Climate change alarmist Al Gore has another documentary he wants America to go see in theaters.

This week, the sequel to “An Inconvenient Truth,” called “An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power” arrives in movie theaters.

Gore has been repping the movie nonstop, hoping for another multi-million dollar payday. "An Inconvenient Truth” made $50 million at the box office and netted Gore a Nobel Peace Prize. Since losing the 2000 election, Gore has made climate change the center of his political portfolio, and business has been good.

Al Gore’s net worth has swelled to $200 million off of profits he has earned from his climate change rhetoric, including a hefty speakers fee, large global events, celebrity cruises and book and movie deals.

However, based on new research by the National Center for Public Policy Research, a conservative think tank, Gore will need to save all that money just to pay the electrical bills for his Nashville mansion. Gore owns three homes, but his main residence is a 20-room gated mansion in one of the richest neighborhoods in the country.

According to National Center for Public Policy Research:

Al Gore resides in a 10,070-square-foot Colonial-style home in the posh Belle Meade section of Nashville, the eighth-wealthiest neighborhood in America according to the U.S. Census Bureau.

The home, which was built in 1915, contains 20 rooms — including five bedrooms, eight full bathrooms and two half-baths. Gore purchased the property, including the home and the surrounding 2.09 acre lot, in 2002 for $2.3 million.

In 2010, Gore announced that he and wife Tipper were divorcing after 40 years of marriage. According to media speculation, Tipper likely lives in the $8.9 million California home the couple purchased weeks before the separation. The Gores have four grown children who no longer live at home. That leaves the former vice president as presumably the only occupant of the home, making his energy consumption even more staggering.

Gore also owns at least two other homes, a pied-à-terre in San Francisco's St. Regis Residence Club and a farm house in Carthage, Tennessee.

The center received some shocking results after petitioning for Gore's home electricity usage from the local utility company. Among them:

• The past year, Gore's home energy use averaged 19,241 kilowatt-hours (kWh) every month, compared to the U.S. household average of 901 kWh per month.

• Gore guzzles more electricity in one year than the average American family uses in 21 years.

• In September of 2016, Gore's home consumed 30,993 kWh in just one month — as much energy as a typical American family burns in 34 months.

• From August 2016 through July 2017, Gore spent almost $22,000 on electricity bills.

• Gore paid an estimated $60,000 to install 33 solar panels. Those solar panels produce an average of 1,092 kWh per month, only 5.7 percent of Gore's typical monthly energy consumption.

• During the past 12 months, Gore devoured 66,159 kWh of electricity just heating his pool. That is enough energy to power six average U.S. households for a year.

According to government energy studies, the average American household uses 10,812 kilowatt-hours a year. Some basic math shows that Gore's annual pool heating bill is nearly seven times the annual electricity used by an entire American household.

Worse yet, Gore lives by himself.

Talk about an inconvenient truth.
