Al Gore Uses More Than Twice as Much Energy as an Average Home!

Up until now I have pretty much kept politics out of my blogging topics, choosing to focus more on Tech and Personal issues, but hey, why not? I have never seen such blatant hypocrisy as this. Al Gore, who won an Oscar for his documentary on global warming actually uses twice as much energy in his own personal home than most Americans do in a year. Apparently he offsets his extreme energy use by purchasing credits in a “Green” company that minimizes pollution. I hope he gets his Oscar taken away or shoved up his @ss.

Al Gore’s posh home in the Nashville suburbs might be “carbon neutral,” but it still uses a lot of power.
So much that last August Tipper and Al Gore used twice as much electricity in their two-building property as an average U.S. household uses in an entire year, the Tennessee Center for Policy Research, a think tank, reported Tuesday.
Public power and gas bills turned up by the group show that the man behind the Oscar-winning global warming wakeup documentary, “An Inconvenient Truth,” uses much more overall carbon-based fuel than the average American, spending thousands of dollars a month on electricity and gas.
“As the spokesman of choice for the global warming movement, Al Gore has to be willing to walk the walk, not just talk the talk, when it comes to home energy use,” Tennessee Center for Policy Research President Drew Johnson said in a statement. The center says on its Web site that it “promotes personal freedom and limited government.”
