  1. This is just as bad as his rental properties having all that toxic waste.

    When he says WE need to conserve he means everyone but him.

    POWER: GORE MANSION USES 20X AVERAGE HOUSEHOLD; CONSUMPTION INCREASE AFTER 'TRUTH'
    Mon Feb 26 2007 17:16:14 ET

    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).

    In his documentary, the former Vice President calls on Americans to conserve energy by reducing electricity consumption at home.

    The average household in America consumes 10,656 kilowatt-hours (kWh) per year, according to the Department of Energy. In 2006, Gore devoured nearly 221,000 kWh—more than 20 times the national average.

    Last August alone, Gore burned through 22,619 kWh—guzzling more than twice the electricity in one month than an average American family uses in an entire year. As a result of his energy consumption, Gore’s average monthly electric bill topped $1,359.

    Since the release of An Inconvenient Truth, Gore’s energy consumption has increased from an average of 16,200 kWh per month in 2005, to 18,400 kWh per month in 2006.

    Gore’s extravagant energy use does not stop at his electric bill. Natural gas bills for Gore’s mansion and guest house averaged $1,080 per month last year.

    “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.

    back and forth a stupid argument. if his activity, as it
    seems, has major impact on a serious global problem,
    it is simply meaningless if he spends multiples of an
    average household. one might want to see someone
    with his beliefs living in a hut on a hill - yet his influence
    is probably neglegible. and there have been thousands of
    this kind over the decades. and their influence can be
    rounded to zero.
    the REAL point about Al Gore is that it is Al Gore, former
    top politician who speaks up. if my grandchildren have
    better life than they would have without Gore's
    influence: please build him another house.

    i would say that the whole argument really collapses if i
    put his contribution to the problem to his contribution
    of the solution. i am afraid the argument is more due to
    envy than anything else.

    and his critics are either hypocrites themselves or to
    stupid to see that they are serving the side of the
    so called "sceptics" - in one or the other way. i am
    afraid this sounds very much like another rep-campaign.
    nothing else. smug and dirt. remember big tobacco?
    same thing here. no surprise, those claiming values ...
    have none when it comes to their bank accounts.

    Did anyone find it the least bit amusing when a bloated Gore was awarded an environmental award in front of a theater full of self-congratulaory, gluttonous pigs?

    Just one fact, The earth displaced and pollution released during the mining of one these dimwitted broads diamond necklaces represents a staggering an amount.

    These fucking idiots with their $50,000 gowns, leave their 20,000 square foot homes, fly in on private jets, are limo'd to a garage where they hop into a Primius, and sit in glowing self-rigtheousness in the shadow of their beloved Gore, knowing it is the evil oil-men republicans who are to be blamed.

    Like I've offered before, there is a trillion dollar energy market waiting for an alternative.... Gore has little to do with anything, besides a deep need to see himself on tv. And lift the stock prices on companies researching alternatives in the process.

    .......average household. one might want to see someone
    with his beliefs living in a hut on a hill - yet his influence
    is probably neglegible.


    So is mine or anyone's else individually.
    He is unwilling to do anything about the problem individually why should I ????(individually)

    Get the logic??
     
  7. the avg American is unwilling to take the steps individually, including myself . Although, if certain measures unfold due to his and the other hypocrites voicing their opinions on this issue then as a group we might be able to do something or be forced into action in some way or another thru taxing or regualting or by enacting certain laws...
     
  8. Yeah, it would of been really cool if the Islamic fanatical terrorist's
    would of shown up and blown them all to bits for being the big
    fat American gluttonous pigs that they are. They should all be
    living in the sand in Iraq with rags on and nothing but flies to eat
    for breakfast instead of spending one asinine night having a party.

    And those dim-witted broads. Who wants them? I surely wouldn't
    touch one of them. Damn stanky bitches with all their riches. I am
    so jealous of their cars, homes, necklaces and bright shiny teeth it
    almost makes me want to commit suicide like a suicide bomber.

    And those evil oil-sucking Republikkans. What whores. Eat the rich.
    Give the money to the poor down and out. They deserve it. Especially
    the lazy welfare slobs who sit at home and do nothing but eat and
    raise the average weight of all Americans. Frickin' slobs.
     
  9. Although I disagree with your overall satirical point that was a VERY witty post!!! Good talent!
     
  10. Let's see if we can understand the right wing logic.

    Anyone with a house larger than national average cannot talk about global warming;

    Anyone with a salary above national average cannot talk about minimum wage;

    Anyone with children in a private school cannot talk about public education;

    ...

    I think the right wingers want Lula da Silva or Hugo Chavez to be our president. If they continue like this, they might get their wish.
