Those who doubt man-made catastrophic climate change get labeled as “deniers” or “conspiracy kooks” by the Left-wing establishment to make them look bad in the public’s eye. Never do those outlets mention that perhaps there might be problems in the climate model, the interpretation of the data, or even the sheer hypocrisy of some of its top proponents.
According to Fox News, Al Gore’s house uses 21 times more energy than an average American’s house, despite him being the poster boy for man-made climate change. It’s another example of the liberals’ “Do as I say, not as I do” philosophy. The statistic points to the hypocrisy and is outright proof that Gore doesn’t actually believe that the world will end if people keep emitting carbon dioxide.
Former Vice President Al Gore’s estate near Nashville, Tennessee, consumes dozens of times more energy than the national average despite his costly green renovations, a new report shows. The average American home consumes less than 11,000-kilowatt hours per year, as opposed to Gore’s conspicuous 230,889-kilowatt hour consumption.
Gore recently released a new documentary called An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power, following up on his Academy Award-winning documentary, An Inconvenient Truth, which warned of the impending threat climate change poses to humanity. Despite this message, he seems to have no regard for his own consumption habits.
“It makes you wonder if he believes what he’s actually saying,” said Drew Johnson, the author of the report, who joined Tucker Carlson Tonight in explaining his findings. “Here’s a guy who’s basically exploited concerns about the environment to make $300 million dollars and win the Nobel Prize. It makes you wonder what his real agenda is.”
Portraying himself as almost a religious prophet for the environmentalist cause, Gore doesn’t seem to realize that he comes across as a hypocrite. Not only are environmental-proponents usually hypocritical in the advice they give out to others, their predictions are often wrong. Experts predicted that the Arctic Sea ice would be completely melted by 2016, when in fact sea ice increased by 31% in the past four years as reported by The Telegraph.
In truth, climate change activists capitalize on scaring average citizens into thinking bigger government, more taxes, and burdensome regulations are the answer to saving the planet – all while making for themselves a handsome living in the process. John Coleman, founder of The Weather Channel, published a 36-minute video discussing this topic where he went so far as to say it’s a complex “scam” and that “it became clear to me that politics had gotten in the way of the science.”
But besides making hundreds of millions of dollars for himself, Al Gore’s policies have cost Americans significantly at the pump. These environmentalist policies, when including the average cost of fuel, electricity, and food for the average American family of four, have increased expenses by $1,000 per year since implementing these policies, according to Coleman’s video.
There is a saying: “Be the change you want to see in the world.” It means that if you want to change something, you should lead by example and people will follow. Al Gore is doing nothing of the sort and, in the end, shows how little he genuinely believes in the cause he has been championing and from which he has been profiting.
