living as he says man. This houseboat is said to produce up to 50% less emissions than a regular houseboat. Kudos good sir!

The only thing any better for the environment may be... oh I dunno... no houseboat! But then again, what do I know?

Sack

p.s. I guess he's really getting rich off of all of this. Limos, houseboats, etc. As a republican, I must say he's growing on me /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/smile.gif

My houseboat has zero emissions! In fact, it's still sitting in a dealership somewhere waiting for some other sucker to pay for it!

Classic definition of a boat...a hole in the water where you pour in money.

I'm in the same boat as you steve (ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha) so to speak. Wow I crack myself up.

Mine produces 100% less emissions than a regular houseboat. Or would it technically be an infinite amount in this case? Either way, we're living the green dream my friend. But we won't brag about our lack of houseboat. We're just doing our part.

Actually it doesn't do any on those things right now. He say it will use bio-diesel and it will have solar panels and it will use two gallons an hour( I'd like to see that one on a 100 foot boat). I'd like to see how he is going to run it on bio-diesel when they don't sell it at any of the marinas in the area.

Right now it is just a straight diesel plugged into two 220 volt shore power lines and if that thing gets two gallons a mile I would be surprised, much less two gallons an hour. That's OK though, he paid for it with his carbon credit money. /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/laugh.gif

Just refer back to Gayle's post in which she stated zero remorse for her abusive ways to the earth. Her response was that she did not care how harmful she has been in the past, she has enough money to buy something a little cleaner if it becomes popular (I mean if she thinks that will look responsible to rest of the big boat owners with whom she rubs shoulders). This is certainly a paraphrase but I got it from a poor person after they read her elitist post.

People like Gore and Gayle don't care about the earth and whether or not it is heating or cooling. All they care about is looking good in front of others.

my favorite is the hybrid people that feel the need to remind you several times about how they own a hybrid, and what a good and caring person they are for it. If they really did it for altruistic reasons, why such a need to make sure we all know you did it?

Economic Consequences
Overweight and obesity and their associated health problems have a significant economic impact on the U.S. health care system (USDHHS, 2001). Medical costs associated with overweight and obesity may involve direct and indirect costs (Wolf and Colditz, 1998; Wolf, 1998). Direct medical costs may include preventive, diagnostic, and treatment services related to obesity. Indirect costs relate to morbidity and mortality costs. Morbidity costs are defined as the value of income lost from decreased productivity, restricted activity, absenteeism, and bed days. Mortality costs are the value of future income lost by premature death.


National Estimated Cost of Obesity
According to a study of national costs attributed to both overweight (BMI 25–29.9) and obesity (BMI greater than 30), medical expenses accounted for 9.1 percent of total U.S. medical expenditures in 1998 and may have reached as high as $78.5 billion ($92.6 billion in 2002 dollars) (Finkelstein, Fiebelkorn, and Wang, 2003). Approximately half of these costs were paid by Medicaid and Medicare. The primary data sets used to develop the spending estimates for this study included the 1998 Medical Expenditure Panel Survey (MEPS) and the 1996 and 1997 National Health Interview Surveys (NHIS). The data also included information about each person’s health insurance status and sociodemographic characteristics.

Table 1, Aggregate Medical Spending, in Billions of Dollars, Attributable to Overweight and Obesity, by Insurance Status and Data Source, 1996–1998

Insurance Category
Overweight and Obesity Obesity
MEPS (1998) NHA (1998) MEPS (1998) NHA (1998)
Out-of-pocket $7.1 $12.8 $3.8 $6.9
Private $19.8 $28.1 $9.5 $16.1
Medicaid $3.7 $14.1 $2.7 $10.7
Medicare $20.9 $23.5 $10.8 $13.8
Total $51.5 $78.5 $26.8 $47.5

Note: Calculations based on data from the 1998 Medical Expenditure Panel Survey merged with the 1996 and 1997 National Health Interview Surveys, and health care expenditures data from National Health Accounts (NHA). MEPS estimates do not include spending for institutionalized populations, including nursing home residents.
Source: Finkelstein, Fiebelkorn, and Wang, 2003

As shown in Table 1, in 1998 aggregate adult medical expenditures attributable to overweight and obesity is estimated to be $51.5 billion using MEPS data and $78.5 billion using 1998 National Health Accounts (NHA) data. For obesity alone, the estimated costs are $26.8 billion and $47.5 billion, respectively. The inclusion of nursing home expenditures in the NHA estimates causes most of the difference between the MEPS and NHA results.


