Gore to share Nobel Peace Prize with Canadian

According to Investors Business Daily, Al Gore will be awarded the Nobel Peace prize and share it with Canadian climate researcher Sheila Watt-Cloutier.

IBD writes: “…a couple of global warming alarmists. With dozens of wars raging, the committee couldn’t find a single person laboring honorably for peace?”


“Court Identifies Eleven Inaccuracies in Al Gore’s ‘An Inconvenient Truth’” – “Here’s something American media are virtually guaranteed to not report: a British court has determined that Al Gore’s documentary “An Inconvenient Truth” contains at least eleven material falsehoods.”

Looks like Al will be the first “warmmonger” to win a Peace prize by pitching a faulty slide show.

I wonder if, should we see a global cooling period in about 20 years as solar activity wanes as the sunspot cycle takes a big dip, if the Nobel committee will ask for that Peace Prize back like the Olympic Committee did for sprinter Marion Jones?

The peace prize will be announced on Friday, 11:00 CET. So far the prize committee has not been known to leak anything in advance. IBD is just speculating. There are, however, quite a number of people getting better odds at the moment. =)

I didn’t know that they were giving nobel prize for propagenda.

Since “AIT” has pretty much been exposed as a fraud, I suspect the Nobel Peace Prize would be a reward for all the other things Algore has done to promote world peace, like……like…..heck, I can’t really think of any right off the top of my head.

Considering the list of past “deserving” recipients (Arafat, Menchu, Annan, etc), Gore fits right in.
Should be renamed the Nobel “Piece-of-the-Action” Prize.

Muhammad Yunus – Inventor of the micro loan for poor countries and specifically so women in these countries could start their own businesses and get their families out of poverty.
I say give it to him again.

This shows the total degeneration of the Nobel into a political propaganda piece. Poor old Nobel must be rolling over in his grave.

“…be rolling over in his grave.”
I’m not so sure. I seem to recall that the prize was established as a penance for the harm done by his invention.

I don’t believe in conspiracy theories. But there is zeitgeist, German for spirit of the times and Aufheung, or the swelling tide of a new paradigm emerging from the dialectic, or evolutionary interplay, of earlier quite unrelated concepts.
I like to think of history in terms of surfing, not net surfing, but the real thing. When you surf, you spend a lot of time sitting and paddling on a board watching the swells, looking for patterns. Good surfers often spend hours sitting on a cliff above the ocean studying the gestalt of the beach, tide, wind, current and rip, and even the scent, before taking to the water.
History’s dialectic cycles come in waves too. Although how these cycles will physically play out on the beach of human condition is far too nonlinear a problem to be usually solvable.
Whether or not Gore becomes a Noble Laureate, what we are witnessing is the sublation of the theoretical basis for AGW into a much more profound and holistic world-view. Note the actual scientific truth or falseness of AGW’s specific claims is no longer relevant in the sublated larger picture.
This emergent world-view, properly called a mythology, is based on a fervent belief in the prophecy of coming apocalypse. What is unique about the Anthropogenic Global Warming Apocalypse Myth (AGWAM) is its crown of scientific credibility, handed to its proponents on a silver platter by Western civilization’s most prestigious scientific institutions. Waves of apocalypse prophecies come and go with predictable regularity, however, this is the first one with NASA’s seal of good housekeeping approval upon it.
The power that such scientific credibility bestows upon AGWAM renders rational critics of the myth impotent–heretics in the same caste of untouchables as creationists, or worse, shills of evil pollution producing industries. Debate is stilled. Truthiness is more highly valued than the facts, as illustrated by Hansen’s, Mann’s, et al, diligence in introducing post-modern relativism into scientific methodology.
AGWAM is the next perfect wave. Put in historical context it might well be the most perfect wave in mass, amplitude and longevity since the Bolshevik Revolution.
Al has been sitting on his board in the swell zone waiting and watching for a while now. He went for, but missed, the Internet wave. Didn’t even see the Islamofascist one coming, but AGW apocalypse myth wave he bloody nailed it and is now shooting the tube while humming the Hawaii Five O theme song. And it looks like all his mates have jump on his wave as well. (Too bad they missed the tsunami warning while taking a smoko with Demonweed.)
That’s where the surfing analogy breaks down because, if the beach is the human condition, this particular perfect wave isn’t surfable. It will arrive on the beach not as a lovely foaming tube but as a chaotically churning tsunami with immense destructive force.
Gore and his mates, including the institutions that have bestowed credibility upon the Anthropogenic Global Warming Apocalypse Myth, may well live to see their creation spiral out of control.

“I didn’t know that they were giving nobel prize for propagenda.”
Well, think of it as a step up. considering that they usually award it for terrorism.
“I don’t believe in conspiracy theories. But there is zeitgeist, German for spirit of the times and Aufheung, or the swelling tide of a new paradigm emerging from the dialectic, or evolutionary interplay, of earlier quite unrelated concepts.”
I’ve always referred to that phenomenon as “class action conspiracy”.

Unfortunately, the court action by the British truck driver does not keep AIT out of the classroom. The teaching guidance that was issued in response to the court order is severely slanted and the brainwashing will continue only slightly abated.

AGW is indeed a interesting phenomena. Bloggers around the world have discovered. It generates more and more genuine debate than any other topic. Yet, at the same time AGW is in all its core elements somewhere between debateable and utter rubbish.
It’s like a complicated puzzle where we are all free to search for clues. I must admit I find the topic endlessly fascinating. The weather meets eschatology, new clues every day and I get to pit my wits against celebs like Gore (OK, not much of a challenge I admit).
I don’t really care if Gore gets the Nobel gong (Australian mildly derogatory term for an award) or not. I’m waiting to see if he runs for US President. That’s when the fun will really start.

Lord, I hope not. I sized him up years ago. He’s what Heinlein referrred to as “a mouse studying to be a rat”. (What kind of sin does one have to commit to get booted out of divinity school?)

Being a Swede, I would be deeply ashamed if Al Gore would win the Price. Mind You it is really the norwegian part of the Nobel committe that give this price and you should know that the same polish/irish jokes you are telling here are told in Sweden about the norwegians. They are simply not taken seriously since the day Kissinger got the peace price.

October 12, 2007 2:03 am

Well F**k that. He actually got it.

October 12, 2007 4:01 am

Confirmed. Al wins.
Pardon me while I go vomit….

Don’t feel too bad. It’s probably better this way. (No doubt Kim or Mugabe was runner-up.)
