Al Gore now has a Nobel Peace Prize to pair with his Academy Award for "An Inconvenient Truth." But neither accolade makes him any less a liar. As it did when it gave the prize to Jimmy Carter in 2002, the Norwegian Nobel Committee honored Mr. Gore and the U.N. Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change to make a left-wing political statement. Though it did not mention "An Inconvenient Truth" by name, the committee spoke glowingly of Mr. Gore's political activity, lectures, films and books for reducing the "danger of violent conflicts and wars."
The film details Mr. Gore's arguments on global warming, but his arguments are a tissue of lies. Justice Michael Burton of the High Court of London used "exaggeration," "apocalyptic vision," "distinctly alarmist" and "one-sided" to describe the film. If teachers show it to students without disclosing those lies or presenting contrary viewpoints, they could be charged under British law with the crime of political indoctrination.
Climate experts admitted in court no evidence supports Mr. Gore's assertions that warming caused Hurricane Katrina, the melting snows of Mount Kilimanjaro and the bleaching of coral reefs. In the case of drowning polar bears and the evacuation of some Pacific atolls, they couldn't even document those phenomena occurred.
The court dismissed as scientific impossibilities Mr. Gore's claims that sea levels will rise 23 feet in the next century; the Gulf Stream will stop, throwing Europe into an ice age; and warming will melt Greenland glaciers quickly, causing sea levels to rise dangerously. And the suggestion that the Antarctic ice cap is melting is refuted by "evidence ... that it is in fact increasing," Justice Burton said.
By endorsing Mr. Gore and his lies, the Nobel committee will not further its goal of contributing to "a sharper focus on the processes and decisions that appear to be necessary to protect the world's future climate." Rather, it will preclude objective, rational debate on climate change, and the world will be more dangerous for it.
Some VPs are QUITE effective, IMHO:
“I tell ya the guy is preparing to jump into the presidential sweepstakes, and I’ll wager he’ll snatch the nomination from Her Thighness.”
I agree. He hates the Clintons with the white-hot intensity of a thousand suns...which is where all of this Global Warming cr@p is coming from in the first place.
Hell hath no fury like an Algore scorned.
I welcome it. The left yaps on and on about how the GOP is in such disarray? These dopes are hellbent for leather to undermine one another.
Again, I welcome it. :)

The Big Lie just got bigger.
clinton/gore : tough of terror, tender on mother earth.
"His" movie won an Oscar, but the Award goes to the producer, and he didn't produce his own film.
