Al Gore winning the Nobel is as bad as Michael Moore winning an Oscar!

Definition of the Nobel Prize:

"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".

Hmm and that applies to Al Gore --how?

Al Gore's controversial "inconvenient truth" is about as deserving of that as Michael Moore's Fahrenheit 911 was of an Oscar. Pure overdramatics, sensationalizing, speculation and hype----but no substance.

For every claim of global warming there's an equal claim disputing it. We've only been charting the global temperatures for a little over a century. The earth has been around for billions of years. I have a hard time believing that glaciers have never melted, that ocean levels have never risen, that hurricanes, droughts, wildfires, tornadoes and other natural disasters have never devastated the lands.

What? The earth was perfect for billions of years till the age of industry just over 100 years ago?

Is the environment being harmed? Yes and in many ways. However, I do not believe that 100 years of industry has led us to the overdramatized-it's-the-end-of-the-world-as-we-know it status Al Gore would have us believe.

What I'm waiting for is when "going green" really becomes the "in" thing and Al Gore and his political cronies have control over the entire green market.

I guess then we'll finally know what's in it for them.

  1. It's all quite a bad joke, isn't it? He gets the million dollar prize money and recognition he doesn't deserve. Yes, it's his cause du jour but so what. He wants the red carpet and the big speaking fees. If he lived as he preaches, it might be different.

    He makes me sick.

  2. Al Gore was and still is an idiot where was all his good intentions when he was in office and could have done some thing about our current problems. Oh I know his head was up his ass and his face was in bills?

    Well, if we stop destroying the environment and causing climate change then we might avoid the wars that will come if the coasts of all the continents flood and destroy most of the cities in the world. By the way, Florida will be very soggy toast then. Where will you and your children move to?

  4. It's a load of crap. Many reputable scientists including renown pioneer meteorologist Dr. William Gray have criticized the idea that human being have caused global warming. Have we contributed? I believe so, did we cause it? No. The earth goes through cycles, this is just another cycle.

    We've been hearing about global warming since my parents were children yet the earth saw cooler temperates for the three decades between the 1940's and 1970's.

    Al Gore is a politician, not a scientist. He has simply jumped on the global warming bandwagon because it's the "in" thing. For him to receive credit for this is outrageous.
