What a surprise! Of course neither have anythong to to with peace. The negotiators for the ending of the North Korean nuclear program clearly should have won.

We can't impeach bussie, only the politicians can, but we can draft Gore to run for president.

He was the rightful winner in 2000. He deserves to be president. Screw iraq and the neo-CONS, bring back DEMOCACY to the US!

Of course all that " campaigning " had nothing to do with it. I think the other nominees were Oprah and Brangelina

half truths you say?????? Perhaps, just perhaps, you have gotten hold of the wrong half. Al Gore has worked to bring the topic of environmental crises to the public's eye and perhaps get it into their thinking and doing during everyday life and habits....sorry, but my 1970's textbooks show the scientist's documentation of today's problems....we are living (thank you) the projections and bottom line is: act locally, think globally (an environmental phrase from Earth Day) we must all individually do our part to reduce, reuse, recycle and be conscientious.....that's the message....Otherwise it's costing in many ways...

Gore is an idiot. It has been proven that one volcano exploding puts more garbage in the air than all the humans who ever lived. So Al stop riding in your private jet spuing polutants and start capping all the volcanos so we can stop them from polluting the atmosphere. Also our pollution must be traveling thru space because the glaciers on Mars are retreating also. Hmmm wonder how we can save MARS

Good for him. It's about time people of the world start looking at TRUTH and rewarding those for seeking it out and sharing it.

another great accomplisment and a great reward for Mr. Gore's lifelong mission in this area.

just think of how well this country would have been doing for the past neaarly 7 years if the US supreme court had not interferred with the recount in Florida.

9/11 would not have happened

wars in Afghanistan and Iraq would not be going on

we would have a national health care plan already in action

14,000 less US troops dead

55,000 les US troops wounded

2 million Iraqis still alive

the USA would be respected and admired

our economy would be robust

foreclosures and bankruptcies would not have hit these types of levels

gas prices would be around $1 a gallon

alternative fuels would be a reality at this point in his re-election

we would have action on the environment and be cutting down on greenhouse gasses

our roads and infrastructure would be improving

each and every US citizen would respect as fine and intelligent President such as Mr. Gore.

the quality of life would have improved for all Americans

but we have 5 very disturbed judges on the bench for the US supreme court that helped ruined America and did some permanate damage to the world at large by appoint Bush over Gore, whom had truly won the 2000 election for President

Gore getting a Nobel Peace Prize is a tribute to political hypocrisy and a blinding indictment of the politics of the Nobel Prize selection committee.
http://www.snopes.com/politics/bush/house.asp

To think that Gore has anything at all to do with the following information is akin to crediting him with the origins of the internet.

Periodic and dramatic earth climate change has occurred over the past 4 to 5 billion years, with primates of any kind only being around for about 1% of that time. While it is possible we might be affecting the timing of another change, and it is not harmful to do some things differently to slightly delay that timing, it is not likely that changing our emission of “greenhouse” compounds will stifle the real problem.

Following is a very comprehensive, extensive journey through the history of homo sapiens, integrating recent mitochondrial DNA and Y chromosome research. This one cannot be fully consumed in one sitting. However, the integrated matter-of-fact accounting of geological history kind of places modern “global warming” concerns in a **far, far humbler perspective.**

A practical view on “global warming”
http://www.geocraft.com/WVFossils/GlobWarmTes...

The real problem we face is the densest population of homo sapiens known to the history of this planet. In the end, we will either reach a stable species/ecology dynamic, or the planet will burp us correctively into equilibrium (consistent with the Gaia Hypothesis – or Theory.)

Wikipedia info on this, including commentary by the United Nations (if you give that credibility).
“Almost all growth will take place in the less developed regions, where today’s 5.3 billion population of underdeveloped countries is expected to swell to 7.8 billion in 2050. By contrast, the population of the more developed regions will remain mostly unchanged, at 1.2 billion.”

Population Growth over Human History
http://www.globalchange.umich.edu/globalchang...

"Save the Earth" is a silly notion. The Earth is rather able to save itself, with or without humans. I'm a little more interested in saving the humans, a process that depends upon our own ability to balance resources and population.

I believe we have the ability to generate resources in a renewable manner, so long as demand is not excessive. But how to stabilize population growth?

no, i saw the ENTIRE thing...it's pretty apparent YOU only see what you want to see...there are holes the size of montana in his "documentary"...
al gore blatantly lied...(he's done it numerous times...inventing the internet, designing the interstate hyway system...et al) and it's not just me saying it.

Maybe it's down in the bottom of that Tequila bottle. You know Bush is just eating his heart out, regardless of what comes from the White House. You so deserve it Mr. Gore.
