Another Inconvenient Truth for Al Gore … Gore TN Mansion uses 20x’s Energy Consumption vs. the Average Commoner
Hey Al … Maybe you might want to stop global warming by taking care of your own house first? As Al Gore lived up the “rock star” status in Hollywood last night telling us what to do, his own home burned more energy vacant than ours could ever have consumed. What an example to set for the global warming community. But I guess Al Gore is special and gets a “green” pass.
The Tennessee Center for Policy Research, an independent, nonprofit and nonpartisan research organization committed to achieving a freer, more prosperous Tennessee through free market policy solutions, issued a press release late Monday: 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.

“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.
A terrific rant at Stop the ACLU. As Instapundit states, “It’s an Inconvenient Utility Bill“. Let us know forget fellow Democrat John Edward’s fuel efficient 28K sq. ft home. Sister Toldjah … “he, well, doesn’t practice what he preaches”
