Al Gore: Master of Peace? (Updated)

That thundering crash you heard sometime last night was the credibility of the Nobel Peace Prize dropping through the earth's crust.

Apparently, one contributes to world peace best with junk science, political ambition, sophomoric logical fallacy, and self-referentially incoherent hypocrisy and exaggeration. Throw in some leftist-academic intolerance of dissent and. . .VOILA!. . .you get a Nobel Prize from the Swedes.

Oh, how you have fallen!

Update: I think AL (and the rest of the world) would have been better served had he been awarded an Ig Nobel Prize.

Also, check out Junk Science for a rather humorous take on AL's science of global warming. You could also win $125,o00 if you prove global warming is the product of the human consumption of natural resources. That amount of dough could buy Father a whole lotta books!


  1. Let's all join hands and sing: "I'd like to buy the world a Coke and keep it companeeeeeee."

  2. That crash was years ago with likes of Nobel laureate and terrorist Arafat.

  3. I was going to say that with Arafat and Jimmy Carter on the list, I don't know that the Nobel Peace Prize had any credibility in the first place.

  4. Father, on behalf of violas everywhere I a deeply offended by this association with Al Gore. I implore you, as a brother in Holy Father Dominic, please amend this wicked slur!

  5. Re: RB the Viola

    There's one in every crowd...LOL!

    Fr. Philip, OP

  6. Actually, it's the Norwegians who award the Nobel Peace Prize.

    Please send Mr. Gore some lutefisk.
