Donald Trump Wants Al Gore's Nobel Peace Prize Stripped

Billionaire real estate tycoon Donald Trump wants Al Gore's Nobel Peace Prize stripped from the Global Warmingist-in-Chief.

"With the coldest winter ever recorded, with snow setting record levels up and down the coast, the Nobel committee should take the Nobel Prize back, " Trump recently told members of his Westchester, New York, country club according to the New York Post.

The Post continued (h/t Polijam):

"Gore wants us to clean up our factories and plants in order to protect us from global warming, when China and other countries couldn't care less. It would make us totally noncompetitive in the manufacturing world, and China, Japan and India are laughing at America's stupidity."

According to the Post, the crowd of 500 stood and applauded.

I know it's funny to joke about, but we really make ourselves look as dumb as them when we talk about how cold it was in a certain part of the US as though the US is the whole world.

Let them parrot the nonsense anecdotal evidence; we're better than that. Do we really want to answer every "It was hot today where I am!" with a "It was cold today where I am!"? The media is having a field day making fun of people who make these arguments.

And yes, Gore does deserve his Nobel Prize stripped. But not because it was cold in New York this winter.

I think his Nobel is on par with the other Nobel Prizes. They award Socialism.

What about the IPCC? and NObama?

In fact how about kicking out the whole bunch in the Nobel Peace Price committee - who are nothing more than activist enviromarxists!!

This makes it sound as if the world-savvy Trump believes the Nobel Prize is something more than a liberal mutual-admiration-society-endorsement.

He's already shown his judgment to be seriously flawed in endorsing Obama. Now he's making himself look naive.

I agree (and have argued) that localized, cold weather is no more an argument against AGW than localized warm weather is an argument for it.

However, over the next 5 years, I believe we’ll see that this winter is more than that, that this cold spell is solid evidence of what those of us who have studied the AGW BS have been calling it, part of a climate cycle. The snow we’re seeing is part of a 30-year cycle exacerbated by the “Nino’s.”

And we are also very likely heading out of a much longer warming trend into a longer cooling trend. This may end up being critical because the AGW crowd has succeeded in cutting back on all that “bad stuff” that has made the US such a major food producer. With those cutbacks and the coming cold spell, it is very likely we will all suffer food shortages very quickly.

This past summer, the western provinces of Canada filed for a record number of government subsidies due to crop failure because of the colder, wetter weather. That is likely to drop down into our bread basket.

So, while I completely agree with you, I think we do need to use every opportunity we have to shut up the Statists that have been using every opportunity they have to destroy this country. I know it isn’t the best of Socratic and Aristotelean formal logic, but we have to use whatever comes our way.

The weather of this winter combined with ClimateGate coming out of East Anglia — to me — were both a godsend, and not an advantage I will toss aside.

Just my two zinc pennies.

Outside of this winters weather, the prize should be stripped for the nearly daily revelations of yet another section and claim in the IPCC report being false.

I fully agree with you. The drop in stratospheric water vapor seems to be the primary cause of the decline, and the warmers have no explanation for it. It’s just important that we talk about climate (long-term trends) rather than weather, lest we open ourselves up to the same sort of ridicule they open themselves up to.

I have no problem with scrubbing toxic emissions from smoke stacks. I absolutely appose trying to eliminate the emission of CO2, witch is a harmless emission that we should not spend one penny trying to reduce.

That being said, if China and developing countries want to sell us goods they should have to match our environmental standards or pay tariffs. I am sick of sending our industry overseas after we tighten our standards only to have plants move overseas and pollute another country.

Donald Trump Wants Al Gore's Nobel Peace Prize Stripped

Better yet, let's strip the Nobel Prize committee from the responsibilities of selecting who gets the awards. It's nothing more than a charade and a forum for left-wing agenda promotions and propaganda.

Alternately, let's come up with another option for selecting those who are truly worthy of recognition for actual life accomplishments and who have made this world a better place. If the Nobel name is not available, let's name it something else, like "World Merit Prize" perhaps?

I think the committee realized not long after the announcement that Obama’s peace prize was a huge mistake.

I agree that local, anecdotal evidence is worthless when discussing climate change. But I’d propose that what we’ve seen this winter is far from local. When you have the great majority, of the continental United States under uncommon Winter conditions, from Washington to Florida and back up to New York and beyond, that’s far from local. Yet, even when discussing ‘local’ as in where I live, the past three years have seen lower temperatures year-long. Our Summers have been slightly more temperate and our Winters remarkable more troublesome. That IS a trend, albeit a short one.

Things are changing, and it’s not getting warmer. And combined with the meteoric breakdown of AGW ‘evidence’, and the obvious collusion that supported it, AGW as a science is coming to be rightly seen as the World’s greatest folly to date.

A few months ago I heard the founder of the Weather Channel say that he and about 30 others were making plans to sue Egore. Has anyone heard the status of this suit?
