Do As I Say, Not As I Do

Al GoreIn an article at Al Gore was shown to be the hypocrite that I have been claiming him to be for months now.

A little investigative reporting revealed that Al Gore's home used as much electricity as a small Southern town. And what is worse is that after he made it "greener" his energy consumption jumped over 10%!

In the year since Al Gore took steps to make his home more energy-efficient, the former vice president’s home energy use surged more than 10 percent, according to the Tennessee Center for Policy Research.

“A man’s commitment to his beliefs is best measured by what he does behind the closed doors of his own home,” said Drew Johnson, President of the Tennessee Center for Policy Research. “Al Gore is a hypocrite and a fraud when it comes to his commitment to the environment, judging by his home energy consumption.”

In the past year, Gore’s home burned through 213,210 kilowatt-hours (kWh) of electricity, enough to power 232 average American households for a month....

DID YOU READ THAT?!!? Al Gore's main residence - not all of his residences together, just ONE house - uses enough electricity to power 232 average American households. 232! And I am supposed to take this boob seriously when he tells me to cut my carbon emissions? It is just like I wrote in an earlier article:

Here's the way the Socialist/Elitist/Liberal mind works: the sacrifices are for the little people to make, but the big, important people deserve these perks because of all the pressures they are under making sure the proles toe the line. Do you think that any of the world leaders supporting this fallacy are riding around in electric cars or taking a bike or, God-forbid a subway instead? No. Do you think they will suddenly change if they manage to get these stupid treaties passed? Don't be stupid.

They are now and always will be riding around in the biggest gas-guzzler that they can get their hands on.

My proof? Al Gore. "Captain Planet" is jetting around the world (emitting tons of carbon in the process) so that he can emit tons of hot air. This jet-setting is presumably to save us from global catastrophe. One problem - you could use the electric meter on his house for a fan! And would he have done anything about it? No, if the Tennessee Center for Policy Research hadn't exposed his hypocrisy he would have still been chugging along. However, looking like a hypocrite (even if you are one) is bad for credibility. So...

After the Tennessee Center for Policy Research exposed Gore’s massive home energy use, the former Vice President scurried to make his home more energy-efficient. Despite adding solar panels, installing a geothermal system, replacing existing light bulbs with more efficient models, and overhauling the home’s windows and ductwork, Gore now consumes more electricity than before the “green” overhaul.
What the hell is he doing in this house, enriching uranium? How is it possible for one house to use enough electricity to power Woodleaf, NC? Here is the truth once again - the real reasons that Al Gore is so "concerned" about the environment:

In the wake of becoming the most well-known global warming alarmist, Gore won an Oscar, a Grammy and the Nobel Peace Prize. In addition, Gore saw his personal wealth increase by an estimated $100 million thanks largely to speaking fees and investments related to global warming hysteria.
For Al this is all about stroking his bruised ego and lining his pockets.

I'll leave you with these words:

“Actions speak louder than words, and Gore’s actions prove that he views climate change not as a serious problem, but as a money-making opportunity,” Johnson said. “Gore is exploiting the public’s concern about the environment to line his pockets and enhance his profile.”
I couldn't agree more. If you are interested in reading other rants about this "global warming" crock you can click on the "Climate Change" and "Al Gore" labels towards the bottom of the side panel.
