Al Gore Claims He Lives a Carbon-Free Lifestyle

Utility bills and his use of private jets have proved otherwise in the past.

Former vice president, failed presidential candidate, and environmental activist Al Gore claimed on CNN on Sunday that he lives a “carbon-free lifestyle.”

Asked to respond to President Trump’s election-year criticism of Al Gore for using private jets, Gore denied the claim to Jake Tapper.

“Well, I don’t have a private jet,” Gore said. “What the carbon emissions come from, my trips on Southwest Airlines are offset.”

“I live a carbon-free lifestyle to the maximum extent possible,” Gore claimed.

While Gore’s claim that he does not own a private jet may be technically true, the fact remains that Gore used a private company jet to promote his climate change film, “An Inconvenient Truth,” in the 2000s.

Moreover, according to Tapper’s own reporting from 2007, Gore racked up a $30,000 utility bill in 2006.
