As you can read from Hot Air and PJM, having made millions from the world’s most successful slideshow and his financial ties to global warming, Al’s bought himself a custom-made 100-foot houseboat, which he appropriately named, “Bio-Solar 1”. Yes. BS 1.
And the BS is gynormous.
Surely, Al would be using a 100-footer to cruise the seas?
Nope. To circle around a lake.
Center Hill Lake, Tenn., to be specific.
That’s Al’s idea of reducing the carbon footprint.
Steve Gill has the biofueled details on the BS1: Gore Hits the Waves with a Massive New Houseboat:
the engines are bio-diesel fueled and Gore can expect to use about two gallons an hour to cruise Center Hill Lake.
The marina where the BS is docked doesn’t sell biodiesel.
The solar panels have not yet been installed but are expected to arrive from Reno, Nevada “any day” and will be in working order “soon,” says Austin.
Until that day, the boat’s plugged to the regular outlet.
“This boat is going to be the Toyota Prius of the houseboat business,”
Custom-made yatch = $500,000 to $1,000,000. Toyota Prius = $21,500 to $23,770. Not quite “the Toyota Prius” ballpark.
I wonder if Al’s ready to give up the private jet. Or is that BS2?
Al Gore really is a piece of work. Irish Spy has the image of ecosaintlyhood.
No Pasaran has the video.
Tim Blair points us to a vessel that needs to biofuels.
And it sails on the ocean, and it’s beautiful:

LOL at BS 1. Could it be any more fitting?
Al Gore is a long time authority on BS.
After all, he was good enough for the Clintons…
he is such a hypocrite. bs is the perfect name for his boat.
Pat Patterson says
So far everyone is concentrating on the obvious but there are another couple of points to be made. For one, the main one, a lot of petroleum based products went into making the hull and cabin of the boat as polyester resin to bond with whatever type of woven material is used to make the shape. And that none of those materials are bio-degradable. Neither the hull or cabin or the batteries needed to store the electricity created by the solar panels.
GM Roper says
B.S. 1…. can’t believe that someone with Gore’s supposed (note, the word supposed is operative here) couldn’t see what Bio-Solar would be initialized as. ROTFLMZBO

Well, we have a Pius X High School in Los Angeles that the administration claimed they never thought that the kids would brag about Pius X and not Pius the 10th.
