Need some Dirt on Gore...

So I know Al Gore is up to no good somewhere, I mean besides the private jet fuel and twenty minutes running the air condition in the driveway in his SUV... Yeah he's a hypocrite, we know it...but what is he really up to? Save the environment you say...NO, his own actions and those of his family prove he does not care about the environment so what is Al Gore's Master Plan? Question of the day and 5 points for a correct answer....

Gore’s Tennessee home, located in the Nashville suburb of Belle Meade, recently completed an exhausting renovation, bringing it entirely up to green standards, even going beyond in most cases.
The renovations included installing a geothermal heating system, adding a rainwater-collection system, and installing solar panels to offset energy consumption. He also replaced all light bulbs in the house with compact fluorescent and diode bulbs, to really drive the point home (we even heard he used these type bulbs on his Xmas tree as well!).

The updates contributed to an 11 percent drop in home energy consumption during the summer (when most Nashville houses report a 25-30% rise).

Additionally, the AP reported:

“Short of tearing it down and staring anew, I don’t know how it could have been rated any higher,” said Kim Shinn of the U.S. Green Building Council, which gave the house its second-highest rating for sustainable design.

In our opinion, it’s an impressive feat, considering the house is more than 80 years old.

Earlier in the year, several groups attempted to attack Gore for excessive energy consumption at the house, but the attacks were unfounded, as he was undergoing a first renovation to the house.

In addition, Gore balances 100 percent of his home electricity usage by investing in renewable energy such as wind and solar power.

Bravo Al … thanks for leading by example !
