Nobel Peace Prize for Gore and UN Panel is Bad Choice

Al Gore and the UN’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) are co-winners of the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize “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”.

What a shame that the Nobel committee chose to make a political statement instead of honoring true advocates for peace or individuals who advanced causes that promote peace.

Why did the Nobel committee not award the prize to the Buddhist monks who are being brutalized and killed for their efforts to promote human rights and democratic reforms in Myanmar (Burma)? The international recognition and prize money alone would have given their peaceful efforts a much stronger voice. Instead the Nobel committee chose to honor an environmental hypocrite whose work does not reflect a balanced view of science. Shame on them!
