Al Gore will share this year's Nobel Peace Prize with the U.N.’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, for their efforts to increase awareness of the challenges of global climate change. Congratulations to them and all that, but doesn't this seem like yet another example where the Peace prize is given to someone whose record when it comes to peacefulness is somewhat mixed? Don't forget here folks, Al Gore is the guy who invented the Internet. Have you ever looked at the Internet? There's no peace there at all.
