AL GORE: Still guzzling energy in Nashville. "Despite adding solar panels, installing a geothermal system, replacing existing light bulbs with more efficient models, and overhauling the home’s windows and ductwork, Gore now consumes more electricity than before the 'green' overhaul."
It's almost like a metaphor.
Look at it this way, if Al hadn't made his mansion greener, just imagine how much more power his house would use. He's still saving.
Of course one might ask him to use a bit... less.
