If you’ve been on earth long, you’re familiar with Al Gore’s wagging finger in our faces about the energy we use, our impact on the environment, and oh yes, that boogie monster global warming.
You would expect someone so concerned, so convicted about our planet and our “responsible” use of resources would be the epitome of environmental responsibility, right? Think again.
Did you know that President Bush’s house in Texas is more environmentally friendly than Gore’s?
Here’s what a NewsMax article from a year ago reported:
An April 2001 article in USA Today described the president’s 4,000-square-foot single-story limestone house in Crawford as an ‘eco-friendly haven.’
‘Wastewater from showers, sinks and toilets goes into purifying tanks underground – one tank for water from showers and bathroom sinks, which is so-called ‘gray water,’ and one tank for ‘black water’ from the kitchen sink and toilets,’ it said. ‘The purified water is funneled to the cistern with the rainwater.’
In addition, ‘the Bushes installed a geothermal heating and cooling system, which uses about 25 percent of the electricity that traditional heating and air-conditioning systems consume.’
Of Gore’s house, that same article said
…the Tennessee Center for Policy Research (TCPR) charged on Monday that Gore’s mansion in Nashville “consumes more electricity every month than the average American household uses in an entire year.”
Now comes a new ad from the Competitive Enterprise Institute (CEI) which illustrates how Gore lives high on the energy “hog” while expecting us “little people,” including those struggling to get out of poverty, to bite the bullet. Are the little people saving energy and resources so Al Gore and his privileged elites can use more?
This ad focuses on the impact that Al Gore’s proposed energy restrictions would have on the world’s poor, and highlights the hypocrisy of Mr. Gore’s own high-energy lifestyle.
