As you’ve probably heard, Al Gore bent over backwards to make his home more “green,” and this somehow caused his energy consumption to go up by 10%.
The problem seems to be that, even though all the CFLs have been installed and more trees have been planted, Al’s bullshit machine runs on fuel-oil and it’s cranked up to 100% capacity, 24/7 — and that’s the last thing Gore’s ever going to turn off.
How much longer are some people going to keep taking this bloated, hypocritical snake-oil salesman seriously?
The article linked above says that GoreÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s home burned through 213,210 kilowatt-hours of electricity, enough to power 232 average American households for a month.
This monstrous energy usage has earned Gore the “Clark W. Griswold, Jr. Power Hog Award” for 2008. No more calls please, we have our winner.
Al Gore could better understand his skeptics if he only would study “Doug’s Law #43”: “People will be more prone to doubt your warning that the sky is falling if your every other action implies that you deny the existence of gravity”.
Incidentally, “Doug’s Law #44” is, “Don’t refer to your own laws in the third person.” This advice is heeded in “My Law #45.”
