Doesn't this say alot about Al Gore? When he put out his eviromental movie this is how his house was to GWB at the time.hmmm

A Tale of Two Houses

House #1
A 20 room mansion (not including 8 bathrooms) heated by natural gas. Add on a pool (and a pool house) and a separate guest house, all heated by gas. In one month this residence consumes more energy than the average American household does in a year. The average bill for electricity and natural gas runs over $2400 per month. In natural gas alone, this property consumes more than 20 times the national average for an American home. This house is not situated in a Northern or Midwestern 'snow belt' area. It's in the South

  • House #2
    Designed by an architecture professor at a leading national university. This house incorporates every 'green' feature current home construction can provide The house is 4,000 square feet (4 bedrooms) and is nestled on a high prairie in the American southwest. A central closet in the house holds geothermal heat-pumps drawing ground water through pipes sunk 300 feet into the ground.

  • The water (usually 67 degrees F) heats the house in the winter and cools it in the summer The system uses no fossil fuels such as oil or natural gas and it consumes one-quarter the electricity required for a conventional heating/cooling system. Rainwater from the roof is collected and funneled into a 25,000 gallon underground cistern. Wastewater from showers, sinks and toilets goes into underground purifying tanks and then into the cistern. The collected water then irrigates the land surrounding the house. Surrounding flowers and shrubs native to the area enable the property to blend into the surrounding rural landscape The heating/cooling system is so efficient that initial plans to install solar panels were canceled

  • HOUSE #1 - is outside of Nashville , TN ;
    it is the abode of the 'Environmentalist' Al Gore.

    HOUSE #2 - is on a ranch near Crawford , TX ;
    it's the residence of former President of the U.S.A., George W. Bush.

    Yes, it's "An inconvenient truth.."

    I sure hope this gets passed to everyone!
    And, yes .... I DID check Snopes prior to forwarding it.

  • VERY fascinating info ! Thank you for it.

    (I doubt that it will improve the opinion of anyone who dislikes Bush or anyone who believes Al Gore's movie about global warming, but it is ALWAYS a GOOD thing to have real facts to shed light on our emotional prejudices ! )

  • It is funny how Al Gore preaches this crap yet he is the one who consumes more energy in a month than I do in a year. Gore owns more than one house so you can imagine the resources this man uses yearly. I know many Republicans who live green and many Dems who preach green but live the opposite. Until someone is living a green life they need to shut up about it.

  • Who gives a rip? This is old news. I have never seen Gore's movie and don't listen to celebs or politicians when looking for facts. I'll stick to listening to scientists and my dad with the masters degree in Earth Science who spends his summers working at Old Faithful. As opposed to the "scientists" who are funded by energy concerns.


    Answer by Friday at 12:54 PM on Jun. 11, 2009

  • My dad is a scientist too. Funny thing is you can find a scientist to who can prove or disprove anything. So no one really knows what is going on. He is independent now has his own firm. He used to work for Mr Gore and said Gore is all about making money he has no love for the environment and he quit when he was asked to lie about certain things. Scientific opinions like everything else can be bought and sold for the right price.
