Al Gore, U.N. panel win Nobel Peace Prize

This is the same group who gave Arafat a Nobel Peace Prize-treat this for what it is-a politically correct statement. Even though nearly a dozen points of contention have been judged incorrect in his movie, the Nobel Peace Committee ignored these facts. Former Vice President Al Gore and the U.N.'s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change won the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize Friday for their efforts to spread awareness of man-made climate change and lay the foundations for counteracting it.

The committee also cited the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change for two decades of scientific reports that have "created an ever-broader informed consensus about the connection between human activities and global warming."

The IPCC groups 2,500 researchers from more than 130 nations and issued reports this year blaming human activities for climate changes ranging from more heat waves to floods. It was set up in 1988 by the United Nations to help guide governments.

Comment: Yes, this same committee ignored all of the counter arguments made by many research scientists and economic experts. It appears that facts do not matter-what gets attention and rewarded is the good intentions of someone. I am no longer amazed by the standards currently being displayed by organizations around the world when it comes to truthful representation of concepts.
