You Gonna Fly?

The administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is attending the Iowa State Fair today.

Gina McCarthy will highlight the EPA’s commitment to carrying out President Obama’s Climate Action Plan to reduce carbon pollution.

McCarthy, who was in Boulder, Colorado yesterday (On climate change, Obama, EPA plan action without Congress), is presumably flying in.

According to a flight calculator at, a one way flight, in economy, from Boulder to Des Moines emits a carbon footprint of .10 metric tons.

We're willing to wager she's not flying commercial, nor is she worried about her carbon footprint and the scientific community is united in that fact.
