Gore has been criticized for excessive home energy usage at his residence in Tennessee. His electricity usage is reportedly 20 times higher than the average American household.

The funny thing is that he flys all over the world in a private jet, which dwarfs his home energy use, yet that never seems to get mentioned.

Sorry Big Finn I could not stomach watching anymore BS and Lies from Carbonist Algore

I still think he has jumped the Shark...and has pissed off real scientist and their work...this is War

I benifit a great deal from his lies to mfg market and sell many energy savings devices and systems for many industries...my goal is to use technology to save cash and build Capital for operation and purchase of equipment, cars trucks and industry without Govmint Laws needed by the buyer to justify the need or usfulness for the energy Saving Products...

The truth is, America's mature industries have hidden behind
unions threat and government subsidy to do the R&D and investment in better management, and equipment to lead their competition and win the day with good ole Southern Know How!

From the opening speech:

Lastly, the cost: Global warming is now big business. Thousands of individuals and even some Fortune 100 companies stand to make tens of billions of dollars.

I was on the floor opposing the ’93 Clinton-Gore tax increase of $32 billion, but the cost of Kyoto and other CO2 reduction schemes are estimated to be over $300 billion, ten times the cost of your ’93 tax increase. And who’s paying for it? Those on fixed incomes and the poor, who as a percent of their monthly budget spend five times more on energy than the average household.

Largest tax increase in history – 10 times Clinton-Gore of ’93 and the poor pay for it… and the science isn’t there. We just can’t do that to America, Mr. Vice President… and we’re not gonna.

Does anyone else feel that Gore has taken a page out of movie marketing? Now, you too can own your very own carbon offset just like the savior of the planet.

When is the last time you took Al Gore serious -- check one:

1. When he said the internal combustion engine was the most harmful invention of man?

2. When he said he invented the internet?

3. when he said the Earth is heating up?

4. When he denied that taking up a collection in a Hindu temple was a fund raiser?

5. When he applied for an extension of his tobacco farm subsidy?

Well, I, for one, am glad to follow Algore's principles. I am going to drive l0 mph under the speed limit all day tomorrow; then the next day I will get to drive l0 mph over the speed limit, and my carbon credits will be even. Now I just have to figure out what to say when that nice cop stops me.

None of those. It was the last time he picked an accent and stuck to it.

"I have a new moniker for Gore... a Carbonista."

JR - Does that go in the FR dictionary for 2007?

But grade schoolers cannot read "Animal Farm",

Someone should ask Gore how many extra planets we'd need if we all wanted to live as he does?

Worthy of a Barf Alert right there

Not at all. That was just what is known as "the set up."

I am sure that Gore fell for it, hook, line and sinker.

I've got to say that there is no more petty person in the Senate than Boxer.

Between her and Feinstein, I am ashamed of my 'representation' in the Senate.

Al Gore refused to take a “Personal Energy Ethics Pledge” today to consume no more energy than the average American household.

Algore won't adhere to the demands he places on everyone else dwelling on the planet? That isn't very honorable. (Neither is making untold profits scaring little kids with some science-fiction propaganda film.) It sounds like only rich, fatass RATS will be able to pollute to their hearts content - eh? So much for your glaciers...
