Even during Earth Hour. President of the Tennessee Center For Policy Research Drew Johnson takes a Saturday drive by Al Gores during the time most environmentalists went dark:
I pulled up to Als house, located in the posh Belle Meade section of Nashville, at 8:48pm right in the middle of Earth Hour. I found that the main spotlights that usually illuminate his 9,000 square foot mansion were dark, but several of the lights inside the house were on.
In fact, most of the windows were lit by the familiar blue-ish hue indicating that floor lamps and ceiling fixtures were off, but TV screens and computer monitors were hard at work. (In other words, his house looked the way most houses look about 1:45am when their inhabitants are distractedly watching Cheaters or Chelsea Lately reruns.)
The kicker, though, were the dozen or so floodlights grandly highlighting several trees and illuminating the driveway entrance of Gores mansion.
I [kid] you not, my friends, the savior of the environment couldnt be bothered to turn off the gaudy lights that show off his goofy trees.
I got up and turned on every light inside and outside the house at 8:30 last night, much to my wife’s chagrin. She understood the principle involved and went along.
If you were perpetrating the greatest scam and con job against humanity that the world has ever seen, YOU’D LEAVE THE LIGHTS ON TOO!
I wonder if the giant houseboat was up and running......
A two candle-power brain illuminated by two candles. Fitting.
Howie Carr advises politicians (and others in public life) “never wear a hat”, especially one that can make you look goofy. Think John Kerry in the bunny suit.
Great. I turned on every light I had too.
Of course not.
Trees turn light + CO2 into O2. More light = more O2 = less CO2!
He's being helpful, dontcha know...
not sure if that works for artificial light...
Maybe the tree floodlights are actually grow lights, so he can count his trees as carbon credits 24 hours a day.
Yes, his burning fossils fuels doesn’t cause global warming and his turds smell like fresh baked cinnamon muffins, ‘cause he’s just so special.
This guy didn’t get a video! The left will never believe him.
If he’d taken a video they would dispute the time stamp.
I sent the link to Drudge. Hopefully he will put it up later in the afternon.
At this point, EVERYone knows Algoron is an opportunist hypocrite! Even his feckless supporters know it.
Are there photos of this?????
Sheez. Can't he afford a housekeeper with all of those carbon credits he is selling to the loons?
and that big dog takes diesel, not available on center hill lake.
I turned on all the lights from 8 until 10 pm. The neighbors who have brainwashed kids all turned their lights out at the specified time.
Man, I’d like a setup like that to read FR on.
How horriable it must be to be Al Gore!
I’m convinced he’s actually Gort, from “The Day The Earth Stood Still!”
“The eight-foot metal robot accompanies Klaatu, a visitor to Earth from a distant planet, aboard a flying saucer. He does not speak, but uses a beam weapon projected from beneath a visor to vaporize weapons and obstacles. Klaatu described him as being part of an interstellar police force. He claims that the people of the universe constructed numerous robots like Gort and gave them irrevocable powers to respond to violent actions in order to “preserve the peace.” He further claims that “There’s no limit to what [Gort] could do. He could destroy the Earth.”
“”Gort! Klaatu barada nikto!”
In Gore’s defense, and I HATE doing this, those landscaping lights might be solar-powered. You can’t turn ‘em off. My little lights around a monkey-grassed walkway are (is that racist?), it was easier and cheaper than wiring the things.
Al is afraid of the dark!
He could care less, he’s a modern day snake oil salesman who duped many people out of their money and is laughing all the way to the bank.
He has a deep need to promote himself even at the expense of his children.
Hey Al, Go home and take care of your family first, it will pay a lot more than you can ever get as a snake oil salesman.
