2007 Noble Peace Prize
Former U.S. vice president (1992-2000) and 2000 Democrat presidential candidate Al Gore shares the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize with the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. They were cited by the Nobel Committee "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."
Earlier this week (Wednesday, October 10, 2007) "a British judge ruled that Al Gore's award winning climate change documentary An Inconvenient Truth should only be shown in schools with guidance notes to prevent political indoctrination." The judge went on to say "some of the errors in Mr Gore's work had arisen in 'the context of alarmism and exaggeration' to support the former US vice-president's thesis on global warming." The judge set out nine alleged errors in the film in which statements were made that were not supported by the current mainstream scientific consensus.
Maybe the Nobel Prize Committee should reconsider!
