Former President Barack Obama made an appearance at the Global Food Innovation Summit in Milan this week to talk about global warming and climate change.
The former president grilled everyday people, telling them they needed to change their lifestyles in order to save the environment.
“When most of the world’s poor work in agriculture, the stark imbalances we’ve worked so hard to close between developed and developing countries will be even tougher to close,” Obama said.
He later said, “(S)ome of the refugee flows into Europe originate not only from conflict, but also from where there are food shortages that will only get worse as climate change continues.”
But, what about Obama himself and all the wastefulness of his wealthy lifestyle?
According to reports, Obama flew to the meeting on a private jet, drove to his hotel in an SUV, and rented two entire floors of the hotel for himself and his entourage.
I’m not environmental expert, but flying a private jet to an event doesn’t seem like the most environmentally friendly way to travel.
Perhaps Obama should walk the walk instead of talking the talk.
