Al Gore's House
A Freakin Mazing !!!
He's rich, what do you expect? He's from a long line of rich politicians. Google "bush compound" for comparison.
ahhh but he is supposed to be Mr. nobel prize super Tree hugger ...
He don't walk the walk !!!
I read a thing on there that said Gores house was one of the greenest houses in the country. While most houses were operating at 30% he was at 11%. Dont see where you're going with this.
"If we truly believe that we are all equal, then we should live together, too."
- John Edwards
This is Mr. Edwards 28,200 square foot home in Chapel Hill, North Carolina. To my knowledge, he hasn't invited a single poverty stricken person to "live together" with him.
I try real hard to help the "poverty Stricken " but Most of them are Mentally Ill and or drug addicts ... To provide a few hundred dollars of aid It ends up costing Thousands ...
Broken windows , Thefts ,,, Late Night Begging .... Threats ! ...
I just spent 16 hours in classes & many more studying to become a "LEED AP" which is a Green Building Accredited Professional. Now he can have a "green" building by several means with reduction in energy use one part of it, but the caveat is, the reduction % is based of what his compound would use with normal fixtures vs. low/reduced energy fixtures. Follow me?
It is a load of BS to make people feel better (IMHO with a house that large). Granted he is doing better but still burns through many many more resources and you, me or my next door neighbor.
I dont know. Read for yourself.
Al Gore Makes His Mansion Greener
The Associated Press reports that former Vice President and current Nobel Price-winning global-warming prophet Al Gore has greened up his Nashville mansion:
Al Gore, who was criticized for high electric bills at his Tennessee mansion, has completed a host of improvements to make the home more energy efficient, and a building-industry group has praised the house as one of the nation’s most environmentally friendly. The former vice president has installed solar panels, a rainwater-collection system and geothermal heating. He also replaced all incandescent lights with compact fluorescent or light-emitting diode bulbs.
“Short of tearing it down and staring anew, I don’t know how it could have been rated any higher,” said Kim Shinn of the U.S. Green Building Council, which gave the house its second-highest rating for sustainable design.
Gore’s improvements cut the home’s summer electrical consumption by 11 percent compared with a year ago, according to utility records reviewed by The Associated Press. Most Nashville homes used 20 percent to 30 percent more electricity during the same period because of a record heat wave.
Nice to see that someone whose been talking for years like its a crisis has finally started acting like its a crisis.
