2007 Nobel Peace Prize
23:34:12 Oct 13th 07 - Mr. Sigheart:

So Gore just won the Nobel Peace Prize and I think my respect for the human society just went down a couple notches. Discuss what you think of this.

23:39:37 Oct 13th 07 - Mr. Alexander The Great:

lol even  sharoon won that , well then satan , kolako , napleon can win it easily

23:43:18 Oct 13th 07 - Mr. Sigheart:

Well Hitler got nominated.

23:43:49 Oct 13th 07 - Mr. Alexander The Great:


00:21:25 Oct 14th 07 - Mr. Verll:

lol....did Hitler get nominated?!?!??!!?

They were on drugs or something...

00:49:08 Oct 14th 07 - Mr. Seloc:

who's Gore?

00:51:32 Oct 14th 07 - Mr. Sigheart:

Al Gore, ring any bells?

00:52:55 Oct 14th 07 - Mr. Verll:

Al Gore right?

00:59:38 Oct 14th 07 - Mr. Seloc:

Al Gore from futurama, the first empiror of the moon and inventor of the enviroment!

01:13:43 Oct 14th 07 - Mr. Andronicus Arthion:

climate change has nothing to do with why did he get the peace prize for it....
besides that  its so flawed i can't believe people believe him.

01:35:15 Oct 14th 07 - Mr. Erunion Telcontar:

Possibility number 1. They give extra points for effort...
Possibility number 2. He's starting to get his mind control powers working...
Possibility number 3. They were all so shocked at the horribleness they made a mistake.

02:10:05 Oct 14th 07 - Mr. Andronicus Arthion:

I'd say either #2 or #3

04:56:14 Oct 14th 07 - Sir Fizban:

What a freakin' joke. I didn't want to see Al Gore win based on something that isn't scientifically sound and I'm from his 'home state' of TN.

Then again, we didn't want him for Preseident either. Anyways, I would've rather had Rush Limbaugh take the peace prize than Gore. 

12:32:05 Oct 14th 07 - Mr. Mushashi:

odd, indeed ... dunno if it is really bad, but yes, it seems debatable.

he didn't get it just because of his environmental speeches, he's also pro some global redistribution of 'wealth'.  i think the idea, why they gave him the prize, is that his 'movement' 'claims'(?) to want to make the world a better place.

i have no idea about who is 'right' in this ...

fizban, didn't that election end in a rather farcelike episode in your history? (again, a lot of discussion exists on that topic ... impossible for me to see what is true, but wasn't it like 50-50)

13:54:01 Oct 14th 07 - Mr. Absolut:

he got it for inventing the internet, duh

15:57:20 Oct 14th 07 - Mr. Sigheart:

@Mr Mushashi He got it for Global Warming also those movement claims are completely faulty and refuted by most of the professional world.

16:27:55 Oct 14th 07 - Mr. Mushashi:

granted, there are misrepresentations in what he says, but completely false? and most of the professional world?  ... i think not.

he's to onesided, yes, he 'forgets' to mention what doesn't fit in his 'discours'. (or exagerates)

the issue isn't really 'black and white', scientists can figure out what is going on, so, what he did was make the discussion global (the way he does that is indeed debatable, i won't argue about that) (and ofcourse, the message he brings is not really beneficial to some people)

17:08:42 Oct 14th 07 - Mr. Oamawt:

i think al gore got it because there's really no one to give it to :(  who's peaceful this year anyway?

Adolf Hitler was Time Magazine's Man of the Year some years back :)

17:13:32 Oct 14th 07 - Mr. Asystole:

In 1938, so was Stalin in 1939 and 1942. But Time's criterion isn't the same as the Nobel Prize. It's a stretch to say that environmentalism has a lot to do with peace. You could make an argument around depleting resources causing war in the future and such...but countries have always fought over scarce resources.

17:57:56 Oct 14th 07 - Mr. Sigheart:

@Mushashi First of all I meant there's not enough variables in his everyone get together, he hasn't even done anything to make his idea's I've got the some peace idea's to but you don't see me getting a Nobel Peace Prize. You have to actually do something and second  Al Gore's form of Global Warming is one of the biggest lie's/misconception in the 21st century. His movie An Inconvient Truth was full of lies and is one of the least scientific movies I've ever seen. Not only that but Al Gore says Global Warming is man made, not true 95% is natural. His idea's are unstable at best and everything that's true was taken from things that are facts you don't deserve the Nobel Peace Prize.

18:34:43 Oct 14th 07 - Mr. Mushashi:

:-) that's more or less my view aswell sigheart, but saying he's all bad and wrong is not right either ... give him some credit for starting the debate/discussion. create some awareness.

his efforts also help to stimulate new productionprocesses, thinking about the future, etc.   (just at my work, we can do more and better things now, just because the politicians listen a bit more ...)

people always fear change, the exageration helps a bit (although it is also contraproductive)("you ask more, because you know you won't get everything you want...")

and true ... he doesn't really give a solution ... but if we are all concious about what effect our actions might have, maybe we'll think twice about things? maybe it will be easier to get things done?  (is it just marketing his idea? or is it political? i can't tell)(i have my doubts aswell, like i said, it is not black and white ... those who oppose him also give false facts, they also use only what is 'convenient' for them)

18:38:11 Oct 14th 07 - Mr. Sigheart:

Yeah just so you know Musha*beep*his is just for his political agenda, not for world peace.

03:10:51 Oct 16th 07 - Mr. Soccerfreedom:

screw gore.

21:54:39 Oct 16th 07 - Sir Verll:

gory gore

03:38:59 Oct 19th 07 - Mr. Chimey The Chonga:

Wait a minute.... He got the Nobel Peace prize for inventing Global Warming? That sonofa*beep*!

05:13:42 Oct 19th 07 - Mr. Arthion:

my school made me watch his movie twice it sucked.
Both teachers were freakin global warming fanatics.....though the second time watching it I could see so many more holes.

17:33:45 Oct 19th 07 - Mr. Walker:

Well, by now everybody knows, global cooling will be the next catastrophic climatic event. The politicians have it all wrong.

11:55:37 Oct 20th 07 - Mr. Dragonfly:

i mean think about it if underdeveloped countries cant grow like the west did, There wont be a shift in power so there will be no power strugle wich will result that there will be No WAR's only puny upriseings wich will be supressed by their dictators as is proper.
Wich is considered peace and no big deal :D.

Evil has no face Even the most seemingly noble couse can be abbused to do the worst things.

11:57:38 Oct 20th 07 - Mr. Dragonfly:

i personaly belive were relativily safe from extinction untill all of the ice melts at some piont after wich we will be Lost.( the low areas have more to worry about :p)
