“A 25,000-gallon underground cistern collects rainwater gathered from roof runs; wastewater from sinks, toilets and showers goes into underground purifying tanks and is also funneled into the cistern. The water from the cistern is used to irrigate the landscaping surrounding the four-bedroom home. Plants and flowers native to the high prairie area blend the structure into the surrounding ecosystem.”
Gore talks the talk, the president walks the walk.
Gore and his leftist buddies pat themselves on the back and tell us what they think we ought to be doing, but they are not going to follow the rules they lay down for us.
Al Gore excuses his own excesses by saying he is buying "carbon credits," to offset his massive use of electric power and jet planes.
Buying "carbon credits" allows him to pollute to his heart’s content, because he’s adopted a "carbon neutral" life whereby any emissions for which he is personally responsible are allegedly offset by buying “green credits” such as parcels of forests that eat up CO2.
He doesn’t do solar, he doesn’t use wind power, he doesn’t change his lifestyle or go bio-diesel, he doesn’t do any of the things he insists the rest of us must do to save the planet from being barbecued -- he just buys carbon credits and goes on his merry way spewing pollution in all directions.
This is so outrageously asinine on its face; it alone should awaken the American people to the fact that they are being had by Mr. Gore and his fellow global warming fanatics. Instead of getting an Oscar Sunday night, he should have been laughed off the stage.
