And what a hoot! Al Gore was the one who pushed these "water saving" toilets upon us. I remember during the election campaign of 2000, Gore was doing a photo op in New England where he was going to canoe down the Merrimack River. Water was low that year so they planned a large release of water from a dam to avoid any chance of a photo showing Gore running aground on a rock or sand bar.
So he probably just wasted more water than all his toilets save in a year. Unbelievable.
