Chortle of the Day

The hammer of the gods is insanity.  Now Mr. Fu knows why many of his Viking ancestors were driven to new lands, because some of their fellow countrymen were bat guano crazy and they needed an escape.  The defective insanity genes still flow in the land the Vikings once called home: 

Former U.S. Vice President Al Gore and a United Nations panel on the environment won this year’s Nobel Peace Prize for raising awareness about the threat of climate change.

If that was not funny enough there is this howler: 

The prize is “a recognition of the contribution of the scientific world,” Pachauri told reporters today in New Delhi.

You would suspect that they had single handedly cured cancer, or invented a longer lasting light bulb rather than just written a report about scientific concensus.  And scientific concensus is the end all, beat all, NOT! To hear them talk you would think that no one disagrees with their flawed views or that anybody ever re-looked at the ideas and found flaws.

Some history on the peace prize: 

The peace prize, worth 10 million kronor ($1.56 million) was created in the will of Swedish industrialist Alfred Nobel more than a century ago. Past recipients include Archbishop Desmond Tutu, former U.S. President Jimmy Carter and the Red Cross. The prize was first handed out in 1901.

Former U.S. President Jimmy Carter?  Wow, Mr. Gore is certainly in good whack job company there!

Some other commentary on Gore’s fellow winners and the prestige he gets.  Heh….

UPDATE:  One Brit’s opinion on the subject, “the most sanctimonious lardbutt Yank on the planet.”

What do you want?  World Peace.

    Seems the Nobel Peace prize has become more in line with the Academy Awards, as it is who you know, and what ever way the political pengelam is swinging at the time. Gore would have won that award even if the entire scientific community was standing along side Britain saying “Look at all the indiscrepances we found in the Theories you call “facts”.
    The Left has bigger mouths to yell with. Another reason we need to start rumbling louder and protesting at their every turn of the screw to control us more.
