Al Gore was in Oslo a week ago giving his 'inconvenient truth' global warming speech to a crowd that included the chairman of the Nobel Peace Prize committee.
Norwegian members of parliament Børge Brende and Heidi Sørensen, who joined in their nomination despite political differences, (Heidi Sørensen is a member of the Socialist Left Party), jointly say that global climate is a fight for peace.
The Right: Rush Limbaugh said on his show on Friday that the former vice president was there lobbying the committee; that he shouldn't do this but rather have dignity about such things.
The Left: ABC news reported: "There seems little chance of a link between his visits and any dreams of winning the peace prize, since the trips were planned well ahead of his Nobel nomination being announced."
Nominations for this year's peace prize, which is awarded by the five-member Nobel Committee in Oslo, had to be submitted by Feb. 1st.
The winner is announced in mid-October, the prize presented on December 10, the anniversary of the death of its creator, Swedish industrialist Alfred Nobel, which prize includes 10-million-krona ($1.4 million).
Let me ask you a couple of questions: Whether Gore is lobbying the Nobel committee for their prize or not, do you think he should get it? Even more: Do you think Global Warming is a PEACE (prize) issue?
Global Warming and Peace - let me see - can I connect the dots between the two? Nope. This just another effort by environmentalists around the world to advance their global warming theories and fear tactics.
Al & Tipper Gore's home uses 20 x's the energy of the average American household, and when challenged by Sen. Inhoffe to basically practice what he preaches, Gore refused to even answer.
