I think you guys are grasping at straws. Gore's enterprise has grown, apparently much to your collective chagrin, and I think you might find his energy usage growing in consort with his enterprise's growth. I think rather than bitching about Gore being stupid, something there is no evidence to support, or about being a hypocrite concerning his household energy consumption, a better tactic might be for the author to request an interview with several other news organizations to offer an explanation of this "discovery." If it turns out Gore is truly being wasteful, well, then he is a hypocrite. Until then, I think this is a red herring, more dirty fuel for the fire that generates unneeded and detrimental, emotional responses to the entire issue of climate change. Which is, of course, what the author and those repeating the story, desired.
I would find the article much more useful if it had an accounting of what the energy is used for and how Gore accounts for it on his taxes. Jim
