More Politician Hypocrisy

Update: Al Gore Responds
Update 2: Money quote from Cato-at-Liberty post: "Gore has a huge mansion to power, but he also consumes four times more electricity per square foot than my family. Is the inventor of the Internet running a computer server farm out of his home?"

This time, from Al Gore and regarding global warming. Apparently he is in the habit of using in one month twice the amount of energy that the average American household uses in a year, according to this article from the Tennessee Center for Policy Research. An inconvenient truth, indeed.

I don't know where these additional figures come from since they're not in the original article, but they were presented in the Drudge Report Flash that alerted me to this story:
