Why Can't 'Eco-Conscious' Liberals Clean Up After Themselves?

For decades, a consistent media theme has been that liberals are far more concerned about the environment than conservatives.

If such is the case, why did the folks attending Barack Obama's inauguration on Tuesday treat our nation's capital like a toilet?

Consider the picture to your right as well as the embedded video below while you formulate an answer: 

According to WBALTV.com, our nation's capital was a disaster area after Tuesday's festivities:

Inaugural revelers are lucky they didn't get fined for littering.

As crowds cleared the city Tuesday, their trash covered the National Mall and Washington Monument grounds after President Barack Obama's inauguration.

They left behind plastic bottles, newspapers, food wrappers, gloves and American flags they had been waving. Trash bins overflowed with items people tossed.

Poll after poll finds liberals far more willing to accept Al Gore's myth concerning man-made global warming:
Fifty-nine percent (59%) of Democrats blame global warming on human activity, compared to 21% percent of Republicans.

Maybe liberals believe man is destroying the planet from firsthand experience.

On the other hand, if liberals in the media really were concerned about the environment like they keep telling us, shouldn't there have been a great deal of coverage regarding this issue?

Or is pollution not a problem when caused by folks supporting your agenda?

Exit question: Is this what inauguration attendees thought Obama meant when he said we needed a new era of responsibility?
