Al Gore he who invented the internet (Ya Sure)

The Gore Story appears to be true but I can't find anything on the

Al Gore’s Personal Energy Use Is His Own "Inconvenient Truth"
Gore’s home uses more than 20 times the national average

Last night, Al Gore’s global-warming documentary, An Inconvenient
Truth, collected an Oscar for best documentary feature, but the Tennessee
Center for Policy Research has found that Gore deserves a gold statue for
hypocrisy.

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).

In his documentary, the former Vice President calls on Americans to
conserve energy by reducing electricity consumption at home.

The average household in America consumes 10,656 kilowatt-hours (kWh)
per year, according to the Department of Energy. In 2006, Gore devoured
nearly 221,000 kWh—more than 20 times the national average.

Last August alone, Gore burned through 22,619 kWh—guzzling more than
twice the electricity in one month than an average American family uses in an entire year. As a result of his energy consumption, Gore’s average
monthly electric bill topped $1,359.

Since the release of An Inconvenient Truth, Gore’s energy consumption
has increased from an average of 16,200 kWh per month in 2005, to 18,400
kWh per month in 2006.

Gore’s extravagant energy use does not stop at his electric bill.
Natural gas bills for Gore’s mansion and guest house averaged $1,080 per
month last year.

"As the spokesman of choice for the global warming movement, Al Gore
has to be willing to walk the walk, not just talk the talk, when it comes to
home energy use," said Tennessee Center for Policy Research President Drew
Johnson.

In total, Gore paid nearly $30,000 in combined electricity and natural
gas bills for his Nashville estate in 2006.
