Al Gore Wins!?

Apparently Al Gore won this year's Nobel Prize for Peace. I'm not really sure how raising environmental concerns are really worth of a prize for peace. If that be the case the Nobel people should have taken the "Times" approach and given the award to all the hippies, granolas, and crunchies of the world. Maybe Gore can melt the hearts of all the Terrorists of the world by raising the concern that if bombs aren't ended maybe a massive ice storm fit with cosmic radiation and solar winds will come and blow the all away. Perhaps he is trying to convince all the warmongers that if the ice caps melt and global warming ends life on earth there will be no means to make war. I just don't see how Gore spread, encourage, or procured peace.

Rumors are he might be running for president now. Well, he still won't get my vote unless he goes down to New Orleans and rebuilds my house.

From the article:
OSLO, Norway - Former Vice President Al Gore and the U.N.'s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change won the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize Friday for their efforts to spread awareness of man-made climate change and lay the foundations for counteracting it.

"I am deeply honored to receive the Nobel Peace Prize," Gore said in a statement. "We face a true planetary emergency. The climate crisis is not a political issue, it is a moral and spiritual challenge to all of humanity."
