Thus, he travels to his workplace with by his Gulfstream jet that costs hundreds of thousands of dollars per year.

The environmentalists believe that the politician is setting a bad example to his constituents.

"If you are going to be talking about an issue, you should be living the reality you are trying to embrace," he added.

However, the Hollywood hardman said that his airborne allows him to be with his children.

"The question is how can I be with my family, because that is extremely important, to be with my kids. They are all growing up. They are in their teens. They need their father around,” said Schwarzenegger.
