FOI delivers: Al Gore's energy bill

Is nothing sacred?

As detailed in this blog, the Tennessee Centre for Policy Research obtained, under Freedom of Information, details of Al Gore's energy bills for his home near Nashville. It turns out that the Gore household consumed electricity last year equivalent to 20 times the national average.

The fine print is that it all came from an energy provider that uses solar, wind power, and methane, and Gore has adopted a "carbon neutral" life.

But the story's doing the rounds under the inevitable heading - an inconvenient truth.
