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.
