Pelosi Spent $500,000 on Private Jets in the Last Two Years While Lecturing Commoners on ‘Moral Obligation’ to Reduce Emissions

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi spent more than $500,000 on private jets in the last two years while lecturing commoners on the ‘moral obligation’ to reduce emissions.

“For me, it’s a religious thing,” Pelosi said in November at a Climate Change Conference in Glasgow, Scotland. “I believe this is God’s creation, and we have a moral obligation to be good stewards.”

Fox News reported:

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has spent over $500,000 on private jets since 2020 despite repeatedly describing climate change as an “existential” threat the U.S. has a “moral” obligation to address.

According to campaign filings with the Federal Election Commission, Pelosi’s campaign paid a Virginia-based private aviation provider, Advanced Aviation Team, over $437,000 between October 2020 and December 2021 and over $65,000 to Clay Lacy Aviation, a California-based private jet provider.

Private jets are notoriously bad for the environment, producing significantly more emissions per passenger than commercial flights. Pelosi’s campaign spent $67,605 on private air travel just months before she said she viewed tackling the climate crisis as a “religious thing.”

Judicial Watch also obtained documents revealing Pelosi used Air Force aircraft to travel to her district at an average cost of nearly $30,000 per flight.

Pelosi also took international congressional delegation (CODEL) at $228,500 each – AND SHE TOOK MEMBERS OF HER FAMILY ALONG.

Nancy Pelosi’s military travel expenses cost taxpayers $2,100,744.59 over a two-year period — $101,429.14 for in-flight expenses, including food and alcohol (Johnny Walker Red, Grey Goose, Courvoisier cognac and other top shelf liquors),

Pelosi isn’t the only high profile Democrat who jet-sets and lives in a large home while telling others to sacrifice for the planet.

Biden’s Climate Czar John Kerry is one of the worst offenders.

John Kerry owns a private jet, several mansions and a mega yacht.

John Kerry’s private jet emitted 166 metric tons of carbon over the past year – the same as 36 cars would in one year.

When confronted by a reporter about his choice to take gas-guzzling private jets everywhere, John Kerry said, “it’s the only choice for somebody like me who is traveling the world to win this battle.”
