Actions speak louder

Ex Vice President Al Gore continues to make a mockery of himself in kind of a Jimmy Carter like way. The comparisons between his energy expending home and the home of our current president have all proven true. Now, a Tennessee group is continuing hammer him for continued hypocrisy. His home has apparently has not become any more lean -- neither has his income.
After the Tennessee Center for Policy Research exposed Gore’s massive home energy use, the former Vice President scurried to make his home more energy-efficient. Despite adding solar panels, installing a geothermal system, replacing existing light bulbs with more efficient models, and overhauling the home’s windows and ductwork, Gore now consumes more electricity than before the “green” overhaul.

In the wake of becoming the most well-known global warming alarmist, Gore won an Oscar, a Grammy and the Nobel Peace Prize. In addition, Gore saw his personal wealth increase by an estimated $100 million thanks largely to speaking fees and investments related to global warming hysteria.

“Actions speak louder than words, and Gore’s actions prove that he views climate change not as a serious problem, but as a money-making opportunity,” Johnson said. “Gore is exploiting the public’s concern about the environment to line his pockets and enhance his profile.”

Jessica just picked up a book, "A REALLY Inconvenient Truth". The opening chapter has a political cartoon of Gore getting his power bill and saying, "I want a recount!". Now I get it! 'Better go read the book!
