Where are the protestors?

I'll be watching Tuesday, but will there be any comment about the President of Climate Change?
The carbon footprint of Barack Obama's inauguration could exceed 575 million pounds of CO2. According to the Institute for Liberty, it would take the average U.S. household nearly 60,000 years of naughty ecological behavior to produce a carbon footprint equal to the largest self-congratulatory event in the history of humankind.

The same congressfolk who are now handing out thousands of tickets to this ecological disaster only last year mandated the phased elimination of the incandescent light bulb — a mere carbon tiptoe, if you will. The whole thing seems a bit unfair.

pshhh, it's only an ecological disaster if they travel great lengths. most are locals and did you neglect to mention the fact that they're closing the roads and running most of the event through transit?
