You know, folks, Algore is even more of an energy Bigfoot than he was last year. A year ago, the Tennessee Center for Policy Research revealed that Gore’s home gobbled up more energy every month than the average American household uses in a year. So Gore publicly claimed that he was going to make his home “more green,” in line with his rhetoric.
A year later, NewsBusters has revisited the subject — and guess what? Not only did Gore’s “green renovations” fail to bring energy costs down at his mansion; the former Vice Perpetrator actually increased his energy use over ten percent! In the last year, Algore has used over 200,000 kilowatt-hours of electricity. That’s enough power to run 232 average American homes for a month.
All the nonsense about “carbon footprints” that Algore spouts — all those diatribes urging you to reduce your CO2 output by getting rid of your SUV, changing your lightbulbs or face imminent doom is nothing more than hot air. Life inside the Gore household is typical do-as-I-say, not-as-I-do liberalism.
With decades of holier-than-thou political posturing, self-promotion, and legions of incompetent journalists acting as his PR army, Algore has transformed himself from a run-of-the-mill political hack, to the face of the manmade global warming hoax.
But generations from now, when historians look back, they’ll wonder how a charlatan like Gore pulled off this hoax — and why so many of you fell for it. Mark my words. Don’t doubt me.
