• Al Gore’s Personal Energy Use Is His Own “Inconvenient Truth”

    Gore’s home uses more than 20 times the national average

    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.

    Since the release of An Inconvenient Truth, Gore’s energy consumption has increased from an average of 16,200 kWh per month in 2005, to 18,400 kWh per month in 2006.

    Gore’s extravagant energy use does not stop at his electric bill. Natural gas bills for Gore’s mansion and guest house averaged $1,080 per month last year.

    “As the spokesman of choice for the global warming movement, Al Gore has to be willing to walk to walk, not just talk the talk, when it comes to home energy use,” said Tennessee Center for Policy Research
    President Drew Johnson.

    In total, Gore paid nearly $30,000 in combined electricity and natural gas bills for his Nashville estate in 2006.

    The specific numbers involved were disputable (the TCPR claimed Gore’s home used electricity at a rate more than “20 times the national average,” while the Associated Press reported that their own review of bills indicated that the Gores’ Nashville household used more than 12 times the average for a typical household in that area), but the basic gist of the claim — that the Gores’ Nashville residence consumed a larger proportion of energy than the average American home — was true.

    Some important points not covered in the report, however, included whether equating the Gores’ home to the average American home was really a relevant comparison. A spokesperson for the Gore family responded by noting some mitigating factors, such as the fact that the Gores’ Nashville residence isn’t an “average” house: it’s about four times larger than the average new American home built in 2006, and it essentially functions as both a residence and a business office since both Al and Tipper work out of their home. The Tennessean also noted that the Gores had been paying a $432 per month premium on their monthly electricity bills in order to obtain some of their electricity from “green” sources (i.e., solar or other renewable energy sources). Other factors (such as the climate in the area where the home is located and its size) made the Gore home’s energy usage comparable to that of other homes in the same area.

    The former vice-president maintained that comparing raw energy-usage figures was misleading and that he leads what he advocates, a “carbon-neutral lifestyle,” by purchasing energy from renewable energy sources such as solar, wind and methane gas to balance out the carbon emissions produced in generating the electricity his home used:

  • Gore claimate activist that flies around the world in a fuel guzzling jet with all his climate friendly friends. What a phony piece of crap this man is! 

  • Gore has been crazy for years as well as his buddy Billy Boy Gates


    Good point. The Chinese virus vaxers were able to do in months what the environmentalist “wackos” have been trying to do for decades! Scare us into submissions so they can take control of our lives. It worked……the "sheople" followed !

  • Al Gory is a menace to society. His plan to save the planet is to create a world where billions of people die and suffer for the worship of mother earth. This fool doesn’t realize it’s the Creator (God of Heaven and Earth) who we worship not the creation.

  • We know all these things.  We know climate change, Covid and etc. are fraudulent covers for control and the toppling of our democratic republic.  We know Fauci's, CDC's, NIH's, WHO's phony "vaccines" are killing people and that it is by design, not accident.  Our CIA knows it and it probably instrumental in it, as well as the FBI and other intelligence organizations

    Our members of congress know these things as well.  We must demand and demand strongly that the people behind these frauds and myriad criminal acts be brought to justice, every one of them and now..  That would include bureau heads and their minions, industrial captains, former politicians and any current policiticians implicated.  These transgressions can no longer go unanswered.  35,000 Haitians travelled the 1,000 plus miles from their island, over the ocean to Mexico in order to crash our borders, for example.  They have no money.  Who paid for it and transported them?  Are we to believe that our CIA doesn't know?  The NSA is monitoring this comment -- but there's no explanation for the Haitian invasion??

    We need to be on our feet and present in the faces of those we have elected.
