    Every light in the house will be on. All outdoor lights will be on. I may light a fire to celebrate and put something in the air. I may even turn on my car headlights. Light a few candles.

    Fox News reported Gore's spot lights that illuminated his trees. From the Nashville Post below:

    I pulled up to Al’s house, located in the posh Belle Meade section of Nashville, at 8:48pm – right in the middle of Earth Hour. I found that the main spotlights that usually illuminate his 9,000 square foot mansion were dark, but several of the lights inside the house were on.

    In fact, most of the windows were lit by the familiar blue-ish hue indicating that floor lamps and ceiling fixtures were off, but TV screens and computer monitors were hard at work. (In other words, his house looked the way most houses look about 1:45am when their inhabitants are distractedly watching “Cheaters” or “Chelsea Lately” reruns.)

    The kicker, though, were the dozen or so floodlights grandly highlighting several trees and illuminating the driveway entrance of Gore’s mansion.

    I [kid] you not, my friends, the savior of the environment couldn’t be bothered to turn off the gaudy lights that show off
