OK, now I know Al Gore won a Nobel Peace Prize for his Global Warming work, and I'm not trying to give my political views or anything, but since I didn't really pay attention to the other nominees. EDIT: I got an e-mail from a parents friend about this.

"A Lady Named Irena - a true story
There recently was a death of a 98 year old lady named Irena.


During WWII, Irena, got permission to work in the Warsaw Ghetto, as a Plumbing/Sewer specialist.


She had an ulterior motive...


She KNEW what the Nazi's plans were for the Jews, (being German).


Irena smuggled infants out in the bottom of her tool box she carried, and she carried in the back of her truck a Burlap sack, (for larger kids).


She also had a dog in the back, that she trained to bark when the Nazi soldiers let her in, and out of the ghetto.


The soldiers of course wanted nothing to do with the dog, and the barking covered the kids/infants noises.


During her time and course of doing this, she managed to smuggle out and save 2500 kids/infants.


She was caught, and the Nazi's broke both her legs, and arms, and beat her severely.


Irena kept a record of the names of all the kids she smuggled out, and kept them in a glass jar, buried under a tree in her back yard.


After the war, she tried to locate any parents that may have survived it, and reunited the family.


Most of course had been gassed.


Those kids she helped got placed into foster family homes, or adopted.


Last year Irena was nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize....


She LOST.


. . . . . . . Al Gore won, for doing a slide show on Global Warming"


So I ask you Pit. Do you think Al Gore deserved this Prize?

Al Gore does not deserve his Nobel Peace Prize.

I agree. At least not for his Global Warming slideshow.

Maybe for inventing the internet. But it's debatable whether that was an atrocity or an accomplishment worthy of praise.

First, the IPCC shared the prize with Mr. Gore; poor Al was just the one who got all the heat for it (no pun intended).

The criteria for the Nobel Peace Prize don't really fit anything that Al Gore has done, so I wouldn't say he's the best candidate for the prize by any means (unless you use some indirect criteria, like how the world is united behind the cause of bettering the climate situation, or how an uncontrolled global warming would eventually lead to nasty wars after everything goes to pot).

However, I think it's funny that the prize being awarded to Al Gore inspires more vocal controversy over the integrity of the Nobel Peace Prize than Yasser Arafat having won the Prize in '94, when it was actually more ironic than questionable.
No animals were harmed in order to bring you the above post. However, several photons were greatly inconvenienced.

And you're asking the pit about politics???

I can understand teaching the pit some simple addition facts, (I.E 2+3, for those of you who don't know it)

but politics????

That's seriously stretching it.

1 - I have a low opinion of Al Gore.
2 - I disagree with his political views.
3 - I disagree with his conclusions on the magnitude of man's impact on the environment.

From Wikipedia:
Nominations for the Prize may be made by a broad array of qualified individuals, including former recipients, members of national assemblies and congresses, university professors (in certain disciplines), international judges, and special advisors to the Prize Committee. In some years as many as 199 nominations have been received. The Committee keeps the nominations secret and asks that nominators do the same. Over time many individuals have become known as "Nobel Peace Prize Nominees", but this designation has no official standing.

4 - i have a lower opinion of you than I do of Al Gore.

Fine go ahead. Like I said, I just got this story from an e-mail sent by a parents friend so I just wanted to ask the Pit their thoughts. No reason to go on being an asshole about it.


EDIT: I failed. Oh well like that really affects anything. You guys should be proud that you pointed out a mistake of mine and feel all amazing about it.

You said no such thing.

If you're going to lie about what you said,
the very least you can do is go back to your original post and edit that lie in.

Most of the Global Warming stuff is a scam, like a business he has where you can pay to make up for destroying the Earth. The money supposedly goes to creating an alternative fuel source...which is directly causing the price of food skyrocket and I'm sure it has something to do with petrol companies charging way too much for gas.

So in essence, Al Gore has helped starve entire countries and caused most of us to lose a ton of money in gas.

So yes, I think he does deserve it.
I get very tense around apples...Well, I get very tense generally. I think I've fallen into the trap of blaming fruit.

TS the moment you wrote that line I had to take this post with a pinch of salt, the majority of the Germans weren't told what was going to happen with the Jews, indeed videos falsely showing the Jews working under nice conditions were broadcast throughout Nazi Germany.

And as far as Al Gore winning the prize, I'm fairly indifferent to it, to me awarding him the prize was far more of a political decision than a proper one.

true that scientists dont even know the whole history of the earths climate

but what they do know is the earths average temperature has been way higher than it is now and has increased more rapidly than it is right now

so i dont know how he can claim global warming is real

it might be but i doubt it
