An Inconvenient Truth, Indeed.

Radon360 (951529) writes "The Tennessee Center for Policy Research has checked into Al Gore's carbon footprint with the Nashville Electric Service, and the results were not very promising. It turns out, according to their records, Gore's mansion and guest house consumed twice as much energy in one month than the average American household consumes in a year. Energy use at the Gore homestead has also risen markedly after the release of the movie "An Inconvenient Truth". While electrical consumption was more than 20 times average, natural gas consumption is well above average as well.

It appears that Al Gore has an inconvenient truth of his own."
