Nobel Peace Prize


The Nobel foundation’s decisions and choices have always been debated & been looked at contrivedly. More so when the category is “Peace”. Unlike some of the more quantifiable (yet hard to compare and to pronounce the relative supremacy of one scientific invention over another) categories, the Nobel Peace prize winner is determined based on an individual’s or a group’s actions and words. There comes layers of discernment with it.

Al Gore may not have been the best choice for Peace prize this year – but no one is a perfect winner in this category in any year. So let us be honest and congratulate the team – Gore and the UN panel deserved every bit if it for getting the word out there. There is always shouts of disappointment and lobbying. But hey, I am not complaining this year. Gore deserved this as much as any other climate activist. It is just that, with the popular personal behind him, Gore had the opportunity to preach what he believed in and he actually did that. So salutes to one of the few Democrats I adore.
Well..I don’t think he is going to jump into the presidential campaign based on the perceived image boost he could get with the Nobel prize.

Talking about climate changes – what do the global warming deniers have got to say about the 80 degree weather in mid-October in the northern parts of the USA?
Alright..”Peace”!!

Besides fantasizing about being a Peter Gibbons at least for a couple of days at my work, I think I have a long way to go to realize some of the other fantasies. But like any ambitious man out there, I will get there!