State-Level Estimated Costs of Obesity
A more recent study focused on state-level estimates of total, Medicare and Medicaid obesity attributable medical expenditures (Finkelstein, Fiebelkorn, and Wang, 2004). Researchers used the 1998 MEPS linked to the 1996 and 1997 NHIS, and three years of data (1998–2000) from the Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System (BRFSS) to predict annual state-level estimates of medical expenditures attributable to obesity (BMI greater than 30).

State-level estimates range from $87 million (Wyoming) to $7.7 billion (California). Obesity-attributable Medicare estimates range from $15 million (Wyoming) to $1.7 billion (California), and obesity-attributable Medicaid expenditures range from $23 million (Wyoming) to $3.5 billion (New York). The state differences in obesity-attributable expenditures are partly driven by the differences in the size of each state’s population.

These state-level estimates can assist state policy makers to determine how best to allocate public health resources and provide information concerning the economic impact of obesity in a state. However, these estimates should not be used to make comparisons across states, or between payers within states. In addition, these state-estimated data are limited to direct medical costs, as defined above, and not indirect costs (example: absenteeism and decreased productivity) attributed to obesity.

Table 2 shows the estimated percentage of total, Medicare, and Medicaid adult medical expenses that are attributable to obesity.

Gayle woman have a greater sense of BS when they see it. I know you would not look into Putin's heart and be fooled by a KGB leader. His actions speak louder than his heart.

Invade Iran and see the mess you will have gotten us into. They talk about Obama's inexperience in foreign affars. After 8 years in office GWB is still a baby. ####

Dick, can you believe... not only a post about a houseboat using fuel...( most people don't cruise very far in a houseboat),pretty obvious they know zilch about houseboats... and then they try to tie Gayle in with Gore just because she owns a boat.
And the punch line to this idiotic tale....Wally has no problem with driving an SUV....

Because I don't buy into the man-made global warming hysteria.

I'll drive whatever I can afford and it's really none of your business. And it's none of my business how much fuel Gayle burns up in her boat. I was just pointing out the fact that she calls for conservation and alternative fuels while behaving in a manner that would belie her supposed beliefs.

The point of thread was the hypocrisy of Gore telling people they should quit burning so much carbon and he not only lives in a house that uses 10 times the average household, but he adds insult to injury by purchasing a huge boat.

Hope this helps.

And he still can't speak worth a damn. He's gotta be the dumbest crook to ever sleep in the WH!

All this Republican BS about celebrity. What they hell did they think Reagan was? All that BS about the liberals, and Hollywood, and they're the party that put an actor in the WH!

Hypocracy is the last word that Republicans ought to throw around!

I could care less what you drive...although anybody driving a low gas mileage vehicle is also helping to drive up the price at the pump.
I just thought while you were trying to label Gayle as a hypocrite, you were doing a good jog labeling yourself as one.
as for Al Gore...I'd have to agree with you there...
I'd like to say that I cut down on my own 50 mile round trips to play in pool tournaments, to reduce my carbon footprint....but truth is it's a struggle to get by on these welfare payments, and I'm saving up for a big screen tv for football season

<span style="color: #000066">It's hysteria if it isn't part of your party's platform. Just like posters who post things that you don't agree with, are ranting. If there's nothing to it, why are there so many respected scientists who say we're at the tipping point? You think you know more then they do? If there's nothing to it, then why does the administration censor the studies we pay for? Why do the oil companies pay scientists to pooh pooh the whole thing. Now, they can't deny it, so even the oil companies are running adds trying to paint themselves as forerunners in reducing emmissions, breaking their necks to reduce emissions, yeah, right! </span>

<span style="color: #000066">Regardless of the fact that you don't have a clue how much fuel I burn in my boat, or in my car, while you, are driving the biggest gas guzzler on the highway. You started this, not me. </span>

<span style="color: #000066">Atleast he's trying to do something about it in other ways. He has spent money to improve his home, make it greener, just as he intends with the boat. It's the Republicans who want to drill, drill, drill, and Bush yapping about our oil addication, while he has done absolutely nothing about it in eight years. No hypocracy there?

I never heard you complaining about the Bush boys, running around in their gas guzzler boat, so stupid that they ran aground! Gee, guess they can't read a depth finder. </span>

Hope this helps.

<span style="color: #000066">It would help if you could make an attempt to post without making everything personal. I do it too, but usually as a reaction to you, not as an overall posting style. You've bashed me for years, have at it. The results of Bush are there for all to see, and you were among the first to jump on me for predicting exactly what a mess he'd leave this country in.</span>
