…and increase your energy consumption. That’s right, increase. Apparently since embarking on his globetrotting tour in jumbo jets and private SUVs to tell everyone else how they should live and advising everyone else to cut down on energy consumption, the Goracle has been offsetting everyone else’s energy conservation:
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%, 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.
Since taking steps to make his home more environmentally-friendly last June, Gore devours an average of 17,768 kWh per month –1,638 kWh more energy per month than before the renovations – at a cost of $16,533. By comparison, the average American household consumes 11,040 kWh in an entire year, according to the Energy Information Administration.
Sure, the Goracle thinks climate change is a serious problem… because if everyone else doesn’t buy into his climate change fraud, it will cease being a money-making venture for him. And that’s a serious problem… for him.
