seems Al Gore, global warming nut that he is, manages to burn through an enormous amount of power in his 10,000 sqft house. i might note that "company spokeswoman Laurie Parker said the utility never got a request from the policy center and never gave it any information." so it's possible the whole story is a facist republican attempt to bring down a modern american hero. or not. they claim to balance their carbon emissions by investing in green stuff. but how does investing actually make up for emissions?
