Al Gore is a Hypocrite!!

The Story of Two Houses

Look over the descriptions of the following two houses and see if you can
tell which belongs to an environmentalist:


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 ALONE this mansion consumes more energy than the average
American household in an ENTIRE YEAR. The average bill for electricity and
natural gas runs over $2,400 per month. In natural gas alone (which last
time we checked was a fossil fuel), this property consumes more than 20 times
the national average for an American home. This house is not in a northern or
Midwestern "snow belt," either. 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 contains only 4,000 square feet (4 bedrooms) and
is nestled on arid 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
winter and cools it in summer. The system uses no fossil fuels such as oil
or natural gas, and it consumes 25% of 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.
Flowers and shrubs native to the area blend the property into the surrounding
rural landscape.

HOUSE # 1 (20 room energy guzzling mansion) is outside of Nashville,
Tennessee. It is the abode of that renowned environmentalist (and
filmmaker)
Al Gore.

HOUSE # 2 (model eco-friendly house) is on a ranch near Crawford,
Texas. Also known as "the Texas White House," it is the private residence
of the President of the United States, George W. Bush.

So whose house is gentler on the environment? Yet another story you
WON'T hear on CNN, CBS, ABC, NBC, MSNBC or read about in the New York Times
or the Washington Post.

Indeed, for Mr. Gore, it's truly "an inconvenient truth."

Mrs. Edwards, "Those rabid, rabid Republicans!" Now, not only does my status as a Christian mean I might be terrorist material, but I am also now rabid. I wonder what's next?

Oh and Joe...leave Ssssteve alone!

Nice work Sssteve. And kudos for the Snopes link. Anything like that I first check Snopes to see if it's legit. I actually wasn't expecting this to be true.

Nice to know our President isn't as eco-hating as the media and libs would like people to believe.

Isn't this the same President who set aside the largest amount of land / sea ever to be protected by the government, near Hawaii? Thousands of acres is now a natural reserve. I hate liberals.

Great post Sssteve! Head on over to my place sometime, I got an anti-gun e-mail from a liberal that I think you'll enjoy.
