Yesterday in Decorah, Iowa, Sen. Hillary Clinton, D-NY, said, "Today is Earth Day, and I personally believe every day should be Earth Day…Some of the damage … we didn’t know about, we didn’t understand," she said. "But now we do – so we have no excuses left."
But Clinton skeptics have pointed to the fact that the day before Earth Day she participated in a photo op with Rep. Leonard Boswell, D-Iowa, in which she and the congressman drove to a fundraiser in an 18-wheeler.

18-wheelers are generally not considered to be carbon-neutral methods of transportation. According to a website at Oregon State University, one 18-wheeler can emit as many nitrogen oxides and soot pollutants as 150 passenger cars.
