glad someone else picked up that little gem of trickery.
can we please have the scales of the houses he's being compared to?
ARe they single home flats with 1 lightbulb and tv?
As someone said before, is there any compensation in this
'comparison' for renewable energy?
These people actively deny global warming, its cause and those that advocate change.
TCPR scholar Charles Van Eaton also serves as a trustee for the Lincoln Heritage Institute (LHI). The institute's "About LHI" page declares: "We ... cannot stand idly by and allow ... destructive environmental activism ... to become an accepted way of life in America."
Martin D. Kennedy, another TCPR scholar, runs the blog TennEconomics. On November 29, 2006, Kennedy wrote: "We don't know if fossil fuels lead to warming and if so, how damaging it is."
Simple economics while finding clean alternatives. This says to me that Al Gore is putting his money where his mouth is, and hardly is snake oil. newsbusters.org...
Generation, set up in 2004 by Gore and David Blood, former chief of Goldman Sachs's asset management arm, now holds 16 million Camco shares, Camco said in a statement.
Camco, which has one of the world's largest carbon credit portfolios, works with companies to identify and develop projects that reduce greenhouse gas emissions and then arranges the sale and delivery of carbon credits.
the Gores own three homes: a 10,000-square-foot home in Nashville, Tennessee; a 4,000-square-foot home in Arlington, Virginia (across the Potomac River from Washington, DC); and a third home of undisclosed size in Carthage, Tennessee. Neutral Source has verified the Gores own a 2.1 acre property at 312 Lynnwood Blvd. in the Belle Meade section of Nashville, Tennessee (Parcel ID 11611005600). Its assessed value in January 2005 was $3 million, but we have not been able to validate Schweizer's claims about its size. So we performed a search and found 15 single-family homes on the market in the Gores' Nashville neighborhood with asking prices of $3 million or more. Of the 298 neighborhood properties on the market, only three are listed at $3 million or more. According to MLS data, these houses are 9.727, 7,340, and 9,878 square feet respectively. So we can confirm that it's quite plausible that the Gores' Nashville home is, as Schweizer claims, 10,000 square feet.
Says Bill Turque, his not unfriendly biographer: "Over the years [Gore's] inner circle had become dominated by lawyers and lobbyists immersed in the city's money-and-influence culture." From his first days in office, Gore was a vacuum for money; he made his rich friends much richer, and they then channeled money to him. Whatever he might have done for the afflicted, Gore has done much to comfort the comfortable, enrich the rich, and make the powerful and well-connected still more so.
Gore's career has been studded with people who have shady pasts and engage in practices that skirt the very limits of the law. His first presidential run in 1988 was bankrolled by Nathan Landow, a Maryland millionaire, and a consortium of other rich men eager to invest in a "moderate" Democrat. A heavy donor to Jimmy Carter in the 1976 election, Landow was, Turque says, "a shoo-in for an ambassadorial post until the story of his business relationship with Joe Nesline, a Washington gambler with ties to Meyer Lansky's organization, landed in the papers. Landow was never charged with any wrongdoing . . . [but] would turn up on the margins of several scandals of the Clinton-Gore era." Kenneth Starr, for example, investigated whether Landow might have committed obstruction of justice in "urging . . . Kathleen Willey not to tell [Paula] Jones's lawyers that Clinton had groped her." (Starr never charged Landow.)
Tennessee Center's President Drew Johnson comes straight out of the right's network, coming from Exxon-funded American Enterprise Institute and the right-wing-funded National Taxpayers Foundation.

I've thought for a long time that Al Gore is functionally insane.
He is so out of touch with reality, so "out there", so far gone it's ridiculous.
He is a frightening example of the level a mentally ill person can rise to,
in terms of power and influence.

Gore is a hypocrite. There is no reason why he cant put a solar and wind power set up at his house and use his own electricity. Im going to when I build my new place but its not cause of global warming. Its because I dont want to give any more money to big energy and I dont have to worry about being part of the mass power outages. People should be more self reliant and not on government backed big business. Al Gore is a chump and his words taken with a grain of salt.
