UpDate - Gore's Purchase of Indulgences

"Gore spokesperson Kalee Kreider said he buys enough "green power" – renewable energy sources such as solar, wind and methane gas – to balance 100 per cent of electricity costs."
Gore participates in a utility program that sells blocks of "green power" for an extra $4 a month. He buys 108 such blocks every month, covering 16,200 kilowatt-hours and helping subsidize renewable energy sources.
"Sometimes when people don't like the message, in this case that global warming is real, it's convenient to attack the messenger," she said. "
Gore has been buying the "green power" for $432 a month since November, and his home is also under renovation to add solar panels, Kreider said. (Ed. what about before Nov? obviously he and his followers are not stupid hypocrites))
"It is however, okay for people who fight against the global corporate over consumption to attack those who disagree", she added.
