The one thing I find interesting that nobody is brought up yet is that there is no comparison to energy usage of any other homes in the area that are generally that size. We all agree that a mansion that size will use more energy than your typical 1400 square foot home, but there is no information as to how much energy a home that size requires. We look at those numbers and think they are insane, but maybe they are lower than the average mansion. None of us have been inside his home, we don't know what kind of light bulbs he has. The media is so quick to find something wrong in order to stir the pot, they often don't present both sides of the situation. Yes, Gore is publicly promoting the documentary, and maybe is using more energy than he should, we don't know. But should he have waited to put this research out until his home was 100% green so there wouldn't be this kind of media backlash, or is it more important that the information got out to the masses as he is still working on doing what he can?
