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?
And it sails on the ocean, and it’s beautiful:
