There's been a lot of speculation lately that Al Gore, former Vice President of the United States, may recieve the Nobel Peace Prize.
My first reaction - are you serious?!?!?
Sure, he might have raised awareness for global warming through his documentary "An Inconvenient Truth." But I don't see the statistics of people actually changing their behavior after watching the movie. If anything, it just confirmed what people already knew and affirmed those who already advocated for "greener" lifestyles.
I'd rather the Nobel Peace Prize go to someone who has made a more direct impact to humanity.
Update: Sigh, he did win. What's next Nobel Peace Prize for Angelina Jolie's humanitarian work? I guess the only positive is that maybe this news will spread the news of global warming even more.
