Al Gore not Green?

Posted by Web Staff - email | Facebook | Twitter

(WOIO) - Former Vice President Al Gore is under criticism for his new 8-million dollar mansion.

It's hardly "green".

Gore won a Nobel Peace Prize in 2007 for his work on global warming but his new 65-hundred square foot home in Montecito, CA doesn't have any solar panels or wind turbines.

Instead, a giant swimming pool and several decorative fountains.

Gore has been criticized in the past for not applying the principles he preaches to his personal life.
