President Bush today signed executive order #13423, directing federal agencies to lead our energy conservation efforts by example.
He then boarded Marine One, a Sikorsky helicopter with an average fuel consumption of 162 gallons per hour, or a gallon every 23 seconds.
He departed Marine One and boarded Air Force One, a Boeing 747-200B which burns about 2,750 gallons per hour, or a gallon about every three-quarters of a second.
He arrived in Delaware, 94 miles away, to espouse the virtues of energy conservation. In particular, fuel consumption and conservation topped the list.
Am I the only one who sees the flaw in this logic?
/edit: I cited the wrong ExO number
