Gore’s home consumes 20x the energy of the average American family

I’ll let the article speak for itself on this one. But I want to add one thing. When confronted with this information, here is what a Gore spokesman said:
Scoffed a former Gore adviser in response: "I think what you're seeing here is the last gasp of the global warming skeptics. They've completely lost the debate on the issue so now they're just attacking their most effective opponent."

Now, this person didn’t dispute the facts that were presented. He just took issue with those who mentioned these facts because it looks like an attack – a criticism – of Gore. They have no response, no defense, except for ‘shame on you for calling him a hypocrite with facts that support your claim’. This is how Liberals think and act. If it’s viewed as an attack then your gripe is somehow illegitimate. Personally, I think Gore must answer the questions these facts bring up, namely: Why is it OK for him to be an energy glutton but not for us “little people” who aren’t as important?
