The Last Nobel, The Angels Did Say

The Nobel Peace Prize has been announced and the winner is...Al Gore? WTF?

"He is probably the single individual who has done most to create greater worldwide understanding of the measures that need to be adopted," said Ole Danbolt Mjoes, chairman of the Nobel committee.
peace - n.
1 : a state of tranquillity or quiet: as a : freedom from civil disturbance b : a state of security or order within a community provided for by law or custom
2 : freedom from disquieting or oppressive thoughts or emotions
3 : harmony in personal relations
4 a : a state or period of mutual concord between governments b : a pact or agreement to end hostilities between those who have been at war or in a state of enmity
5 -- used interjectionally to ask for silence or calm or as a greeting or farewell
Which of these definitions is the one they are using? As I read and re-read them the only thing I can think is I need a little peace (definition #2).

Here's a quick quiz. Which of the following people/groups has done the least to slow/prevent global warming?
  1. Hitler
  2. The Khmer Rouge
  3. Owners of sonogram clinics in India
  4. Turks
  5. AIDS
  6. Al Gore
If you look from the opposite direction, who has done the most to accelerate global warming, I think you could easily choose the Catholic Church with it's be fruitful and multiply, anti-abortion and anti-contraception policies. Sure, they get a little credit for the Crusades and such but it clearly hasn't been enough. That would make the Pope the Hitler of the Global Warming Holocaust. Congratulations. Your Nobel Prize is on the way.

I can't believe it, but the Nobel committee has jumped the shark.

Yes and of course he deserved it more than the woman running against him. I mean she only saved 2500 kids from the Holocaust. Yeah they definately made the right decision.

You're right she hasn't stupified the world into believing utter nonsense lately. Like I said he totally deserved the nobel peace prize.
