Czech President Vaclav Klaus cast doubt on Gore's contribution to the cause of peace, the ostensible purpose of the Norwegian prize.
In a statement, the climate change sceptic said he was "a bit surprised that Al Gore has received a peace prize because the connection between his activities and world peace are vague and not very clear".
ONE of the world's foremost meteorologists has called the theory that helped Al Gore share the Nobel Peace Prize "ridiculous" and the product of "people who don't understand how the atmosphere works".....
"We'll look back on all of this in 10 or 15 years and realise how foolish it was," Dr Gray said.
True indeed. Remember Global Cooling in the 70s? Let's cap it off from an organization typically, well almost universally subservient to the Liberals, The Union Leader. Read it all, it's worth it.
He did nothing to advance world peace other than for these morons who run the Nobel Committee to try to bash Bush. Tough shit. When is it the USA's responsibility to do all the R&D on technological advances and simply give all the profits right over to China, India, and other nations who will be able to implement and build the technology cheaper due to depressed labor costs? The world is looking for a free handout and they want the USA to fit the bill and that can't happen. I'm all for free trade, but innovation comes at a cost. Patents on technology help companies recover the cost of R&D while encouraging innovation by providing a means to be creative while having a safety net so that they do not simply fork over billions of dollars only to see nothing in return. Should that situation arise a great loss of jobs would occur and individual 401(k)s and investment would drop, resulting in a massive recession and/or depression. Peace, in this case, is the worldwide left waging open war on capitalism and President Bush. Gore did nothing to reduce standing armies. He did nothing to stop any ongoing wars. What about the Monks in Burma? What about the people trying to make a difference in Darfur? How many more examples are there. This is a joke plain and simple. If Hitler, Stalin, Castro, and Mussolini can be nominated for a peace prize, how seriously should it be taken anyway? Global Warming is a scam, and Al Gore and his compatriots are getting rich off of it, so hey, let's give him the award, increase the movement to invest in his and his buddies front companies while they consume more energy than the average man, woman, and small business and then complain about the person who drives 50 miles to work each day that they are an energy glutton. Good business plan I suppose, but peaceful? Hardly.
