Gore Uses More Power Than Typical Home
Al Gore | Photo Credit THR.com Former Vice President Al Gore is preparing his Inconvenient Truth sequel subtitled, “Truth to Power,” which is more gloomy than the original. Apparently, Gore’s home energy use is more of a “do as I say, not as I do,” mentality.
In fact, in the past year, Gore has used enough energy to power a typical American household for 21 years, according to a report by the National Center for Public Policy Research.
Perhaps he doesn’t care so much about those polar bears as he has let on.

The Daily Caller writes:
“The former vice president consumed 230,889-kilowatt hours (kWh) at his Nashville residence, which includes his home, pool, and driveway entry gate electricity meters. A typical family uses an average of 10,812 kWh of electricity per year, according to the U.S. Energy Information Administration. It gets worse.”
“Last September alone, Gore devoured 30,993 kWh of electricity. That’s enough to power 34 average American homes for a month. Over the last 12 months, Gore used more electricity just heating his outdoor swimming pool than six typical homes use in a year.”

“The opening weekend for any new movie is usually when the public, rife with anticipation, lines up to buy tickets at theaters. In this case, the opening weekend seemed to signal a major lack of interest on the part of the public, but more importantly, lack of interest in promoting the film by the studio itself, Paramount, who limited the opening weekend to just 4 theaters nationwide.”
“I’m not sure Mr. Gore will recover any momentum like he had with the original AIT film in 2006… For example, it was shown that in a Gore-produced “high school science experiment” film about carbon dioxide, that the results demonstrating warming had to be faked in post production to make the experiment work.”
“We caught and called him out on it, and yet the video remains on his website today, years later.”
