    *yawn*

    What if he uses his home as an office and to entertain influencial people? Maybe the use is justified, but we'll not hear that from partisan sources.

    Well, at least he didn't lead us into a war based on a lie based on an agenda of apocalypse.

    I believe that Gore buys CO2 credits to offset his usage. We can debate whether that is effective or not, but I thought I would mention it, for full disclosure and all.

    "They" don't care about disclosure. Also, most of "them" don't even know what a CO2 credit is.

    When my new bro-in-law's sister got married in South America a few months back, her and the groom requested people buy CO2 credits instead of wedding gifts.

    Yeah - the coldest month this winter resulted in a gas bill of $200. But I live in a mini-mansion. :D

    Oh FFS, he's a multimillionaire. Who cares what his electricity bill is? Isn't it more important he's trying to educate people about this in the first place?

    By the way, I buy my power from Meridian Energy who only generate power from renewable sources AND who operate their business carbon neutrally. :smug:

    Double check that. A good portion of the country DOES indeed have a choice, but it's not promoted or advertised.

    yeah, i thought that was the whole idea behind deregulation, but i've never experienced the fruits of that labor.

    to top that, csu (colorado springs utilities) is a non-profit, but keeps jacking up their rates & continues to advertise on t.v.

    very strange.

    I wanted to use bad grammar cause its funny.

    Or that leading by example should be important.

    Or that the release increased the actual electricity usage by a factor of 10.

    Or how quickly folks will dismiss things about folks with whom they agree.

    But mostly the bad grammar thing.

    gore is an excellent lead-by-example type, as long as you mean "how can you be a good catholic & throw money to compensate your guilt"

    don't tell this to anyone at his baptist church; it would be "inconvenient"

    you mean the part where dude says the TCPR's claim to being non-partisan is laughable, but is too busy laughing to back it up?

    yeah, i read that & more. really, what's the point? it's herr olbermensche
