Way back in 2007, the world was taken by storm by the greatest piece propaganda in the modern era.
The media and Hollywood put their entire weight behind the film, making it out to be the defining issue of our time.
Al Gore’s An Inconvenient Truth spelled out all sorts of apocalyptic predictions and promises, preaching that soon the world would be covered in water unless we “go green” amd hand over more control to our governments.
The movie won an Academy Award for Best Documentary but in the years since, none of the fear-mongering predictions came true, and much of the “science” in the film has been discredited.
Global warming became a huge issue because even though many leftists claim to be “green” and tell us to limit our environmental footprints, hardly any are walking the walk.
Especially the godfather of this cult, Al Gore. He’s made tens of millions off his climate alarmism but despite his supposed love for the environment, his lifestyle sure does a lot to damage it.
As reported at the Daily Caller, on Friday, we’ll once again be subjected to the lies and deceit that make up the foundation of the global warming cult, as Gore releases the sequel to his discredited 2007 film.
You’d think that Gore would be living a green lifestyle since becoming a leader in the cult, but you’d be wrong to think that. As usual with the Left, it’s do as I say, not as I do.
In just this past year, Gore burned through enough energy to power the typical American household for more than 21 years, according to a new report by the National Center for Public Policy Research.
The former vice president consumed 230,889 kilowatt hours (kWh) at his Nashville residence, which includes his home, pool and driveway entry gate electricity meters.
A typical family uses an average of 10,812 kWh of electricity per year, according to the U.S. Energy Information Administration.
But that’s just the tip of the unmelted iceberg.
Last September alone, Gore devoured 30,993 kWh of electricity. That’s enough to power 34 average American homes for a month. Over the last 12 months, Gore used more electricity just heating his outdoor swimming pool than six typical homes use in a year.
Then there’s his extensive use of private jets, which is exactly the opposite of the “ride-sharing” idea that’s so popular amongst the greens.

Each month, Gore pays about $1,800 for his total energy bill, which is as much as many American’s mortgages. But that’s okay because thanks to his climate activism, he’s worth an estimated $300 million.
Fear-mongering about issues you know nothing about sure seems lucrative these days, doesn’t it?
Al Gore being a massive hypocrite is nothing new. Most of the celebrity green worshippers are, as are most liberal Americans that make such a big deal about global warming.
It’s not actually about making sacrifices to save the planet, but talking about making those sacrifices, because signaling one’s moral superiority is the high they’re really after.
When it comes down to it, using a tote at the grocery store is about all the agency a leftist has to save the planet.
