Al Gore Wins The Nobel Peace Prize

Al Gore has been awarded top honor with the Nobel Peace Prize, for informing the world of the dangers posed by climate change.

Everyone will always have their opinions, especially regarding Al Gore, so it comes as no surprise that many are debating his worthiness of this award. One reader from Germany, wrote to DW-WORLD.DE and makes a very good point. “While Gore may be hated or celebrated like a rock star, as is Bush, he did more to raise the American awareness of global warming and the climate crisis than anyone else has done before. The fact that one man was able to finally awaken the petulant child USA to the fact that it is one of the leading causes of global warming most certainly does deserve a Nobel Prize. To criticize the film ‘An Inconvenient Truth’ because Gore had a starring role — when without Gore there would have been no film and no subsequent awareness among the otherwise blithe, ill-informed and uncaring Americans is a cheap pot-shot. If Gore’s well-deserved Nobel Prize comes as a slap in the face to the worst president in US history then it is deservedly and justifiably so. ” — Franz Peter Weeren, Germany
