How Big a Fool Are You?

Let me show you. This would apply to any of millions worldwide who think Al Gore is a great guy and good for the environment.

In the past year, Gore’s home burned through 213,210 kilowatt-hours (kWh) of electricity, enough to power 232 average American households for a month.


Since taking steps to make his home more environmentally-friendly last June, Gore devours an average of 17,768 kWh per month –1,638 kWh more energy per month than before the renovations – at a cost of $16,533. By comparison, the average American household consumes 11,040 kWh in an entire year, according to the Energy Information Administration.

In the wake of becoming the most well-known global warming alarmist, Gore won an Oscar, a Grammy and the Nobel Peace Prize. In addition, Gore saw his personal wealth increase by an estimated $100 million thanks largely to speaking fees and investments related to global warming hysteria.

    "I thought wingers…"

    Thanks for so adequately answering the question.

    Wow… what a tool. He was on some discovery special too. That's funny.

    So? The Gores are richer and reside in a larger home than most of us. Big deal. Find a rich Republican (shouldn't be hard to do) and compare apples to apples.

    I thought wingers were supposed to admire rich people. Unless the rich people are Democrats, I guess.

    Not terribly surprising. I've seen very few supposedly "environmentally minded" people who's policies and practices are actually environmentally sound. In fact, theres almost an inverse exponential relationship between how much someone preaches about environmental salvation and the actual environmental benefits of their preaching and practices. Gore is one of the worst. He's just a very successful scam artist

    It must be wonderful to have enough money to burn through as much electricity in one year as I make in 4 years. At the same time, I don't think I would do that even if I did have the money.
