Is nation operating on mostly air?

I seem to take in a good bit of what I know, learn and assimilate by way of my ears. And why not? I have the ears for it.
My ears have been compared to Abraham Lincoln’s, which I like to think is something of an exaggeration. My daughters have gone through life with the fervent hope that “they will not have my ears.”
But my ears have served me well. As with the story of the big bad wolf who was asked why his ears were so large, he answered: “The better to hear you with!”
I was shaving on a recent morning and, as usual, listening to National Public Radio quoting President Barack Obama: “Since I took office, twice as much has been powered by air than ever before in history.”
More air?
I don’t believe I would have said that. Is there not already a surplus of air?
There may already be too much blowing and huffing of air and too little actual accomplishment. But when you think about it, that’s not too surprising. Most of the things in Washington are propelled by air.
However the question is: “How much of it is hot air?”
