Global warming profiteer Al Gore’s An Convenient Sequel is currently showing in theaters, making this an opportune time to examine the lifestyle of the self-righteous crusader who demands that we dramatically lower our standard of living so as not to offend the planet with harmless carbon emissions:

In just this past year, Gore burned through enough energy to power the typical American household for more than 21 years, according to a new report by the National Center for Public Policy Research. The former vice president consumed 230,889 kilowatt hours (kWh) at his Nashville residence, which includes his home, pool and driveway entry gate electricity meters.
