Global warming skeptics back at Al’s door

Al Gore’s house takes another beating in a new campaign from the Competitive Enterprise Institute, which argues that energy-conservation policies will hurt developing nations. Gore took heat a few years ago for using 20 times as much energy in his Nashville-area home as the average resident, though the house has since been renovated and is no longer an energy guzzler. “I think they’ve lost the debate on the science and the policy and now all they are left with is to just attack the messenger,” says a Gore rep.
