Yes folks, it's true ... Al Gore has been nominated for
the Nobel Peace Prize ... not for his actions to combat
any suffering in [insert any place in the world] but
rather for his efforts to combat global warming!

If Nobel were alive today ... he'd explode!

Climate change doesn't cause suffering? Living under water would be great.

I think he stopped bothering after Kissinger got the prize for bombing
Cambodia.

Global warming is already causing considerable suffering
in the world (not least in Australia), and it's going to get
much, much worse before the RWLs finally stop trying to
block attempts to do anything about it.

Have you read any biographies of Nobel and/or histories
of his prizes?

It is a silly time to choose the north. The wet season finally started
last week and there are a couple of mean looking lows hanging around in
the gulf threatening to become cyclones.

I've heard that the wet is the best time for diving and snorkeling, though.
A reef boat instructor in Cairns told me that that's when the serious
divers head up there.

That's probably true for the outer reef since the sea is usually calmer
in the wet. The water closer to the land tends to get a bit murky from
all the run-off. At least, that's been my experience.

I doubt it. Nobel would probably have seen the risks of global warming
together with the rest of us. There is hardly anyone who denies the
human influence on global warming these days, except a few people who
feel fighting it might cost them money, so they rather deny it.

that we really don't know for sure if human industial activity is the

You're trying to oversimplify it. The glaciers *didn't* cover the
entire planet. The geological record appears to show that ice ages start
when the continents are in positions which block or reduce the flow of
warm water from the equator to the poles and thus allow ice sheets to
form. The ice sheets increase the Earth's reflectivity and thus reduce
the absorption of solar radiation. With less radiation absorbed the
atmosphere cools; the cooling allows the ice sheets to grow, which
further reduces reflectivity in a positive feedback loop. The ice age
continues until the reduction in weathering causes an increase in the
greenhouse effect.

There seems to be an equally "overwhelming" consensus
that we really don't know for sure if human industial activity is
the cause of the warming.
There was, yesterday -- but not as overhelming as in your dreams. No
corrupted gang of looters (the people you voted for) is able to
confuse the issue anymore today.
Who are you talking about? Who is this "gang of looters" you speak of
and what have they "looted"?
It is surprising, but also telling, that you don't even know what he
means.

Dominik, I'll ask you then: What caused the global warming that melted
the ice of the previous ice age?
Look it up. Or did you think I'd paste a handful of papers in here for
you?

Btw, the ice ages are put into relation with global cooling, not
warming. This time, however, the global warming can indeed cause a
little ice age in some areas, but totally unrelated with the versions
that already occurred.

Whatever natural causes you come up with for the current global warming,
it is today a totally undeniable fact that the SUDDEN and far more
dramatic rise in CO2 and CH4 since the industrial revolution correlates
DIRECTLY with the abnormal rise in temperature.

You can deny that, but that doesn't make it go away.

The kind of climatology that deserves the name voodoo is the kind that
is in the hands of or paid for by big business. I can understand that
they want to disinform the people, since that is in their interest. I
don't undersatand that there are people who actually buy what they say,
though. Since I don't think you are dumb, it can only be blind
allegiance to your "group". I still don't understand that, but I know
it exists. We see the same blindness WRT other issues, e.g. like how
well things are going in Iraq, etc.

But hey, even your "group" is slowly moving away from their stance, and
is conceding that we are to blame for global warming.

Since most individuals were bogged down with the responsibility of
their own personal survival, it is likely that the liberal/leftist
mindset was unable to fully develop as we know it today. But if it had,
this would undoubtedly have been the reason for the planetary warming
responsible for the receding glaciers :-)

My favorite is still the one where they travel inside Fry's body
to get rid of those worms.
That's my favourite too. Reminds me of Charly (Flowers for Algernon).

Hilarious spoof.
Hilarious? spoof? I thought this was a serious show examining what the
future will likely be.

Can't wait either, but it's much more surprising for Futurama.

Methinks you wath too much Fox News. <g>
You're wrong ... I caught it on the CNN scroll which simply
stated that he had been nominated ... nothing more. My
reaction was not do to his nomination but rather the prize
for which he was nominated. He hasn't done anything in terms
of stopping wars or preventing them or anything else that can
be remotely considered keeping the peace.

Why do you assume that I do - just because I ask how he gets
nominated for something that he hasn't done?

If Nobel were alive today ... he'd explode!
they've been totally disgraced. i think we should take them over and
rename them the Reagan Prizes, and let the american enterprise institute
choose the winners.

You would have to take over the Norwegian Parliament then. They are
the ones that appoint the commitee that decides on the prize. The
other Nobel prizes are handled by the Swedes.

Shouldn't they just be given to those whose work increases the
US GDP the most? That's the ultimate indicator of benefit to mankind.

Yes folks, it's true ... Al Gore has been nominated for
the Nobel Peace Prize ... not for his actions to combat
any suffering in [insert any place in the world] but
rather for his efforts to combat global warming!
Don't worry, conservatives are fighting back!!!

"Landmark Legal Foundation Nominates Rush Limbaugh for 2007 Nobel Peace Prize"
http://www.prnewswire.com/cgi-bin/stories.pl?ACCT=104&STORY=/www/story/02-01-200

or (shortlink): http://tinyurl.com/2e852h

<q>
(Limbaugh) was nominated for the prestigious award for his "nearly two decades
of tireless efforts to promote liberty, equality and opportunity for all
humankind, regardless of race, creed, economic stratum or national origin.
These are the only real cornerstones of just and lasting peace throughout
the world," said Landmark President Mark R. Levin.
"Rush Limbaugh is the foremost advocate for freedom and democracy in
the world today," explained Levin. "Everyday he gives voice to the values
of democratic governance, individual opportunity and the just, equal
application of the rule of law -- and it is fitting that the Nobel
Committee recognize the power of these ideals to build a truly peaceful
world for future generations."
