Gore’s mansion, located in the posh Belle Meade area of Nashville, consumes more electricity every month than the average American household uses in an entire year, according to the Nashville Electric Service (NES).A spokesperson for Gore does not dispute the data, but insists the Gores are making efforts to reduce their energy consumption by installing solar panels on their home and switching to other renewable sources of energy.
Kalee Kreider, a spokesperson for the Gores, did not dispute the Center's figures, taken as they were from public records. But she pointed out that both Al and Tipper Gore work out of their home and she argued that "the bottom line is that every family has a different carbon footprint. And what Vice President Gore has asked is for families to calculate that footprint and take steps to reduce and offset it."If Kreider was my spokesperson, I'd fire her. Bigfoot Gore can purchase all the "offsets" he wants with the proceeds of his inconvenient fear-mongering film, but he still remains a hypocrite. If the former Vice President really cared about the polar bears, he'd dump the SUV, along with his 20 room mansion with a heated pool, and stop flying around the planet preaching about green house gases.
