    Environment campaigner Al Gore is using more electricity than ever despite pledging to cut consumption more than a year ago, a libertarian research group claims.

    According to the Tennessee Centre for Policy Research, the annual electricity usage at the former US Vice President's large home in Nashville has risen by 10 per cent.
    Mr Gore's environmental activism inspired the Oscar-winning documentary An Inconvenient Truth.
    But the TCPR branded him a "hypocrite" in February 2007 after discovering that his eight-bathroom house in the Tennessee city consumed nearly 221,000 kilowatt-hours of electricity in the previous year – more than 20 times the national average.....

    .....However, the TPCR has got hold of his electricity bill again, this time comparing electricity consumption between the 12 months before June 2007, when it says he installed his new technology, and the year since then.
    It says the figures show the Gore residence uses an average of 17,768 kWh per month –1,638 kWh more energy per month than before the renovations.
    By comparison, the average American household consumes 11,040 kWh in an entire year, according to the Energy Information Administration.
    Drew Johnson, the TCPR's president, said: "A man's commitment to his beliefs is best measured by what he does behind the closed doors of his own home."


    The article goes on to say that Al Gore says "liar liar, pants on fire".....

    If he really believed in global warming and lived by what he tells the rest of us we should, then his electric usage would be going down drastically. Proof that even the biggest global warming proponets don't really beleive it.

    Oh, I think he believes it; he just thinks that he is above having to do anythink himself to combat it.

    Giving up - whatever - is for the common man, not the elite!

    Just like most of the liberal elite that --"know what's best for us peons"--! (no matter whether R, D, or I)
