Gore Still Sucking Up the Energy

June 17, 2008

Our friends at the Tennessee Center for Policy Research have been looking at Al Gore's personal residential energy consumption again, and things are only getting more embarrassing for the world's foremost global warming alarmist:

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.

Has anyone looked for grow lights in his basement?

Perhaps you should look at your own energy consumption rather than worrying about Al Gore's. Global warming is a real problem and a true conservative should be looking to conserve the nation's resources effectively whether those resources are money, oil, or electricity. P.S. Al Gore's electricity was most likely produced by wind or solar power instead of coal. How many killowatt hours of electricity does your home use? Is it from the sun or from coal?
