I love this, and it is true!!:

TWO HOUSES IN AMERICA. . . .

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 area 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 Oscar winning film maker) Al Gore. wtf

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. Shocked

Al Gore has the right idea on Global Warming, but for some reason, I just can't stand the guy.
He has one rule for us regular people and another rule for him and his friends.

Great post SwampFox

Part of Al Gore's double standard on the evironment gets even weirder. He is part of the Live Earth concerts that are going to have a concert on all 7 continents. Yes that includes antartica. My students brought me the information in the government class I teach and it talks about a concert in Antartica, what I want to know is who are they going to perform for the researchers there or the animals.
Live Earth - The Concert for a Climate in Crisis

7/7/07

Concerts on all 7 continents:

Shanghai
Sydney
Johannesburg
London
Brazil - TBD
Japan - TBD
United States - TBD
Antarctica - TBD Shocked Shocked Shocked Shocked Shocked

Al Gore is wrong, deceitful and a fear monger...Man has little to do with "Global Warming". You must remember that plants survive and need on CO2. Then they make oxygen for us. And it's a natural phanominum of the earth's cycles. By the way a global warming procedes an ice age. Take a look at earth's past (and I do mean paaaast) history. The earth has been warmer then they (Al baby) has predicted and survived. All it means is that greenland, northern Russia and Canada will be providing a large part of the mans needed food and so will a lot of other cold climates as they warm up...Sooo...You may have to move if you are a farmer or want a warmer clime to live in...Don't be taken in by this fear tactic. Yes...I am for improved air quality, but we shouldn't have to pay for it as "Al Baby" wants us to. He's an extreme left Democrate...Remember?
Not to mention a hypercrit...

I stand corrected.
You make very valid points Bushmaster.
Bottom line, the guy is a bum.

The polar ice caps on Mars are melting as well, the radiation levels from the sun have increased if you fallowed tech magazines a few years back there was a huge scare of losing satalite communication from interferance that has been compensated for since, the ozone layer is repairing itself since more radiation means more ozone production!

Remember when the Vikings first settled Greenland they didn't settle it on the ice they settled it on the ground, hense why they get stuck digging out some of thouse old viliages, so what does that tell you ?? There was no ice there even 1000 years ago!

Global warming, Global cooling its all a big scam. Smile

Bushmaster: I remember my environmental geology teacher telling us that this is the beinging of a cool down.
I do like some of the stuff like cleaner air, but that's mainly because I'm allergic to sulfa and well that's a big thing in smog.
I just really want to know why antartica is getting a concert.

Tell us what you really think Bushy. LOL Gore has point but, it needs to be taken in perspective as you have done. All of us play a part in conservation and pollution; whether it be hunting, traveling, living, etc. So much of this boils down to common sense. Coastal areas have been inundated with floods and hurricanes for most of my 53 years. Have the people moved? No, they rebuild with tax dollars. Have we provided incentive to move to higher ground? Not in my lifetime. Should we be looking to a solution; yes. I'm not sure what the solution may look like but at least we are talking about it.
