Can someone please explain to me how this fraud still has any credibility:
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.
In February 2007, An Inconvenient Truth, a film based on a climate change speech developed by Gore, won an Academy Award for best documentary feature. The next day, the Tennessee Center for Policy Research uncovered that Gore’s Nashville home guzzled 20 times more electricity than the average American household.
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.
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.
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.
Here’s some really bad, illogical math for you. We keep hearing how the average people needs to do more to save the planet. Yet, and I keep using my family of six as an example, we can’t possibly keep up with people like Al Gore [pictured] and their consumption. The world would be better served if Al and Tipper moved into a nice 1500 sq ft home that fits a couple with no children living at home. Consider these numbers:
The population of the United States – 303,824,646
A random guess at the amount of ultra rich in the US: 1.09 million people (based on tax returns)
1.09 million x Al Gore’s excessive consumption of more than 232 average US HHs = 252,880,000 *
*I am erring in Gore’s favor as I can only assume for an excessive energy using ultra rich hypocrite Al Gore uses less energy than the average ultra rich person who would consequently drive the totals higher. Also HHs aren’t the same 1:1 ratio of people to people as HHs by definition usually contain more than one person and multiple ultra rich people might be living in the same HH. However you’ll forgive me the flawed math just as you would forgive Mr. Gore and his psuedo science slide show.
With Jeremie Math, 1.09 million people use the same energy as 252 million people or 83% of the US population. So when large corporations like NBC/GE and liberal, enviromental wingnuts start complaining about the dire effects coming in the future due to global warming, take heed. We have our work cut out in trying to conserve enough energy to make up the likes of Al Gore and his friends.
