Al Gore’s Home Improvements

Al Gore supposedly made some improvements to his mansion to make it more energy-efficient. Efficiency is fine, but this doesn’t let Al off the hook. The question we should be asking is, why does Al live in a mansion in the first place? An energy-efficient mansion is still an energy hog by virtue of its very size. What’s more, Al’s pad has a heated swimming pool.

With millions of people around the world living in filthy shanties, you’d think a man who has pretensions to being one of the world’s biggest environmental campaigners would set a better example by living in a modest home.

According to the article, the Gores paid $2.3 million for their home. I can’t even imagine what $2.3 million looks like. I guess people with gobs of money think differently.
