Accuweather Global Warming Blog: Gore and the IPCC Win the Nobel Peace Prize

Maurizio Morabito:

Regardless of what you think of AGW, this is the first time in history that a Nobel prize has been given BEFORE the fact.

Usually science prizes are given to relatively older people as a lifetime achievement award. And usually, the Peace prize is the recognition of tangible results in the very recent past.

AGW has not happened yet, and there is no evidence yet that Al Gore or the IPCC have done something that will effectively stop/prevent it. There is no tangible result, not even a Kyoto-II agreement to speak of.


The other issue I would like to see discussed is how come a “scientific” group like the IPCC gets a political prize. Will the award settle the discussion of what the IPCC actually is, namely a campaigning lot and not the reliable repository of scientific information we had been told?
