Al Gore, the Puritan global warming hysteric, insists that we all reduce our living standards and dismantle prosperity in order to SAVE THE PLANET!!! But he never practices what he preaches. He flies on private jets, once took rapid transit into a city but had his luggage brought in by limo, and most egregiously, has multiple huge homes, his primary residence being a massive energy hog. And now he has purchased another mansion in the very tony Montecito, near Santa Barbara. From the story:
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.
I am sure Gore will pay his own company to plant a few trees as an indulgence and call it even.
Gore has made more than $100 million pitching climate panic. But he acts in his personal life as if it is all a scam. Do as I say, not as I do: That’s Elmer Gantry, er Al–the debate is over, but I won’t answer tough questions–Gore.
