My personal musings about anything that gets on my radar screen--heavily dominated by politics.


Re: Al Gore 

I was going to avoid saying anything about this at all.

But then the irony stuck me: Al Gore wins the Nobel Peace Prize for his work on Global Warming; the shortest route between here and a CO2 friendly world is the end of a lot of the development around the world; the result of ending US and others' economic work in the world would be to create more and more poverty around the world; and extreme poverty is often, if not always, the cause of a great deal of conflict around the world.

So, congratulations, Nobel Committee. You've just rewarded a man whose life work is devoted to a cause that could actually cause the EXACT opposite of what your awarded is supposed to be about.
