On Friday, Al Gore’s new movie “An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power” will be airing in movie theaters throughout the country. It will be a sequel to his previous film “An Inconvenient Truth.” As the movie is about to hit theaters, recent reports inform that Gore’s hypocritical lifestyle has plunged to humiliating new depths.
According to the Drew Johnson at the Daily Caller, Gore’s house consumed enough energy to support a typical American household for over two decades. In particular, Gore consumed 239,889 kilowatt hours (kWh) at his Nashville residence. A typical family, in contrast, uses about 10,812 kWh of electricity every year.
Last September Gore used 30,993 kWh of electricity, which is enough to power 34 American homes for over a month. And during the last 6 months, Gore used more electricity to heat his outdoor swimming pool than 6 typical homes use in an entire year.
These statistics on Gore’s energy consumption do not include his other two homes – a penthouse in San Francisco and a farmhouse in Carthage, Tennessee.
This information comes from the National Center for Public Policy Research, which obtained their information from the Nashville Electric Service, the utility that provides power to Gore’s home and much of Tennessee.
“When Gore’s inconvenient truth became public knowledge, he promised to change his ways and gave his property a green makeover,” writes Johnson. “Gore added 33 solar panels at a princely price tag of approximately $60,000. He also upgraded the home’s windows and ductwork, replaced the insulation, put in a driveway rainwater collection system, and installed a geothermal heating system.”
“In total,” Johnson continues, “the renovations are estimated to cost well over $250,000.”
Despite spending a substantial amount of money on environmentally friendly innovations and acting as a prominent national leader on environmental issues, Gore’s energy consumption remains higher than ever.
