Al Gore: Your new neighbor

Despite his environmental hysteria, Al Gore long has had one of the biggest “carbon footprints” of any mammal on the planet. A “carbon footprint” is how much carbon your existence spews into the environment.

Gore already owned a massive, 20-room, eight-bedroom mansion. Bloomberg Business Week reported: “In 2006, Gore devoured nearly 221,000 kWh—more than 20 times the national average.”

Now, Gore just bought another massive mansion, this time in Montecito, with a great view of the Pacific Ocean:

Former Vice President Al Gore and his wife, Tipper, have added a Montecito-area property to their real estate holdings, reports the Montecito Journal.

The couple spent $8,875,000 on an ocean-view villa on 1.5 acres with a swimming pool, spa and fountains, a real estate source familiar with the deal confirms. The Italian-style house has six fireplaces, five bedrooms and nine bathrooms.

What a massive hypocrite. He lectures the rest of us on “An Inconvenient Truth,” his save-the-earth blather, but lives like a Rockefeller on steroids.

Where does Al get his moolah? He inherited a lot of it. But, according to the Daily Telegraph, he’s on track to become “the world’s first carbon billionaire”:

Last year Mr Gore’s venture capital firm loaned a small California firm $75m to develop energy-saving technology.

The company, Silver Spring Networks, produces hardware and software to make the electricity grid more efficient.

So, he gets massively wealthy on the government-perpetrated fraud of “global warming,” and lives in massive mansions, while you live in a hovel in a slum.

Update: An alert reader (see below) led me to make two changes:

First, I fixed the link referring to Gore’s new mansion; making it the article today I read, instead of another one.

Second, I corrected the definition of “carbon footprint.”

    Actually, a ‘carbon footprint’ refers to the amount of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases that one’s lifestyle causes to be emitted.

    Also, is this news? The first article you link to (in three separate places) is three years old, while the other is 6 months old.

    D. Parry: Thank you for the corrections, which I have made. I mis-linked today’s reference of the mansion to something in the past. That’s been fixed, as well as the definition of “carbon footprint.”
