“Gore and IPCC share the 2007 Nobel peace prize and they were able to join Yasser Arafat and other unlikely winners of this occassionally prestigious award.” Lubos Motl, The Reference Frame
“The relationship between his [Gore’s] activities and world peace is unclear and indistinct,” . . . “It rather seems that Gore’s doubting of basic cornerstones of the current civilization does not contribute to peace.” Czech president Vaclav Klaus
“We’re brainwashing our children,” said Dr Gray, 78, a long-time professor at Colorado State University. “They’re going to the Gore movie [An Inconvenient Truth] and being fed all this. It’s ridiculous,” “We’ll look back on all of this in 10 or 15 years and realise how foolish it was,” “The human impact on the atmosphere is simply too small to have a major effect on global temperatures,” “It bothers me that my fellow scientists are not speaking out against something they know is wrong,” he said. “But they also know that they’d never get any grants if they spoke out. I don’t care about grants.” Dr William Gray
The awarding of the Nobel prize to Gore and the IPCC tells us more about the politicization and current status of the Nobel prize than it does raise awareness or contribute to a lessening of the rancor which is building and now only going to get far worse… Neither Gore nor the IPCC need this award or the money that goes with it, so one must ask the question as to why give to either?
The answer is purely political, Nobel nonsense.
