Al Gore collected an Oscar from the gullible rubes in Hollywood last night. You know the “Gulfstream environmentalists” who insist that their staff do everything possible to reduce energy use as long as it doesn’t result in any inconvenience for them.
Through the efforts of the “Tennessee Center for Policy Research” using the internet that Al invented, we now know that, not only does Al fly much more than other people, he uses far more electricity than most people.
Last night, Al Gore’s global-warming documentary, An Inconvenient Truth, collected an Oscar for best documentary feature, but the Tennessee Center for Policy Research has found that Gore deserves a gold statue for hypocrisy.
Gore’s mansion, located in the posh Belle Meade area of Nashville, consumes more electricity every month than the average American household uses in an entire year, according to the Nashville Electric Service (NES).
In his documentary, the former Vice President calls on Americans to conserve energy by reducing electricity consumption at home.
The average household in America consumes 10,656 kilowatt-hours (kWh) per year, according to the Department of Energy. In 2006, Gore devoured nearly 221,000 kWh—more than 20 times the national average.
Last August alone, Gore burned through 22,619 kWh—guzzling more than twice the electricity in one month than an average American family uses in an entire year. As a result of his energy consumption, Gore’s average monthly electric bill topped $1,359.
So if you care about the environment you should be pleased to know that you are making a difference, but Al is burning up all the progress you made.
Don’t worry though. Al is serious about fighting “Global Climate Change”. He will continue with his work no matter what the cost to you. He will fight to your last dollar.
