Just to add in my 2 cents without reading through the entire thread
PETA, the People for the Eating of Tasty Aminals, have just condemed Gore (yesterday I think) saying if he was really green and earth conscious he would give up eating meat and be vegan or some other flavor of vegetarian.
Additionally his mansion in TN used nore electricity in one month that the average american family uses in 1 year. But he now says he is going to switch to compact fluorscent lights.
This doesn't even take into consideration his other mansion in Verginia, which, being on the historic property list, he is banned by law from making any changes tomake it more "green friendly".
