Call Him Al

Al Gore along with the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change(IPCC) has been awarded the Nobel Prize! Oh, hell yeah! And ya damned right!

As you can see, I am quite pleased with the decision of The Norwegian Nobel Committee. This is a win not just for Al Gore and the IPCC but for our planet. This will hopefully draw even more attention to global climate change, of which, the US is practically the last place on Earth to accept that we, humans, have been affecting the world's weather.

From the BBC:
"Gore and UN panel win Nobel prize" —

The committee cited "their efforts to build up and disseminate knowledge about man-made climate change"...

IPCC chairman Rajendra Pachauri said he was "overwhelmed" by the award.

He told a cheering crowd of colleagues and journalists outside his office in Delhi that he hoped the award would bring a "greater awareness and a sense of urgency" to the fight against global warming.

On a personal note, this award is also a wonderful poke in the eye to the Bush Administration who have been a disaster for this country and the world. If I were to list all the things that they have done to bring on chaos, I would be here all day. I don't know what the world would have been like if Al Gore had taken his rightful place as President, but I have to believe that the condition of the worlds climate would be so much better for ourselves and our children.

Now enough of that. Let's dance!
