Nobel Process is NOT politicial in the least.

There recently was the death of a 98-year-old lady named Irena Sendler.

During WWII, Irena got permission to work in the Warsaw Ghetto, as a Plumbing/Sewer specialist.

She had an ulterior motive...

She KNEW what the Nazi's plans were for the Jews, (being German).

Irena smuggled infants out in the bottom of her tool box she carried and she also carried in the back of her truck a burlap sack, (for larger kids).

She also had a dog in the back that she trained to bark when the Nazi soldiers let her in and out of the ghetto.

The soldiers, of course, wanted nothing to do with the dog and the barking covered the kids/infants noises.

During her time and course of doing this, she managed to smuggle out and save 2500 kids/infants.

She was caught and the Nazi's broke both her legs and arms and beat her severely.

Irena kept a record of the names of all the kids she smuggled out and kept the list in a glass jar, buried under a tree in her back yard.

After the war, she tried to locate any parents that may have survived it and reunited the family.

Most, of course, had been gassed.

Those kids she helped were placed into foster family homes or adopted.

Last year Irena was nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize....

She LOST.

Al Gore won for doing a slide show on Global Warming.

It's not that it's political, it's just that it's now an institution that panders to celebrity and places "style" if you will over substance; therefore consigning itself to irrelevancy (just like Time did with it's "Man of the Year" over the past decade).

It is a PRIZE....

Do just a tiny bit of research on it, There are FIVE Nobel Prizes and one in his honour.

His will stipulated who was to decide the prize, and guess what?? It is not American....

Who selects the Nobel Laureates? In his last will and testament, Alfred Nobel specifically designated the institutions responsible for the prizes he wished to be established: The Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences for the Nobel Prize in Physics and Chemistry, Karolinska Institute for the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine, the Swedish Academy for the Nobel Prize in Literature, and a Committee of five persons to be elected by the Norwegian Parliament (Storting) for the Nobel Peace Prize. In 1968, the Sveriges Riksbank established the Sveriges Riksbank Prize in Economics in Memory of Alfred Nobel. The Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences was given the task to select the Economics Prize Laureates starting in 1969.

Each year the respective Nobel Committees send individual invitations to thousands of members of academies, university professors, scientists from numerous countries, previous Nobel Laureates, members of parliamentary assemblies and others, asking them to submit candidates for the Nobel Prizes for the coming year. These nominators are chosen in such a way that as many countries and universities as possible are represented over time.

Al Gore won ALONG WITH the IPCC.

You are so right. I guess anti semitism and political opportunists come in all shapes and sizes.

No, it means the selection committee decided that they would give it to Al Gore and the IPCC rather than her - given she has had many years to be nominated, why does the fact that Al Gore got it this time warrant mention???

What about all the other years she could have been nominated??

You really believe the Norwegian Parliament is anti-Semitic??? Pull your head out of your arse for just one minute.

Nominate her again!!

You don't have to be dead, or gain some extra status within the committee that selects the winners, by being dead. This post has nothing to do with the Nobel Prize, it has to do with a petty hatred of Al Gore.

It goes to show the agenda that is pushed by liberal minded people. Why not give it to the woman? Al Gore has 50 years to be proven correct! At this point in time we are seeing a cooling trend in the world and it is showing that the committee is a bunch of feeble minded idiots. Next year we will see a warming trend and they will be geniuses.

The fact that Al Gore got the award merits comment because the people who espouse the fact that humans are creating global warming can not even get the science correct. So when someone receives a major international prize and is held up to greats like Martin Luther King, Jr., Nelson Mandela, The International Red Cross, Henry Kissinger I would expect some certainty in their work.

Not to mention I am not the only person in the world who is left to scratch their head and wonder how this actually is related to world peace when we look at the Alumni who have been awarded this tremendous honor.

Define how you define the term "trend." And give up your rant against the Nobel Prize. This is merely a rant against Gore. Gore is a great man. Someday you will learn to appreciate what he has done. But, like a child being told to do his homework or some other chore, you dredge up some argument like "who needs to know anything about trigonometry?" as your justification to avoid the homework and go back to stroking your dick.

Trend n. Inclination in a particular direction; tendency; general direction.

This is a point about how the liberal mindset is an infection that precludes commons sense and logic in a rational decision making process.

Gore IS a great man. He invented the internet. He also goes around espousing science that has been proven wrong. For your edification it has been found that CO2 rises AFTER temperatures rise. NOT the other way around. CO2 is not the cause it is the by-product.

But you will not hear the truth because there is too much money and power tied up into the whole "Global Watming Religion" now.
