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 Hypocritehouse 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. Gore’s mansion, [20-room, eight-bathroom] 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).

(Al Gore brings a copy of his energy bill to the Oscars )

Last night while  hob-knobbing with the beautiful people at the Oscars Al Gore made the following comment:

“We have everything we need to get started with the possible exception of the will to act. That’s a renewable resource. Let’s renew it.”

Maybe you might want to find the will to act yourself Al??? Unbelievable, you hypocrite. I guess this might be considered an inconvenient truth for Al Gore as well.

“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”

      #1, I hate to remind y’all that Little Al was from the Volunteer state.

      I will never forget the time during the 2000 election when in one breath he weeped over his sister who died of lung cancer and he railed on big tobacco when he earlier met with Big Tobacco and did his famous … I am of tobacco … I hoed it, I suckered it …

      Little Al has a history of hypocrisy.

      BTW thank you dinnisintn for not having TN, Little Al’s home state, not vote for him in 2000.

    5. dennisintn on February 26th, 2007 11:06 pm

      i think big al needs to migrate to aruba. he’d do well there.

    6. dennisintn on February 26th, 2007 11:09 pm

      roflmao, i just had a fleeting glimpse of tipper and julia vying for his affections. scary, i tell you, just plumb scary.

      and don’t forget, you owe him thanks for that internet invention thing.

      #1 and #4. Al was NOT born in The Volunteer State, therefore he is NOT a Tennessean. Gore was born in DC and is no less a carpet bagger than those nefarious jerks who invaded the south after the Civil War.

      Gore is a duplicitous, elitist liberal who portends to tell the unwashed/uneducated masses how they should live. Yet, he believes himself too important and educated to live the way he wants others to do so.

      No one should be surprised that he won an Academy Award. The Ell Aye/hollerwood folks have been handing those things out like penny candy. Thus, the oscar no longer has any true meaning.

      A reasonably well known person who makes a left-leaning diatribe, er movie, is almost assured of an oscar nod. Well, unless there are Two left-leaning diatribes, then the academy must look at the films competitively (yech).

    8. joe bear on February 26th, 2007 11:19 pm

      Yes,Al knows his bacca,shine and his ore.He is great for lobbist.

    9. Scared Monkeys on February 27th, 2007 12:05 am

      #7, Yes you are correct that he was born in Washington, DC … the main point being that Al Gore senior was from TN and in turn “Little Al” became the Senator on TN as well. I would not want to take credit for him either … so point well taken.

      He had served in the United States House of Representatives (1977-85) and the United States Senate (1985-93) for Tennessee.

      Al is truly a piece of work. Does he fly commercial coach or economy class when he goes to make his speaches? Or is it private? Hmm.

      That $30,000 in annual consumption of electric and natural gas doesn’t include his 4000 sq. ft. home in Arlington, Virginia. But I think Al can handle the financial burden his huge carbon footprint on the environment, fueling those chartered jets and chauffeured limousines and powering that behemoth 10,000 sq. ft. Nashville mansion, after all, Tipper has switched to a hybrid SUV and the 34,337 shares of Occidental Petroleum stock his father bequeathed to the Gore family trust in 1998, of which Al Gore, Jr. is trustee, has done quite well since the death of his father.

      The OXY chart:

      I got nothing against wealth and mansions, but it’s a little offensive when high flying jet-setters with chauffeured limousines and brightly lit mansions ask me to dim my lights and conserve fuel. I don’t need an energy-piggish, self-appointed greenie preaching environmental responsibility to get me to conserve energy because conservation in my neck of the woods is a financial necessity.

    11. Scared Monkeys on February 27th, 2007 1:30 am

      Bodo … I have nothing against the mansions either … just don’t go telling other people what to do when Al seems to not follow his own advice.

      By his own words … “We have everything we need to get started with the possible exception of the will to act. That’s a renewable resource. Let’s renew it.”

      Maybe when he get’s the “will to act”, others may as well.

    12. slogmonster on February 27th, 2007 8:11 am

      I guess Al thinks he’s so wonderful that the rules don’t apply to him. :(

    13. Miss-Underestimated on February 27th, 2007 1:29 pm

      Does anyone have any idea how big Al’s carbon footprint is?

    14. pdh3 on February 27th, 2007 3:22 pm

      I’m no Al Gore fan, but in the interest of fairness I have to point out that the Gore family gets their electricity from the Green Powerswitch program, which is 100% renewable, and that they are in the process of installing solar panels in their home. He may be a hypocrite, but not about his energy bill.
      And once again, let me point out that hypocrisy reigns in Washington on both sides of the political fence. You could point a finger at all of them for being guilty of saying one thing and doing another. And you could add Rush Limbaugh and Ann Coulter to that list as well.

    15. slogmonster on February 27th, 2007 4:32 pm

      #14 Thankyou for clarifying how Gore gets his electricity.

      I stand corrected.

    16. d on March 1st, 2007 10:49 am

      Don’t forget that Gore also buys carbon offsets. I find myself wanting to do more in my home to offset my carbon footprint but there are others that I must think of as well. As much as I’m sure Al wants to he may not be able to do to the life style of his family members.

      And even if he isn’t smart about his carbon use that gives us NO reason not to be. The facts are on the table anyone who says I’m not changing because Al didn’t change is just an immature idiot with no will to try anything new.
