Al Gore’s Massive Energy Consumption

Al Gore’s Massive Energy Consumption

Global warming profiteer Al Gore’s An Convenient Sequel is currently showing in theaters, making this an opportune time to examine the lifestyle of the self-righteous crusader who demands that we dramatically lower our standard of living so as not to offend the planet with harmless carbon emissions:

In just this past year, Gore burned through enough energy to power the typical American household for more than 21 years, according to a new report by the National Center for Public Policy Research. The former vice president consumed 230,889 kilowatt hours (kWh) at his Nashville residence, which includes his home, pool and driveway entry gate electricity meters. A typical family uses an average of 10,812 kWh of electricity per year, according to the U.S. Energy Information Administration. …

Last September alone, Gore devoured 30,993 kWh of electricity. That’s enough to power 34 average American homes for a month. Over the last 12 months, Gore used more electricity just heating his outdoor swimming pool than six typical homes use in a year.

When the original A Convenient Lie came out, Gore was ridiculed for his Godzilla-sized carbon footprint. He vowed to mend his ways, ostentatiously blowing over a quarter $million greenifying his Nashville mansion. As always with these sanctimonious gestures, it is unlikely the polar bears will notice much difference. For example, he put in solar panels…

Those 33 solar panels generate about 12,000 kWh of electricity a year – way more than enough energy to power a typical American household. Gore is such an enormous energy hog, however, that his gigantic rooftop solar array produces just 5.7 percent of the electricity he uses in his home, or enough to power his home for a measly 21 days a year.

Gore spends $22,000 per year on energy for his Nashville residence (he also owns two others), the vast majority of which is generated by the Tennessee Valley Authority’s nuclear, coal, and natural gas plants. Yet he has been brazenly lying to the media that his mansion uses 100% renewable energy.

If moonbats can swallow this hypocritical blowhard’s shtick, they can convince themselves of anything whatsoever.

His power bills will send chills up your spine. Via Politifake.
