Former Vice President Al Gore has a new documentary out. “An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power” has been labeled as unqualified bore even by liberal media critics who gushed over the first film, but Gore may have bigger problems than a substandard follow-up to his environmental propaganda movie. According to a new report by the National Center for Public Policy Research, Gore isn’t just guilty of turning the hoax of global warming into a mainstream Hollywood trend, he’s also guilty of rank hypocrisy when it comes to lowering his own “carbon footprint.”
The report shows that over the past year, Gore has used more energy than it would take the average American family to burn through in 21 years! At his Nashville mansion alone, Gore has eaten through 230,889 kilowatt hours of electricity to power his home, keep up his pool, and operate his electronic security gates. This can be compared to the 10,812 kWh of electricity the average family uses in a given year. And yet this douche has the audacity to fly around the world and lecture us on the importance of a green lifestyle.
In an op-ed for The Daily Caller, Drew Johnson of the NCPPR noted that this was not the first time his organization had caught Gore with his hand in the carbon cookie jar:
In 2007, the day after Gore won an Academy Award for “An Inconvenient Truth,” I revealed Gore’s hypocritically high electric bills. In some months, I discovered, his residence gobbled up to 20 times more electricity than the average American household.
When Gore’s inconvenient truth became public knowledge, he promised to change his ways and gave his property a green makeover. 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.
The Nobel laureate also heroically went to the trouble of replacing his incandescent light bulbs with compact fluorescent ones.
In total, the renovations are estimated to cost well over $250,000.
But the home’s green facelift wasn’t enough to offset Gore’s colossal energy consumption.
Despite spending more than a quarter-million dollars on making his home more environmentally friendly, his energy consumption is higher than ever.
Gore, like his climate zealot buddies in La La Land, refuses to make the very same sacrifices he prescribes for others. He’s like a chain smoker on a crusade to make smoking illegal. Heal thyself, sinner.
