The Nobel Peace Prize

I normally won’t blog about things like this .. but ..

Al Gore has been nominated to win the Nobel Peace Prize for his efforts in fighting global warming?!

Ok, I’m sorry, but where does Peace come into play in the fight of global warming?

Originally Alfred Nobel intended the Peace Prize to be awarded “to the person who shall have done the most or the best work for fraternity between the nations, for the abolition or reduction of standing armies and for the holding and promotion of peace congresses”.

Somehow, I think there are people more deserving of this particular award than Gore.

    I could name numerous people who I too believe is more qualified for this nomination and award. Obviously being an actor is promoting peace. I guesss the folks at the Nobel commity do not do any investigation on there own with regards to the claims that film makes. Anyway, I am with you, this guy doesn’t deserve it.
