Democrats complain of climate change, pass laws to reduce emissions, all the while refusing to practice what they preach.

Al Gore is America’s leading politician when it comes to climate change, spending all his time making documentaries in order to educate the world about the perceived dangers of global warming. Although Gore presents an environmentally friendly front the truth is that he uses an outrageous amount of electricity on a daily basis in order to power the Nashville mansion he lives in alone. Don’t let the solar panels fool you, even with them Gore still uses ten times the amount of energy a normal American family consumes.

Al Gore’s net worth has swelled to $200 million off of profits he has earned from his climate change rhetoric, including a hefty speakers fee, large global events, celebrity cruises and book and movie deals.

However, based on new research by the National Center for Public Policy Research, a conservative think tank, Gore will need to save all that money just to pay the electrical bills for his Nashville mansion. Gore owns three homes, but his main residence is a 20-room gated mansion in one of the richest neighborhoods in the country.

According to National Center for Public Policy Research:

Al Gore resides in a 10,070-square-foot Colonial-style home in the posh Belle Meade section of Nashville, the eighth-wealthiest neighborhood in America according to the U.S. Census Bureau.

The home, which was built in 1915, contains 20 rooms — including five bedrooms, eight full bathrooms and two half-baths. Gore purchased the property, including the home and the surrounding 2.09 acre lot, in 2002 for $2.3 million.

In 2010, Gore announced that he and wife Tipper were divorcing after 40 years of marriage. According to media speculation, Tipper likely lives in the $8.9 million California home the couple purchased weeks before the separation. The Gores have four grown children who no longer live at home. That leaves the former vice president as presumably the only occupant of the home, making his energy consumption even more staggering.

• The past year, Gore’s home energy use averaged 19,241 kilowatt-hours (kWh) every month, compared to the U.S. household average of 901 kWh per month.

• Gore guzzles more electricity in one year than the average American family uses in 21 years.

What a complete hypocrite! If Gore were really concerned about the environment why doesn’t he live in a single person home in order to reduce his carbon footprint?
