Al Gore's House Uses 34 Times the Electricty as an Average House


Recommended Posts


Hypocrisy, thy name is...Al Gore?

A new, more-than-slightly amusing report from The Daily Caller alleges that the former vice president just might not be practicing what he preaches when it comes to the environment. Namely: his house in Nashvile uses 34 times as much electricity than an average house. According to the Daily Caller, the amount of electricty that Gore uses to heat his swimming pool over the course of a year could power six average households.  

In just this past year, Gore burned through enough energy to power the typical American household for more than 21 years, according to a new report by the National Center for Public Policy Research. The former vice president consumed 230,889 kilowatt hours (kWh) at his Nashville residence, which includes his home, pool and driveway entry gate electricity meters. A typical family uses an average of 10,812 kWh of electricity per year, according to the U.S. Energy Information Administration

Black Conservatives Say Al Gore ‘Made A Living Peddling Lies’ About Global Warming

Al Gore’s has “made a living peddling lies” about global warming that is hurting poor African-American households, according to black conservative activists.
“Isn’t it cute when someone who has made a living peddling lies about the weather lectures Americans about how they should live?” Stacy Washington, Project 21 Co-Chairman, said in a Thursday statement. “Actually, it isn’t. It’s not cute, it doesn’t make sense and it’s downright insulting.”
The National Leadership Network of Black Conservatives Project 21 claims that Gore is behaving hypocritically by attempting to restrict access to cheap energy with an environmental justification. Gore’s net worth has swelled to $200 million off of profits he has earned from global warming rhetoric, and he has used that wealth to consume far more electricity than the average American.
The group took offense to Gore’s repeated comparisons of the civil rights movement to modern environmentalism.:snip:
