Hypocrite Al Gore’s Inconvenient Truth … His Home Guzzles More Electricity in One Year Than the Average American Family Uses in 21 Years”



If you ever looked up the word hypocrite in the dictionary, you would see a picture of Al Gore. The former Vice President and now global warming crusader spends his time lecturing all of us about the evils of global warming, of sorry, climate change as he heeds none of his own words. His first move, ‘An Inconsistent Truth,’ proved to be completely false as none of his predictions came true. Even more comical, after his movie came out and the “green” wonder won an Academy Award, Gore was provided with some inconvenient facts about his home and lack of greenness.

Could he be more of a hypocrite? Let’s say Gore is correct, and I am in no way saying he is, but for argument sake. So is Gore so believes all this is harmful to the Earth, why is he one of the biggest abusers? How could anyone really believe what Gore spews as they see he is guilty of doing exactly what he lectures others to do?


Al Gore’s Inconvenient Reality: The Former Vice President’s Home Energy Use Surges up to 34 Times the National Average Despite Costly Green Renovation

In powering his home, Gore still greatly outpaces most Americans in energy consumption. The findings were shocking:
• The past year, Gore’s home energy use averaged 19,241 kilowatt hours (kWh) every month, compared to the U.S. household average of 901 kWh per month.3,4
• Gore guzzles more electricity in one year than the average American family uses in 21 years.5
• In September of 2016, Gore’s home consumed 30,993 kWh in just one month – as much energy as a typical American family burns in 34 months.
• During the last 12 months, Gore devoured 66,159 kWh of electricity just heating his pool. That is enough energy to power six average U.S. households for a year.
• From August 2016 through July 2017, Gore spent almost $22,000 on electricity bills.6
• Gore paid an estimated $60,000 to install 33 solar panels. Those solar panels produce an average of 1,092 kWh per month, only 5.7% of Gore’s typical monthly energy consumption.

However, even after these embarrassing facts were put forth from Mr. “Do as I say, not as I do” Gore, he supposedly made ‘green” changes to his 10,070 square feet home, his house is still an energy waster. This is the man that tells us that climate change is real and will cause the end of times. If he really believed this, why would he own a home like this?


Upon winning the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize, Gore stated, “The only way to solve this [environmental] crisis is for individuals to make changes in their own lives.”39 Judging by his own home electricity consumption, Gore is failing to live up to the standards he expects of everyone else.

After the embarrassing revelations that his home wolfed down nearly 20 times more electricity than the average American household, Gore made updates in an effort to make his home more energy efficient. Even those costly measures could not prevent his home energy consumption from rising even higher.

This year, Gore’s electricity consumption averages 19,241 kWh per month, or more than 21 times the typical usage in an American home. That is a considerable increase from Gore’s 2007 home energy consumption of about 18,400 kWh per month, which spurred a six-figure green renovation of the house.

Gore apologists blame the size of Gore’s home – a mansion, by any measure – for his extreme electricity use. That argument does not stand up to the facts. According to standards of energy efficiency, an “efficient” home burns between five and 10 kWh of electricity per square foot each year. Gore’s home annually burns nearly 23 kWh of electricity per square foot.

Al Gore has attained a near-mythical status for his frenzied efforts to propagandize global warming. At the same time, Gore has done little to prove his commitment to the cause in his own life. While Gore encourages people throughout the world to reduce their carbon footprint and make drastic changes to cut energy consumption, Gore’s own home electricity use has hypocritically increased to more than 21 times the national average this past year with no sign of slowing down.

      While I agree with your basic thesis, that Al Gore should, through personal lifestyle example, be more committed to a carbon neutral personal lifestyle, the above article totally is not nuanced. It has no context for other factors, which might account for the large electricity usage. Examples I can easily cite are: 1. large families use more electricity (e.g. I use much less than the national average because I and my wife are only two people in one house), 2. meetings, visitors, and entertainment use more electricity, 3. swimming pools use electricity, if heated, so having a swimming pool will guarantee use of much more electricity than the average family which doesn’t have such a pool (e.g. residents of NYC typically don’t have swimming pools if they live in high rise apartments), and so on. The excess use of electricity could be offset by alternative generation, which to some extent is done so in Gore’s case, with solar panels. So, the important point here is that the context of electricity use must be made and appropriate comparison groups must be used before drawing any conclusions.
      SM: Nuanced? According to Gore, we pions should not have a pool. You don’t get to have the luxuries of the hypocritical rich. It does not matter how it compares to others, what it is saying that the man who says this stuff is evil does so at 21 x’s more than the average American. BTW, there are families with 5,6,7 kids in it that dont use this type of energy. Did you not read the article?

      The Size Argument

      According to property assessment data, Gore’s home is 10,070 square feet.14 Many Gore defenders point to the large size of his residence as an explanation for his massive energy consumption.

      The facts, however, do not bear this argument out.

      According to Energy Vanguard, a company devoted to making homes more energy efficient, an “efficient” home uses between 5-10 kWh of electricity per square foot each year.15 A house that consumes 15 kWh per square foot or more of electricity per year is categorized as “bad” due to its inefficiency and excessive electricity consumption. Homes that expend more than 20 kWh of electricity per square foot each year are labeled “energy hogs,” which is Energy Vanguard’s worst rating.

      Gore’s home consumed 22.9 kWh per square foot in the past 12 months, more than quadrupling the electricity consumption of homes that are considered energy efficient, regardless of size. Based on its kWh per square foot measure, the house would easily earn an “energy hog” rating.

      Even by apples-to-apples comparison, Gore’s home is extraordinarily energy inefficient and consumes an astonishing amount of electricity.

      Please dont make excuses for this liar and con man who has made himself rich from so-called global warming.
