I'm with Czech President Vaclav Klaus on this one.
Prague (dpa) - Czech President Vaclav Klaus, a rare vocal global- warming sceptic among heads of state, is "somewhat surprised" that former US vice president Al Gore received the Nobel Peace Prize, the president's spokesman Petr Hajek said in a statement.
"The relationship between his activities and world peace is unclear and indistinct," the statement said. "It rather seems that Gore's doubting of basic cornerstones of the current civilization does not contribute to peace."
Klaus said in a recent speech that environmentalists' efforts to halt global warming "fatally endanger our freedom and prosperity."
So Al Gore, former VP under President Clinton, wins a Nobel Peace Prize for his efforts in "raising awareness" about global warming. Well, we already know that there are numerous inaccuracies and exaggerations in "An Inconvenient Truth." We also know that Mr. Gore's presentation was, shall we say, selective. Perhaps the standard now for Nobel Prizes is the same as Dan Rather's was for CBS News.
