    Default FRESH OFF OSCAR WIN FOR BEST DOCUMENTARY

    POWER: GORE MANSION USES 20X AVERAGE HOUSEHOLD; CONSUMPTION INCREASE AFTER 'TRUTH'
    Mon Feb 26 2007 17:16:14 ET

    The Tennessee Center for Policy Research, an independent, nonprofit and nonpartisan research organization committed to achieving a freer, more prosperous Tennessee through free market policy solutions, issued a press release late Monday:



    Last night, Al Gore’s global-warming documentary, An Inconvenient Truth, collected an Oscar for best documentary feature, but the Tennessee Center for Policy Research has found that Gore deserves a gold statue for hypocrisy.

    Gore’s mansion, [20-room, eight-bathroom] located in the posh Belle Meade area of Nashville, consumes more electricity every month than the average American household uses in an entire year, according to the Nashville Electric Service (NES).

    In his documentary, the former Vice President calls on Americans to conserve energy by reducing electricity consumption at home.

    The average household in America consumes 10,656 kilowatt-hours (kWh) per year, according to the Department of Energy. In 2006, Gore devoured nearly 221,000 kWh—more than 20 times the national average.

    Last August alone, Gore burned through 22,619 kWh—guzzling more than twice the electricity in one month than an average American family uses in an entire year. As a result of his energy consumption, Gore’s average monthly electric bill topped $1,359.

    Since the release of An Inconvenient Truth, Gore’s energy consumption has increased from an average of 16,200 kWh per month in 2005, to 18,400 kWh per month in 2006.

    Gore’s extravagant energy use does not stop at his electric bill. Natural gas bills for Gore’s mansion and guest house averaged $1,080 per month last year.

    “As the spokesman of choice for the global warming movement, Al Gore has to be willing to walk to walk, not just talk the talk, when it comes to home energy use,” said Tennessee Center for Policy Research President Drew Johnson.

    In total, Gore paid nearly $30,000 in combined electricity and natural gas bills for his Nashville estate in 2006.

    Well of course - he can't stop watching his own documentary! "Party at the Gore's house! Wait, he's screening that again? Nevermind!"

    Yes, because as we all know, he did invent the internet didn't he? There is hypocrisy on both sides of the political fence. Democrat, Republican, what's the difference? In my opinion, there hasn't been much of a difference for a long time. I saw Algore's film and I have to say, it did change my mind on the validity of global warming, it's very hard to deny the evidence that he presented. But worthy of an oscar, I think not. Just for curiosity's sake, I wonder how much electricity the average concert consumes?

    In trying to turn this from an Al Gore bashing thread...

    I haven't seen An Inconvenient Truth. I'm curious, but it's on that list of about 9,000 films I'd like to watch but haven't yet. I'd like to present this angle--a chicken-or-egg question...

    There has been profound and major movement lately in addressing the issues of emissions, pollution, renewable energy, and the effect of all on the earth. Is An Inconvenient Truth a leader or catalyst in bring those things to the fore, or is it along for the ride? Its win at the Oscars certainly demonstrates that some in the mainstream mean to take those things seriously.

    Bingo..... I don't want to hear anyone tell me to quit using my conviences (SUV, power, and such) and then get in their limos or jets. Do you think anyone of those people that went to the Oscars went in a Hybrid?

    Leo Di Caprio probably did. He is a very green individual.
