    Default Two Houses...wow!

    House #1 A 20 room mansion (not including 8 bathrooms) heated by natural gas. Add on a pool (and a pool house) and a separate guest house, all heated by gas. In one month this residence consumes more energy than the average American household does in a year. The average bill for electricity and natural gas runs over $2400 per month. In natural gas alone, this property consumes more than 20 times the national average for an American home. This house is not situated in a Northern or Midwestern "snow belt" area. It's in the South.



    House #2
    Designed by an architecture professor at a leading national university. This house incorporates every "green" feature current home construction can provide. The house is 4,000 square feet (4 bedrooms) and is nestled on a high prairie in the American southwest. A central closet in the house holds geothermal heat-pumps drawing ground water through pipes sunk 300 feet into the ground.

    The water (usually 67 degrees F) heats the house in the winter and cools it in the summer. The system uses no fossil fuels such as oil or natural gas and it consumes one-quarter electricity required for a conventional heating/cooling system. Rainwater from the roof is collected and funneled into a 25,000 gallon underground cistern. Wastewater from showers, sinks and toilets goes into underground purifying tanks and then into the cistern. The collected water then irrigates the land surrounding the house. Surrounding flowers and shrubs native to the area enable the property to blend into the surrounding rural landscape.

    ~~~~~
    HOUSE #1 is outside of Nashville, Tennessee; it is the abode of the "environmentalist " Al Gore.

    HOUSE #2 is on a ranch near Crawford, Texas; it is the residence the of the President of the United States, George W. Bush.

    An "inconvenient truth."

    I sure hope this gets passed to everyone! And, yes ... I DID check Snopes prior to forwarding it.

    Yeah I read about that in I think Time last year. It was pretty funny, don't worry though all you liberals, Al Gore is buying Carbon Credits to offset his carbon footprint, and no matter what GB does he is the devil.

    Let's see Al green up his pad...... He's such a dumbass he'll probably just paint the place green and say the house is green.

    Of course Gore's house consumes a lot of energy...I mean, the man needs some heavy-duty power to keep inventing things like "the internet"

    Wasn't this news like a year ago?

    While Al Gore may come off a hypocrite, your really going to sit here and defend George Bush on anything?

    His Crawford ranch only has all of that because he probably cant get utilities out there.

    Let's not go painting our great, wonderful leader as a friend of the environment.

    If 'you can't get utilities' out in the country, you dig a septic tank for $3500.00 and be done with it. Doing what The President did here is for more than just convience.

    Never does. Always someone here to bash Bush. This message board full of grown, mature adults that think nothing but simple, honest truths.

    I think Repubtards are fundamentalist whackos and that calling America the Great Satan is being kind, but I can appreciate something like this. Al Gore is a hypocrite scumbag. Most Dems and Repubs are equally worthless shitstains in my eyes. And hey Sammy Hagar might be a repub but he's a good human being, misguided as he may be.
