Hypocrite Al Gore’s Inconvenient Truth … His Home Guzzles More Electricity in One Year Than the Average American Family Uses in 21 Years”
IT AIN’T EASY BEING GREEN … WOULDN’T YOU THINK IF YOU THOUGHT CLIMATE CHANGE WAS THE SINGLE WORST THING EVER, THAT YOU WOULD LIVE BY WHAT YOU PREACHED AND SET AN EXAMPLE?
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.
SHOULD THIS BE A SURPRISE, HE CAMPAIGNED AND WON THE PRESIDENCY ON DOING SO …
As reported at The Politico, President Donald Trump is expected to pull the United States out of the Paris climate change agreement. A note to the Politico news that acts like an OPED, it is not a victory for the nationalist wing of Trump’s White House, it is a victory for America and Americans. Donald Trump campaigned during the 2016 presidential election against the myths of man-made global warming and won. Trump is simply fulfilling a campaign promise to the People. As stated at Axios, pulling out of Paris is the biggest thing Trump could do to unravel Obama’s climate legacy. Aww, poor Obama won’t have a legacy … at least the United States of America will!!!
President Donald Trump is planning to pull the United States out of the Paris climate change agreement, according to a White House official, in a move that is certain to infuriate America’s allies across the globe and could destabilize the 2015 accord.
The upcoming decision is a victory for hardliners such as senior White House adviser Stephen Bannon, who argued that the deal would hobble the U.S. economy and Trump’s energy agenda, and a defeat for moderates like Trump’s daughter Ivanka, who feared that withdrawing would damage U.S. relations abroad. Trump had promised during the campaign to “cancel” the nearly 200-nation agreement, the most comprehensive climate pact ever negotiated.
Axios first reported the news that Trump would withdraw.
World leaders repeatedly pressed Trump on the issue during his recent trip to Europe, as did Pope Francis, who gave the president his papal encyclical on climate change when they met in the Vatican. Others who supported staying included Trump’s secretary of state, Rex Tillerson, and major oil companies such as ExxonMobil and Shell.
But the vast campaign to persuade the U.S. to remain ultimately did not sway the president.
And So Making America Great Again Begins: All References to ‘Climate Change’ Deleted From White House Website at Noon Today
THE FIRST CASUALTY OF THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION … ALL REFERENCES TO CLIMATE CHANGE DELETED FROM WHITE HOUSE WEB PAGE …
In with the new, out with the old. And the first casualty of Obama presidency is that all references to climate change have been deleted from the White House website. Hmm, what happened to global warming? When you search the climate change page … poof!!! The test of the Trump presidency will be dismantling the last 8 years of damage that Obama has done to the United States and putting us back on the right track to make America Great Again!
POOF, climate change web page gone in seconds!!!
At 11:59 am eastern, the official White House website had a lengthy information page about the threat of climate change and the steps the federal government had taken to fight it. At noon, at the instant Donald Trump took office, the page was gone, as well as any mention of climate change or global warming.’
MOST AMERICANS DON’T BELIEVE IN SCIENTIFIC CONSENSUS ON CLIMATE CHANGE AND DON’T TRUST THE MEDIA REPORTING ON IT …
Is it a consensus if most Americans do not believe the “scientific consensus on climate change? As reported at CNS News, most Americans do not agree and believe the “scientific consensus” on climate change. Fifty-one percent of U.S. adults say climate change is either that the Earth’s warming stems from natural causes or that there is no evidence of warming. So much for the 97% consensus. I guess, according to Leonardo Di Caprio, more than hold of Americans shouldn’t hold public officer. Hey Leo, in my humble opinion, shut up and just act.
Hmm, climate change. What ever happened to global warming?
Nearly three-quarters of Americans don’t trust that there is a large “scientific consensus” amongst climate scientists on human behavior being the cause of climate change, according to an in-depth survey on “the politics of climate” released Tuesday by Pew Research Center.
According to the survey, only 27 percent of Americans agree that “almost all” climate scientists say that human behavior is mostly responsible for climate change, while 35 percent say that “more than half” of climate scientists agree on this. An additional 35 percent of those surveyed say that fewer than half (20%) or almost no (15%) climate scientists believe that human behavior is the main contributing factor in climate change.
Pew contrasted this to the United Nations’ Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), which “stated in the forward to its 2013 report, ‘the science now shows with 95 percent certainty that human activity is the dominant cause of observed warming since the mid-20th century.’”
Additionally, Americans were skeptical about the expertise of climate scientists.
Just 33 percent of those surveyed said that climate scientists understand “very well” whether global climate change is happening, another 39 percent said climate scientists understand this “fairly well.” Twenty-seven percent of those surveyed say climate scientists don’t understand this “too well” or don’t understand it at all.
When it comes to the causes of global climate change only 28 percent say climate scientists understand them “very well” while 31 percent say the scientists understand them “not too well” or “not at all.”
Additionally, Americans seemed to lack trust in climate scientists’ solutions to climate change. Only 19 percent say climate scientists understand very well the best ways to address climate change, and 35 percent say the scientists understand this not too well or not at all.
Americans also don’t trust the news media’s coverage of climate change. Forty-seven percent of those surveyed say the media does a “good job” covering global climate change, while 51% say they do a “bad job.”
It Must Be Global Warming … ‘Never Before Seen’ Spring Snowfall in the Caribbean Island of Guadeloupe
REMEMBER WHEN AL GORE SAID … THE EARTH HAS A FEVER. OR IS IT THE CHILLS AL?
As Ice Age Now reports, “No, it is not an April Fools Day joke, snowflakes actually fell in the neighboring French island of Guadeloupe.” Mr. Gore could not be reached for comment. Nor could Punxsutawney Phil.
“This has never happened before in recorded history,” says reader Ronald Baker. “Snow in the Caribbean islands in the spring. Wait until La Ninã kicks in this fall.”
1 Apr 2016 – “No, it is not an April Fools Day joke, snowflakes actually fell in the neighbouring French island of Guadeloupe.”
The event, described as ‘exceptional’ by French meteorologist Alain Museleque, took place on Thursday, March 31 in the municipality of St. Claude.
Reports from French media indicate that a very fine snowfall blanketed the hills above the town.
Museleque explained the extraordinary phenomenon on Guadeloupe Premiere TV.
“We had a mass of clouds that arrived over St. Claude…. In the mass of clouds, we had the creation of some snowflakes which fell to the ground. This has never before been seen in Guadeloupe. This is an exceptional event that we will never forget.”
French meteorologist, Alain Museleque, explained the extraordinary phenomenon on Guadeloupe Premiere TV.
“We had a mass of clouds that arrived over St. Claude,” he said in French and translated by McCathy Marie. “Accompanying this mass of clouds was some very cold air. In this very cold air, in the mass of clouds, we had the creation of some snowflakes which fell to the ground. This has never before been seen in Guadeloupe. This is an exceptional event that we will never forget.”
Two weeks ago in the same area, in a residential district which is just below La Soufriere Volcano overlooking the Town of Basse Terre, residents were surprised to see hailstones falling from the sky.
