Glass Houses

Here's a verification of an email that has been circulating through cyberspace for a while now. It seems that Al Gore's residence is much less eco-friendly than President Bush's Crawford ranch house.

According to the Associated Press, the Gore's 10,000 square foot Belle Meade residence consumes electricity at a rate of about 12 times the average for a typical house in Nashville (191,000 kwh versus 15,600 kwh). While there are mitigating factors (further discussed in our article about the Gore household's energy use), this is still a surprising number, given that the residence is approximately four times the size of the average new American home.
How's that for an inconvenient truth...
