    Now he's on the list with MLK Jr., Mother Theresa, and the Dalai Lama.

    That's awesome, couldn't think of a better person to get it.

    I still think he's a douchebag, though.

    He got the prize for whayt he did with the knowledge he had. He didn't just talk, he went out and did something, he went international and shared his views. He became an activist....a devout warmologist.

    ROFL! Couldn't have put it better myself.

    A girl in our accounting department is a froth-at-the-mouth conservative, I can't wait until she comes in so I can tease her about this. Recently she said, and I'm not making this up, that the Weather Channel had a liberal slant because they talked about global warming... :shock:

    Just watched An Inconvenient Truth again the other day. Good for him. He deserves to win it. Plus Al Gores son has the best pot... so he gets extra points for that.

    To be fair, Al Gore's been trying to wake people up on Global Warming for almost 30 years.

    So good for him.

    This is entirely Hypothetical, but:

    Say 75-100 years from now, the world starts experiencing a cooling trend in global temperatures. Carbon monoxide productions have been on their usual growth and everything else has remained fairly consistent. At this point, Scientists and researches confirm that the world does just go through natural and periodical phases of warming and cooling, and "Global Warming" is debunked.

    Does Gore get his Nobel Prize revoked? Because at that point, it would be like awarding UFO, Lochness Monster, Abominable Snowmen enthusiasts for their efforts.

    Keep in mind, all of this is entirely hypothetical.

    if someone is stupid enough that they think there is no such thing as global warming, (i understand that it is sometimes polotical bullshit) but i mean with the overwealming evidence does she still believe that global warming isnt real? if the democrats wanted to start some slander they should make up catholicism...(no offence to the catholics here)

    Good for him. Too bad hes not running for president, but then again I can see how he does not want to deal with that bullshit anymore.

    What a huge surprise...not really, I would have been surprised if he hadn't won the dynamite award; he joins the prestigious ranks of Yasser Arafat and the woman who said HIV was invented for the purpose of mass extermination.

    I love these types of graphs. They make no sense at all, and are completely useless! Great for proving points to dumb people!

    If I'm reading this correctly the only solution is to start hijacking cruise ships and drinking rum nonstop.

    I just heard Al Gore and stopped paying attention.

    It's kind of how I do with Dick Cheney.

    Man, we've had some loser VPs.
