Al Gore for President

OSLO, Norway – Formerand the won the Friday for their efforts to spread awareness of man-made climate change and lay the foundations for counteracting it.
I have lost all respect for the Nobel Peace Prize. I guess once they lowered their standards and awarded a Peace Prize to Yasser Arafat that they decided to aim higher. For you progressive liberals — I am not comparing Gore and Arafat. That is a criticism of the Nobel committee for awarding a prize to Arafat and lowering their standards.
I would like Gore to debate this issue with people who actually know what they are talking about. His hype and hysterics are not worthy of a Nobel Peace Prize.
Now the speculation. Will Al Gore (Nobel Peace Prize and Academy Award Winner) step into the Democratic Presidential Primary or is it too late? Maybe all these prizes are just consolation award for loosing in 2000 to GW?
There is actually some speculation that he might do it. There is a lot of speculation that he won’t and that it is too late to stop Clinton.
“I am deeply honored to receive the,” Gore said. “We face a true planetary emergency. The climate crisis is not a political issue, it is a moral and spiritual challenge to all of humanity.”
Al is a phoney. It is political because he made it political. He is trying to get the Government to step in and implement cap and trade policies. You don’t think it is political? BS. This is not a moral and spiritual challenge either because he will use all his political capital to get the next President (especially a Democratic one) to implement cap and trade so he and his friends can rake in the cash.
“His strong commitment, reflected in political activity, lectures, films and books, has strengthened the struggle against climate change,” the Nobel citation said. “He is probably the single individual who has done most to create greater worldwide understanding of the measures that need to be adopted.”
What measures would those be? Cap and trade measures like the Europeans are using and preparing to walk away from? They don’t work. It has been tried before and it failed. The Europeans can’t make it work. But Al Gore can? Please. Al is seeing dollar signs.
