Recently Al Gore released the “documentary” An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth To Power, the follow-up to his green propaganda film of 2006.
The original film was rife with apocalyptic predictions that didn’t come true, so audiences should expect more of the same in the sequel.
And sadly, people should also expect more laughable hypocrisy from Gore.
Gore warned about doomsday sea levels…then purchased a beach house in San Diego on the water. Now it’s been revealed Gore’s other mansion uses more power in a year than other families consume in decades.
Al Gore has been making the rounds as he touts his new climate propaganda film, An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power. He even likened the issue of climate change to civil rights, saying it’s a matter of right and wrong.
Yet Gore has long been afflicted with the “Do as I say, not as I do” syndrome, particularly considering that the monthly cost to operate his mansion pool far exceeds that of an average American family’s entire electricity consumption for years. IJR summarizes some key findings about Gore’s energy consumption documented by the National Center for Public Policy Research:
Al Gore resides in a 10,070-square-foot Colonial-style home in the posh Belle Meade section of Nashville, the eighth-wealthiest neighborhood in America according to the U.S. Census Bureau.
The past year, Gore’s home energy use averaged 19,241 kilowatt-hours (kWh) every month, compared to the U.S. household average of 901 kWh per month.
• Gore guzzles more electricity in one year than the average American family uses in 21 years.
• In September of 2016, Gore’s home consumed 30,993 kWh in just one month — as much energy as a typical American family burns in 34 months.
• During the past 12 months, Gore devoured 66,159 kWh of electricity just heating his pool. That is enough energy to power six average U.S. households for a year.
Gore has been one of the most flagrant hypocrites (alongside Leonardo DiCaprio, perhaps) when it comes to the issue of climate change. Of course we begrudge no one their mansion. The issue is that if a person is going to become the figurehead of an entire movement, one might be able to take them more seriously if they actually walk the walk.
When Gore ran for president in 2000, he had a “meager” net worth between $750,000 and $1.9 million.
Since selling his network Current TV to Al Jazeera (a news network controlled by the Qatari government, a state sponsor of terror) and profiteering off climate change fears, Gore is worth roughly a quarter billion dollars.
People should view the green agenda with skepticism. Environmentalists have been predicting the cataclysm for decades because it pays to do so.
Hey, these posh Tennessee mansions and $8.9 million beach estates don’t pay for themselves.
