Al Gore: His Home Consumes More Electricity in One Month Than Average US Household Consumes in One Year

Al Gore

“A man’s commitment to his beliefs is best measured by what he does behind the closed doors of his own home.”

“Al Gore is a hypocrite and a fraud when it comes to his commitment to the environment, judging by his home energy consumption.”

— Drew Johnson, President of the Tennessee Center for Policy Research.

In a report released by the Tennessee Center for Policy Research June 17, 2008 it was released that in the past year, Gore’s home lit, burned, cooked, cooled, heated and motored through 213,210 kilowatt-hours (kWh) of electricity, enough to power 232 average American households for a month.

Since taking steps to make his home more environmentally-friendly last June, Gore consumes 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. That’s a 10% increase in electricity consumption. By comparison, the average American household consumes 11,040 kWh in an entire year, according to the Energy Information Administration. Gore’s household information was obtained via a public records request to the Nashville Electric Service.

The Tennessee Center for Policy Research claims that Al Gore is exploiting public concern about the environment and global warming to make a profit while he does not practice what he preaches. Al Gore’s personal wealth increased by an estimated $100 million largely from speaking fees and investments related to global warming hysteria.

Former Vice President Al Gore has also recently been criticized by Weather Channel Founder John Coleman for scaring the public and policy makers with falsely and fraudulently warnings of the world of a global warming — a global warming that Coleman says is not happening. Coleman says the earth has a cyclic pattern of warming and cooling that is related to solar activity (sun spots) and that carbon dioxide emissions are insignificant in causing any global warming.
