In the year since Al Gore took steps to make his home more energy-efficient, the former Vice President’s home energy use surged more than 10%, according to the Tennessee Center for Policy Research.
In the past year, Gore’s home burned through 213,210 kilowatt-hours (kWh) of electricity, enough to power 232 average American households for a month.
And Drew, I had to quote from your Facebook message, “Here’s a guy who tells us that if we don’t buy those silly spirally bulbs and to push our thermostats to 81 in July, the Earth will melt like Toht’s face in Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark, but he uses more electricity in one year than I will use in my little cottage in the ghetto in the next 17 years. Literally. I checked my bill.”
Congratulations, Drew! What an asset to the state of Tennessee!
