Al Gore's speech in Bali yesterday reminded RidesAPaleHorse of another angry speech maker. That speechifier would get angry at people who disagreed with his visions he had for the future.
He was a big environmentalist, too.
Al Gore savaged the US government’s “obstructing” attitude and urged delegates at the UN conference on climate change to ignore Washington if necessary to pursue the “moral imperative” of a new global regime.Al Gore told the world what he thinks about the United States yesterday in Bali.
“My country is principally responsible for obstructing progress here in Bali,” the former US vice-president told 2,000 of the 12,000 people attending the conference on Thursday. “[But] over the next two years the United States is going to be somewhere it is not now.”
We have the good taste not to say what we think of Al Gore.
Okay, so you might be able to guess.
About Al Gore's mansion's energy use.
Gore’s mansion, located in the posh Belle Meade area of Nashville, consumes more electricity every month than the average American household uses in an entire year, according to the Nashville Electric Service (NES).
The average household in America consumes 10,656 kilowatt-hours (kWh) per year, according to the Department of Energy. In 2006, Gore devoured nearly 221,000 kWh—more than 20 times the national average.
Last August alone, Gore burned through 22,619 kWh—guzzling more than twice the electricity in one month than an average American family uses in an entire year.
We didn't hear the entire Gore speech from Bali yesterday.
Was there anything about environmentalist mansions in the Nashville area mentioned?
We didn't think so.
