Ok more humor than anything else not a Fan of Bush vs. Gore but this is funny.

This is funny and verified on snopes. It's funny, that's it, have a laugh or don't read it or what ever. I am not saying Bush is Greener than Gore.

I do think Gore has the same kind of ulterior motives that Bush does in quite a few ways.

I received this in an email from a Family member.

A Tale of Two Houses. Very interesting tidbit.The end may surprise you!

House #1 A 20 room mansion ( not including 8 bathrooms ) heated by natural gas. Add on a pool (
and a pool house) and a separate guest house, all heated by gas. In one month this residence
consumes more energy than the average American household does in a year. The average bill for
electricity and natural gas runs over $2400. per month. In natural gas alone, this property consumes
more than 20 times the national average for an American home. This house is not situated in a
Northern or Midwestern "snow belt" area. It's in the South.

==================================================

House #2
Designed by an architecture professor at a leading national university. This house
incorporates every "green" feature current home construction can provide. The house is 4,000 square
feet ( 4 bedrooms ) and is nestled on a high prairie in the American southwest. A central closet
in the house holds geothermal heat-pumps drawing ground water through pipes sunk 300 feet into the
ground. The water (usually 67 degrees F.) heats the house in the winter and cools it in the summer. The
system uses no fossil fuels such as oil or natural gas and it consumes one-quarter electricity required
for a conventional heating/cooling system. Rainwater from the roof is collected and funneled into a 25,000 gallon underground cistern. Wastewater
from showers, sinks and toilets goes into underground purifying tanks and then into the cistern. The collected water then irrigates the land
surrounding the house. Surrounding flowers and shrubs native to the area enable the property to blend into the surrounding rural landscape.
~~~~~
HOUSE #1 is outside of Nashville, Tennessee; it is the abode of the "environmentalist " Al Gore.
HOUSE #2 is on a ranch near Crawford, Texas; it is the residence the of the President of the United
States, George W. Bush.

An "inconvenient truth."

  1. I guess it is worth pointing out that Al Gore offsets his carbon footprint.

    And that since W has lived in public housing since 1994, you are comparing Gore's principal residence with W's vacation home. I'll take a leader with a big house who makes an attempt to offset his carbon footprint and will sign the Kyoto Protocol over someone who withdrew US support of the Kyoto Protocol and lives in a publicly financed mansion and also happens to have an eco-friendly vacation home in Texas (not too mention access to some fancy digs in Kennebunkport).
