the climate change march a couple of months ago.

DOC: Yeah, it was on Earth Day, and we had some fun with that.

KRIS: Not only did we have fun, but we saw Bill Nye the science guy, we passed him. I didn't even recognize him until he got on stage. But the way he was received, it was like Lady Gaga just walked in.

DOC: He was a Beatle there. I'm not kidding. He was a rock star. It was incredible. I mean, I knew that some people liked him and probably supported him. It was an, oh, my god. They were throwing their panties on stage. I mean, seriously.

BRAD: That's just disturbing.

DOC: I'm just assuming. With the frenzy, I'm sure somebody did. Maybe a couple of little old ladies up there.

KRIS: Instead of questions, all they were giving us were bullet points. The same on TV. For example, how can we tax the carbon? Well, we can tax it. Yeah, but how can you tax it? How can you make companies pay for it? Oh, there's something working. No.

DOC: And ultimately how does that help the environment, and they wouldn't -- the best is I did a Facebook live that morning as we were walking down the long line of people trying to get into the area where the speechifying would be going on. And this, again, is that science march going on around Earth Day in Washington, D.C. And I'm just going down the line and they didn't know where I'm from. And I'm, like, hey, where are you from? And I was, like, are you guys flying? No, we drove this in. Hey, where are you from? We flew in yesterday. And person after person after person. And I'm like...

BRAD: They didn't getting it.

DOC: You're not getting it. Just you being there created more carbon.

KRIS: But they're there standing for the environment. That's all that matters. All of that carbon footprint.

DOC: Doesn't matter.

KRIS: It gets deleted as long as they stand for the climate.

DOC: Theirs is this magic climate. As long as your heart's in the right place, it doesn't count. It's negated because you mean well.

BRAD: The Leonardo DiCaprio movie before the flood that was out last year, I watched of that. Interesting movie.

DOC: You're the one.

BRAD: I recommend you watch it. But they suggested taking a carbon test, a carbon credit test, whatever it was. And as soon as you start, did you take any airline trips last year? Yes. That's when your carbon footprint.

DOC: It's one of the worst things.

BRAD: Yeah, it goes way -- I am, through the roof.

DOC: Go to some of the airline websites. A lot of them have a place where you can offset your carbon credit -- or your carbon creation. You can pay a little bit more money. Some of them have already factored into your tickets if you look closely. Go to their website. You have to dig for it. But it's out there because they want to get the promotion from the greenies. They want them to go, look, that airline cares about me and the environment. But they don't want to, like, lead with it for people like me that are, like, wait a minute. You charged me an extra $14 for this stuff or whatever?

KRIS: $14 is for the environment.

DOC: Right. That would be their argument. It's crazy it's out there.

BRAD: I wonder why there would be an airline greenie airways just to see how well it does. Fly greenie airways, and we offset all of your carbon footprint.

DOC: The pilots are pedaling? Like the Flintstones in the back of a plane.

BRAD: I bet you there wouldn't be full flights.

DOC: Yeah, you have to make it rough on them too. You're not going to need luxury because we have to

scale back to keep it as light as possible.

BRAD: Not turning the air conditioning on the plane. It's going to be a little warm while flying. Get used to it.

DOC: Open the windows. You'll be fine. Don't worry about it.

FULL EPISODE: 'The Democrats' Hydra'

"As one falls, two more will take their place." Democracy does die in darkness and is being strangled in secret, back-door arrangements. In the third part of Glenn's special series on the REAL Ukraine scandal, the team's research exposes a much bigger story of what Democrats were doing in Ukraine. Disturbing details and explosive documents reveal how the Obama Deep State allowed the theft of a country and has set the stage for devastating consequences in our democracy today. Glenn explains how it's all happening under the nose of the president and, more importantly, without the approval of the American people.

Bill O'Reilly: How corrupt media twisted Joe Biden Ukraine scandal onto Trump

Bill O'Reilly gives his take on whether or not President Trump DID promise or threaten the President of Ukraine for dirt on Joe Biden, and whether or not the action is grounds for impeachment. But O'Reilly explains that either way, the media has demonstrated its corruptness yet again by manipulating the story away from a scandal for Joe and Hunter, and towards a potential, rumored wrongdoing by Donald Trump.
