What a Surprise … Al Gore Wins Share 2007 Nobel Peace Prize for Global Warming Efforts … Ego or Mother Earth?
So now that Al “An Inconvenient Truth” Gore has won an Oscar at the Academy Awards and now the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize, what’s next? Does this mean that the planet is saved? Is this really about ego or the planet?
Former Vice President Al Gore and the U.N.’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change won the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize Friday for their efforts to spread awareness of man-made climate change and lay the foundations for counteracting it.
“I am deeply honored to receive the Nobel Peace Prize,” Gore said. “We face a true planetary emergency. The climate crisis is not a political issue, it is a moral and spiritual challenge to all of humanity.”
The question on many Democrats minds is will the Nobel Peace Prize win mean Gore will run for president? The question that many should be asking is, WHY isn’t Al “its not easy being green” Gore not running for the presidency? One would truly think that if someone was so concerned with their cause and it meant the survival of all mankind that they would run for the office to be the leader of the free world and use that platform for good. So why isn’t Al running?
Would he rather just whine about the 2000 election for the rest of his life or make a difference? Is this really just about the celebrity and the fact that Al is finally getting some attention as opposed to losing to GWB is 2000? Gore will never be more popular and if he really wanted to affect change wouldn’t he want the power of the Presidency behind him?
An organization called draftgore.com is one of several trying to persuade Gore to run. The group ran a full-page ad in The New York Times on Wednesday described as “an open letter to Al Gore.”
“Many good and caring candidates are contending for the Democratic nomination,” the ad said. “But none of them has the combination of experience, vision, standing in the world, and political courage that you would bring to the job.”
