Back home in Podunkville, Tennessee, Vice President Al Gore is no doubt basking in the Oscar awarded to “An Inconvenient Truth,” the documentary he inspired and in which he starred. But a local free-market think tank is trying to make that very home emblematic of what it deems Gore’s environmental hypocrisy.
After all, if you were trying to lead people to believe that you were the champion of environmentalism, would you flagrantly own a huge mansion that is nowhere close to being energy efficient. Al Gore dropped the ball on this one. You see, you can get all the information you need through the FOIA. (Freedom of Information Act) on just about anyone or anything, especially if it relates to a so-called ‘public servant,’ past or present.
Weird Al Gore’s home had gas and electric bills for the former vice president’s 20-room home and pool house that devoured nearly 221,000 kilowatt-hours in 2006, more than 20 times the national average of 10,656 kilowatt-hours.
Armed with Gore’s utility bills for the last two years, the Tennessee Center for Policy Research charged that Gore’s home devoured the above figures in one year alone.
“If this were any other person with $30,000-a-year in utility bills, I wouldn’t care,” says the Center’s 27-year-old president, Drew Johnson. “But he tells other people how to live and he’s not following his own rules.”
