Did Al Gore Deserve to Win the Nobel Peace Prize?

The 2007 Nobel Peace Prize was just awarded to the International Panel on Climate Change and former US Vice President Al Gore.

The award was "for their efforts to build up and disseminate greater knowledge about man-made climate change, and to lay the foundations for the measures that are needed to counteract such change"

Peace Prize? Even in this blog all people are doing is arguing about what he has to say. Nothing peaceful about that.

I don't know of any countries that laid down their weapons because Mr. Gore said it got hotter by a degree.

I agree the climate is changing...but it always has been. I agree that this time humans may even play a large role in it. So? Who's to say that the current average temperature is the best one? Maybe 2 or 3 degrees warmer would mean more bountiful crops. We came out of the little ice age just a couple hundred years ago. Guess what got us out of it? GLOBAL WARMING. I don't think anyone was complaining then.

The oceans may rise a foot....they may rise 5 feet. It's not going to be a huge wall of water flowing in like a tsunami. It's pretty easy. Pick up your umbrella and beach towel and move back. About a foot a year should do it. I think we can manage that pace.

If you own a home on the beach....well, give me a break. You probably paid a 200% premium for having it there. You can afford to move.
