Speaking for myself, I cannot say I was surprised, rather a bit disappointment. But it´s not as if the decision is shocking. The Comittee is well known for its leftists views. What has Gore done for world peace??
That's not what the Nobel Peace Prize is about anyway. It's about the relationship of the winner's activities to world socialism.
Of course, the socialists believe that when we have universal socialism, we'll have peace.
Actually, just the thought of him being awarded the same award as Mother Teresa Makes me nauseous!
I have heard that Al Gore in one of his books wrote that children in Silesia, Poland are transported to underground coal mines to protect them from infected atmosphere in this region caused by industry. This statement place him somewhere between Grimm brothers and Ron Hubard. Either he is an idiot or treat this nonsense as a good business exploiting ignorance of public opinion.
Wasn’t there lots of talk about Bore spending googles of dollars on campaigning to get this prize? If so I’d like to hear more about it.
