Yesterday the committee that awards the Nobel Peace Prize made their announcement of their choices for the award. The winners were Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change based in Geneva Switzerland that was founded in 1988. The other half of the prize went to former Vice President algore. The reason they cited for awarding this prize to such questionable nominees were "for their efforts to build up and disseminate greater knowledge about man-made climate change, and to lay the foundations for the measures that are needed to counteract such change".
Since the release of the movie that algore created called “An Inconvenient Truth” it has been shown that the facts that algore used are questionable at best and an outright lie at worst. There is no question the planet earth is in a warming mode and scientists that are free to speak agree that this is a natural and inevitable function due to the many natural and uncontrollable factors that affect the earth. We will have to make adjustments like growing different crops in areas where certain crops are grown now but no drastic measures will be needed to solve such natural changes.
I liken the scare tactics algore has used to those that I read about when I was young. Christopher Columbus was a pretty slick guy too and he used a trick on native Indians in 1504; Columbus learned that there would be a total eclipse of the moon. (Acting as if he was religious), he told the Indians that God would punish them by removing the light unless they promised to supply the Spaniards with plenty of cassava, corn and fish...The Indians did not believe this but before the eclipse was complete, they, with great howling and lamentation, came running from every direction to the ships laden with provisions, praying to Columbus to intercede with God in their behalf."
Sound familiar? I’m sure it does, it is exactly the same principle algore is using to promote himself and his phony cause to make money and possibly make another run for the Presidency. The once highly prestigious Nobel Peace that was created by Alfred Nobel to reward those that show uncommon dedication to excellence has now been rendered meaningless by recognizing algore for his petty parlor trick.
