Are the rumors true that Al Gore - being the leading expert on global warming - uses more electricity than the average citizen of the United States?

Al Gore uses electricity produced from renewable sources. If electricity is produced from renewable sources, then this has practically no carbon footprint and is sustainable.

Al Gore is not the "leading expert" on Global Warming! He is ONE OF the leading activist proponents for the control of Global Warming.

Yes, he does use more energy than the average citizen. But so do almost 50% of all Americans.

There are also several important points to note:

  • he buys his energy through the local Green Power Switch Program. This is electricity generated from wind, solar and methane gas, renewable energy sources.
  • he has installed solar panels on his roof.
  • he has installed a rainwater collection system
  • he has installed a geo-thermal heating system
  • all his lights have been replaced with low-energy bulbs
  • The US Green Building Council has given his house its second-highest rating.
  • the house is also his place of business, so it will use more energy than a domestic home.
  • the climate and the size of the house make his energy use much the same as other homes in that area of Tennessee.

Why are catchers batting in the AL now?

Catchers have always batted in the AL. If you mean, "Why are catchers batting so well now?" (catchers are traditionally not good hitters): Nowadays, it seems that offense is much more important than defense. Forty years ago, you could have a good career as a catcher or secondbasement if you were great defensively but only hid .240 or so. Now, everyone's looking for offense, so people like Mike Piazza, who doesn't throw out a lot of runners but hits very well, can succeed as a catcher. If you meant to ask, "Why are pitchers batting in the AL now?": Well, there hasn't always been a DH - it started in 1972. But, the rule with interleague play and the playoffs is that you use the home team's rules. So, if an AL team plays in an NL stadium, they can't use a DH, and the pitcher has to bat. Also, in an AL stadium, if the DH goes out into the field, the pitcher must bat from now on (for instance, if the DH moves to first to replace the first baseman, the pitcher must now bat in the first baseman's spot.)

Did Al Gore really say he invented the internet?

He didn't use the word invented, but On 9 March 1999, during an interview with Wolf Blitzer of CNN, Gore was asked what were the differences between himself from his opponent in the race for the nomination for President in 2000. His answer was, in part, "During my service in the United States Congress, I took the initiative in creating the Internet."

In 1988 Al Gore sponsored the National High Performance Computer Act which created a national computing plan and began connecting other Universities and Libraries to the existing ARPANET network.

Then, Al Gore began to craft the High Performance Computing and Communication Act of 1991 (commonly referred to as "The Gore Bill") after hearing the 1988 report toward a National Research Network submitted to Congress by a group chaired by UCLA professor of computer science, Leonard Kleinrock, one of the central creators of the ARPANET (the ARPANET, first deployed by Kleinrock and others in 1969, is the predecessor of the Internet). The bill was passed on December 9, 1991 and led to the National Information Infrastructure (NII) which Gore referred to as the "information superhighway."

While it might have sounded like he was taking sole credit for the internet, he was indicating that he supported economic conditions in the US that would allow such new developments as the internet to take place in American society. He was, indeed, awarded a lifetime achievement award for contributions to the Internet in 2005.

Yes. Former Vice President Al Gore is a public supporter of same-sex marriage.
