Eco-Messiah of Hypocrisy Al Gore Now Guzzles Even More Energy Than Ever Before


It used to be that Al Gore, the champion of stopping global warming, endlessly railed at us commoners for using energy and emitting carbon – while himself using 20 times the energy as ordinary people.

But no more!

Aware of the hypocrisy of telling us to stop giving Gaia a fever even as he forced smallpox down her throat, Gore no longer uses 20 times the energy of an average home.

He now uses 22 times more energy.

Energy Guzzled by Al Gore’s Home in Past Year Could Power 232 U.S. Homes for a Month

Gore’s personal electricity consumption up 10%, despite “energy-efficient” home renovations

NASHVILLE – In the year since Al Gore took steps to make his home more energy-efficient, the former Vice President’s home energy use surged more than 10%, according to the Tennessee Center for Policy Research.

“A man’s commitment to his beliefs is best measured by what he does behind the closed doors of his own home,” said Drew Johnson, President of the Tennessee Center for Policy Research. “Al Gore is a hypocrite and a fraud when it comes to his commitment to the environment, judging by his home energy consumption.”

In the past year, Gore’s home burned through 213,210 kilowatt-hours (kWh) of electricity, enough to power 232 average American households for a month.

In February 2007, An Inconvenient Truth, a film based on a climate change speech developed by Gore, won an Academy Award for best documentary feature. The next day, the Tennessee Center for Policy Research uncovered that Gore’s Nashville home guzzled 20 times more electricity than the average American household.

After the Tennessee Center for Policy Research exposed Gore’s massive home energy use, the former Vice President scurried to make his home more energy-efficient. Despite adding solar panels, installing a geothermal system, replacing existing light bulbs with more efficient models, and overhauling the home’s windows and ductwork, Gore now consumes more electricity than before the “green” overhaul.

Since taking steps to make his home more environmentally-friendly last June, Gore devours an average of 17,768 kWh per month –1,638 kWh more energy per month than before the renovations – at a cost of $16,533. By comparison, the average American household consumes 11,040 kWh in an entire year, according to the Energy Information Administration.

In the wake of becoming the most well-known global warming alarmist, Gore won an Oscar, a Grammy and the Nobel Peace Prize. In addition, Gore saw his personal wealth increase by an estimated $100 million thanks largely to speaking fees and investments related to global warming hysteria.

“Actions speak louder than words, and Gore’s actions prove that he views climate change not as a serious problem, but as a money-making opportunity,” Johnson said. “Gore is exploiting the public’s concern about the environment to line his pockets and enhance his profile.”

The Tennessee Center for Policy Research, a Nashville-based free market think tank and watchdog organization, obtained information about Gore’s home energy use through a public records request to the Nashville Electric Service.

Amazing. How does he, one man (albeit very big, fat and greedy) manage to use 1.6 times more energy per month than an ordinary family uses in a year?!

    No doubt Gore will claim all this energy comes from solar power and power generated by recycling the methane in his own farts.

  2. hutchrun Says:

    They should stick a fartometer up his to measure.
    I`m sure its equivalent to 5 cows doing it at a time.

    The wisdom of Al “Boy Scout” Gore:
    “We are ready for any unforeseen event that may or may not occur.”

    Obama’s energy czar Dr. Steven Chu known
    as “the Tin Foil Hat guy” or the “Santorini guy” after his brilliant scheme—proposed at a 2008 London climate change conference—to paint all our rooftops and sidewalks white, in a kind of Greek Island style.
    Apparently the energy saved would be the equivalent of taking all cars off the road for eleven years.
    Maybe next he’ll want to be examining the potential of mining the moon for green cheese or extracting sunbeams from cucumbers.
