Obama Biden: Two Jets Two Airports Within a Few Miles of Each Other for Earth Day

The gigantic carbon footprints of Obama and Biden grow even bigger today, because this is EARTH DAY. Obama and Biden will each take separate jets, to fly 250 miles to New York. They will land at different airports and attend separate events "within a few miles of each other."

Air Force One

Air Force One bearing the The One is a 747/VC-25 aircraft. Air Force Two bearing the veep is a 757/C-32A (at least that is what this post at NYC Aviation claims). Air Force One and Air Force Two will:
...delay dozens, if not hundreds of commercial flights at kennedy and LaGuardia and other nearby airports as no-fly zones are implements. Jets will be forced to circle and burn more fuel as they wait for the VIPs to come and go. Their security contingents consisting of dozens of cars, SUVs and helicopters wil burn even more. Throw in thousands of commuters' cars and delivery trucks sitting idle in traffic as law enforcement closes large swaths of the city and you have yourself a very Earth-unfriendly day.
