Oh, Al! It's as if I'm psychic. Just the other day we were talking about the factors that distract from environmental causes, and his royal greenness himself, Al Gore, and his energy sucking house of eco-horrors came up.
Surely with his big ad campaign with Al Sharpton telling us to green our act, he's made some changes and stopped the energy suck at his own digs . . . right? Uh, no. In fact, quite the opposite. According to the Tennessee Center for Policy Research, Al's energy consumption jumped 10 percent.
His house currently uses enough energy in a year to power 232 regular houses for a month. And this is after he spent $16,533 on eco-upgrades including solar panels, a geothermal system, new light bulbs, and better windows. Oh, and earning about $100 million dollars, a Nobel Prize, an Oscar, and a Grammy for his global warming agenda. Is this latest report a bout of bad luck or a big green monster?
Al. That's not acid rain — you're making the planet cry.
