Former Vice President Al Gore used over 20 times more energy to power his home for a year than the average American, according to a report published on Wednesday.
The National Center for Public Policy Research reported that Gore's Nashville home used a total of 230,889 kilowatt hours of electricity from August 2016 to July 2017. The average U.S. residential utility customer used 10,812 kWh in 2015, according to the U.S. Energy Information Administration.
Gore's pool used, on average, more electricity in two months than the average American home in a year. It averaged 5,513 kWh per month, more than six times the average American's electrical consumption of 901 kWh per month on their entire home.
The report, released in the same week as the national debut of Gore's new environmental movie, called out Gore for being hypocritical due to his large electricity consumption. The report cites Gore's electricity bills from August 2016 through July 2017.
"No matter how the numbers are viewed, Al Gore uses vastly more electricity at his home than the average American — a particularly inconvenient truth given his hypocritical calls for all Americans to reduce their home energy use," the report states.
Gore also posseses at least two other homes in San Francisco and a farm house in Carthage, Tenn., the report noted.
The National Center for Public Policy Research is a conservative think tank that environmentalists have criticized for having financial ties to ExxonMobil over the years. The group released a report in 2014 which listed the "Top Ten Reasons Washington Should Not Impose New Global Warming Laws or Regulations."
"The world isn't warming. Scientists measuring surface temperatures and atmospheric temperatures using satellites — including scientists who believe in the global warming theory — say the Earth hasn't warmed since the Clinton Administration," the 2014 report listed.
On Friday, Gore's "An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power" is scheduled to be released across the U.S. The movie is a follow up to his 2006 film, "An Inconvenient Truth," and documents the former vice president as he travels the world discussing and advocating for policies to help fight climate change and prevent global warming.
