At the Academy Awards last Sunday, Algore's documentary An Inconvenient Truth got an Academy Award for best documentary. I bet nobody saw that coming!

Anyhow, the day after the surprise win, the watchdog group Tennessee Center for Policy Research found out that Algore's little mansion villa pays about $1200 a month in electricity. The AP says the Gore household used 191,000 kilowatt hours in 2006, where the average Nashville household uses 15,600 per year.

An Algore spokesperson said: "Sometimes when people don't like the message, in this case that global warming is real, it's convenient to attack the messenger."

You bet it's convenient to reveal an inconvenient truth about Algore and his environmental crusade. "Don't do what we do, do what we say" liberalism at its finest. As I stated before on my blog, in this age of mass, instant communications where anybody can telecomm around the world, Algore has decided to jet city to city, country to country to convince us to save the Earth by saving energy.

Of course, liberals like Algore and Hollywood have an easy out: they lead a "carbon-neutral lifestyle". They invest their money in alternative and conservation energy projects and research.

How? At those same Academy Awards in replacement of goody-bags, guests were given a certificate for Terrapass. Terrapass is a "leading retailer of carbon offsets" that funds "clean energy projects". If you're a liberal, you can rent your electric car for one day and get a Terrapass, and think you're helping Mother Earth.

What they fail to see is that they are contradicting their own mantra. Liberals tell us to save energy and conserve but they won't - and find an easy, news media ready excuse to recluse themselves from the harsh policies they want to impose on us. They can drive their SUVs. They are better than us because they have "carbon offsets".

If want to give to Terrapass.com, fine. I think the project is a great idea, but don't make it replace the responsibility for the environment that you are trying to force on everybody else. If you want to save the environment then do it, then make it immediate like you say it should, and don't make excuses. This two-faced policy does make environmentalists look like hypocrites.
