Climate change activist Al Gore isn’t exactly practicing what he preaches. As it turns out, the former vice president used enough electricity for six homes last year just to heat his outdoor swimming pool at his Nashville residence.
In the last year, Gore’s Nashville home used enough energy to power a typical house in America for 21 years, the Daily Caller reported. The National Center for Public Policy Research obtained the numbers through interviews and public records requests with the Nashville Electric Service.
Glenn Beck, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere examined Gore’s hypocrisy on Thursday’s “The Glenn Beck Radio Program.”
Despite a publicized green makeover to his house, Gore in the last year consumed 230,889 kilowatt hours (kWh) at the residence, including electricity for the house, pool and entry gate in the driveway. In contrast, the typical family needs 10,812 kWh of electricity on average per year. While Gore has publicly said his home is completely powered by renewable energy, only about 3 percent of the electricity used at Gore’s Nashville residence comes from renewable energy sources.
“Is this is how you conduct your life, seriously, if you believe in catastrophic global warming?” Pat asked incredulously.
