The Nobel Peace Prize is now Officially Irrelevant

Al Gore's whose "slide show" and the movie he produced from it is filled with inaccuracies, unsubstantiated scientific leaps of faith and outright lies. The UN, whose promotion of Man Made Global Warming is clearly a lightly veiled installment in its quest to consolidate world power.

And yet the Nobel Peace Prize is awarded to them?

This clearly marks the end of any neutrality or credibility on the part of the Nobel committee.

"Awarding it to Al Gore cannot be seen as anything other than a political statement. Awarding it to the IPCC is well-founded," said Bjorn Lomborg, author of "The Skeptical Environmentalist."

He criticized Gore's film as having "some very obvious mistakes, like the argument that we're going to see six meters of sea-level rise," he said.

"They (Nobel committee) have a unique platform in getting people's attention on this issue, and I regret they have used it to make a political statement."

I was awakened this morning by the sound of your head popping.

Good times...

Picture the scene where Cameron is riding around downtown Chicago in the back seat of his father's Ferari, driven by Ferris Bueller when he notices the mileage...

...in fact, stay tuned.

Nah, the Peace Prize long ago lost its cachet--somewhere around when Yasser Arafat won, or maybe Kofi Annan. The idea that the winner should have something to do with "establishing peace" seems to have disappeared some time during the Carter administration. How else can we explain that the most famous son of north central Illinois--you know, the guy who ENDED the Cold War--didn't get one?

Nobel would be spinning in his grave, if that were possible.
