    So much for Al Gore walking the walk when he lectures us on the dangers of global warming


    LOOK OVER THE DESCRIPTIONS OF THE FOLLOWING TWO HOUSES AND SEE IF YOU
    CAN TELL WHICH BELONGS TO AN ENVIRONMENTALIST.

    HOUSE # 1:
    A 20-room mansion (not including 8 bathrooms) heated by natural gas.
    Add on a pool (and a pool house) and a separate guest house all heated
    by gas. In ONE MONTH ALONE this mansion consumes more energy than the
    average American household in an ENTIRE YEAR. The average bill for
    electricity and natural gas runs over $2,400.00 per month. In natural
    gas alone (which last time we checked was a fossil fuel), this property
    consumes more than 20 times the national average for an American home.
    This house is not in a northern or Midwestern "snow belt," either. It's
    in the South.



    HOUSE # 2:
    Designed by an architecture professor at a leading national university,
    this house incorporates every "green" feature current home construction
    can provide. The house contains only 4,000 square feet (4 bedrooms) and
    is nestled on arid high prairie in the American southwest. A central
    closet in the house holds geothermal heat pumps drawing ground water
    through pipes sunk 300 feet into the ground. The water (usually 67
    degrees F.) heats the house in winter and cools it in summer. The
    system uses no fossil fuels such as oil or natural gas, and it consumes
    25% of the electricity required for a conventional heating/cooling
    system. Rainwater from the roof is collected and funneled into a 25,000
    gallon underground cistern. Wastewater from showers, sinks and toilets
    goes into underground purifying tanks and then into the cistern. The
    collected water then irrigates the land surrounding the house. Flowers
    and shrubs native to the are! a blend the property into the surrounding
    rural landscape.



    HOUSE # 1 (20 room energy guzzling mansion) is outside of
    Nashville,Tennessee. It is the abode of that renowned environmentalist
    (and filmmaker) Al Gore.


    HOUSE # 2 (model eco-friendly house) is on a ranch near Crawford,
    Texas. Also known as "the Texas White House," it is the private
    residence of the President of the United States, George W. Bush.

    house #1 was built in an era where ecology, environmentalism, and energy efficiency were not considered. It is being refitted to be as energy efficient as possible.

    wrong. He is spending a great deal of money retrofitting his home to become more energy efficient. Do you think it would be more environmentally friendly to tear the old place down and erect a new home, or retrofit the existing home?

    Al Gore is a huge hypocrite. He latched on to the environment to push his public profile up. Its been proven he doesnt live what he preaches

    no. it has not been "proven". keep up the slander. Answer my question:

    Do you think it would be more environmentally friendly to tear the old place down and erect a new home, or retrofit the existing home?

    All still burns 20 times the energy of an average American home (one of his 4)
    still rides in private jets, and take his limos

    Libs seldom live their lives as they tell the rest of us to live ours

    like I said. it is an old home. he is retrofitting it. why not answer my question?

    expecting wealthy successful people who care about the environment to live in cardboard boxes is faux outrage.

    Did you read Al's books on global warming and conservation?

    I wonder how many trees they had to chop down to print them
