Electricity Consumption Goes Up In Gore Household

leave a comment »

After touting a global-warming, polar bear killing, energy crisis, Al Gore was shown to be hypocritical in his own lifestyle with a home in Tennessee that was using 20 times more energy than the average home in the United States. Well, after being exposed as an opportunistic greenwashing charlatan, Al Gore made extensive changes to his home. How many polar bears has he saved from extinction? How much energy has he saved the world?

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.

This Nobel Piece Prize winning hypocrite is just like the rest of the environmental Chicken Littles: It’s all about “How do I cash in on global warming scam?”
