Apparently not too concerned about expanding their carbon foot print, Al and Tipper Gore have just plunked down almost $9 million for their fourth luxury home, this one located in Montecito, CA.  From the L.A. Times:

Former Vice President Al Gore and his wife, Tipper, have added a Montecito-area property to their real estate holdings, reports the Montecito Journal.

The couple spent $8,875,000 on an ocean-view villa on 1.5 acres with a swimming pool, spa and fountains, a real estate source familiar with the deal confirms. The Italian-style house has six fireplaces, five bedrooms and nine bathrooms.

AGW  has been very, very good to Al, no?  The man who preaches lowering YOUR carbon footprint has the audacity to buy his FOURTH luxury home.  But don’t worry, I’m sure he’ll replace all those lightbulbs with CFLs.
