Algore buys ocean-front mansion

Algore doesn't seem much worried about his carbon footprint - everybody knows about his 20-room, energy-devouring mansion in Tennessee. But it doesn't seem Algore is much worried about rising sea levels he's been predicting for years, either. Otherwise he wouldn't buy a $9Million mansion on the coast of California.

    Los Angeles 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.
