Arnold Schwarzenegger apparently loves Hummers more than he fears global warming

Font Size:

Arnold Schwarzenegger may be a global warming alarmist, but he doesn’t apparently allow that to get in the way of his promotion of one of the least environmentally-friendly vehicles on the road.

“You got to go with a Hummer to the beach when you go with your family so they are safe and protected, not with this little thing,” the former Republican governor of California told Jimmy Fallon during an appearance on “The Tonight Show” Monday night, making fun of a picture of Fallon’s car.

Schwarzenegger called Fallon’s car a “girly-man’s car.”

“This is not a man’s car,” he said.

Both during his time as governor and after, Schwarzenegger has been a vocal advocate of policies to curb carbon emissions in order to combat global warming.

In fairness to Schwarzenegger, perhaps he is unaware that not all Hummers are like his, one of which he reportedly had configured to run on vegetable oil.
