Hillary Clinton stepped before the cameras in Iowa on Monday and said that, "The reality of climate change is unforgiving no matter what the deniers say." Then she boarded a private plane, a Dassault Falcon 900B, to jet off to her next event.
The New York Times, which played up Clinton's push for more wind and solar made no mention on her departure on a private jet; that was left to The Daily Mail and its US political editor David Martosko.
On Monday the Democratic presidential front-runner announced the details of her initiative to tackle climate change, calling it 'one of the most urgent threats of our time.'
But shortly afterward, a videographer working with the conservative America Rising PAC spotted her at the private air terminal in Des Moines.
Fifteen seconds of video shot just after 12:00 noon, local time, shows Clinton walking up the plane's stairs while an aide hods a giant black umbrella over her head to shield her from falling rain.
The Dassault Falcon is said to burn 347 gallons of jet fuel per hour and, according to The Daily Mail, costs $5,850 per hour to rent. Clinton joins her husband's former vice-president Al Gore in the global warming hypocrisy club. Gore, who famously stated that arctic sea ice would be gone by 2014, is known for his luxurious travel that includes private jets and motorcades when he travels the world to speak about the evils of global warming.
