A story bout 2 houses....verified as true...

Well Sir...my good buddy "fish" frum down Kentucky way sent me this interestin tidbit of information...and because there is so much possible bullshit floatin around the internet these days, I "Snoped" this article and it was verified as TRUE....

House #1

A 20 room mansion (not including 8 bathrooms) heated by natural gas.
Add on a pool (and a pool house) and a separate guest house, all heated by gas.

In one month this residence consumes more energy than the average American household does in a year. The average bill for electricity and natural gas runs over $2400/mo. in natural gas alone, this property consumes more than 20 times the national average for an American home. This house is not situated in a Northern or Midwestern "snow belt" area. It's in the South.

House #2

Designed by an architecture professor at a leading national university. This house incorporates every "green" feature current home construction can provide. The house is 4,000 square feet (4 bedrooms) and is nestled on a high prairie in the American southwest. A central closet in the house holds geothermal heat-pumps drawing ground water through pipes sunk 300 feet into the ground. The water (usually 67 degrees F.) heats the house in the winter and cools it in the summer.

The system uses no fossil fuels such as oil or natural gas and it consumes one-quarter electricity required for a conventional heating/cooling system. Rainwater from the roof is collected and funneled into a 25,000 gallon underground cistern.
Wastewater from showers, sinks and toilets goes into underground purifying tanks and then into the cistern. The collected water then irrigates the land surrounding the house. Surrounding flowers and shrubs native to the area enable the property to blend into the surrounding rural landscape.

HOUSE #1 is outside of Nashville, Tennessee; it is the abode of the
"environmentalist" Al Gore.

HOUSE #2 is on a ranch near Crawford, Texas; it is the residence
of the President of the United States, George W. Bush.

The fact of the matter is simply this.... Al Gore ain't walkin his talk.....

...its also my understandin that anuther inconvenient truth regardin "Mr. Environmentalist" himself...Al Gore...is that he owns stock in a company that sells "Carbon Footprint Off-Sets" which regular folks like you and I can buy into to "cancel" our "Carbon Footprint" on this planet...

Now...in all fairness...I can't seem to verify or not that report...but if so...it would appear that Mr. Gore is padding his retirement....

What do y'all think????
