I do not know any of you – ( I just know the Krull’s) I was getting sick of the emails to, but
that is Fricken Hilarious.
Subject: RE: Nobel **REMOVE ME FROM YOUR LIST!!!!!!!!!! STOP SENDING EMAIL 2 me!!
STOP SENDING E-MAIL TO ME!!!!!! WAA WAA!!!
With an attitude like that it won’t be long before you won’t have to worry about getting ANY e-mail. Here’s a tip for all you whining Sally Nancies out there. I found this to be an effective tool.
It’s pretty simple, my friend. First, the Nobel Peace Prize isn’t limited to work against violence/war. Criteria also includes “promoting fraternity between nations.” And since “global” warming is finally (!) seen as a problem faced by everyone on Earth, Gore’s work is eligible. Second, the Nobel Committee who voted on this knows why he’s eligible. Trust them!
Now to explain how Gore’s work promotes peace:
If half the eco-disasters/problems the majority of scientists are predicting do happen, humans will face serious turmoil. One example: Rising sea levels could seriously damage/destroy coastlines; the majority of humans and major economic centers are near coastlines; major displacement of millions of people and economic collapse could ensue. Other examples include drought (leading to water wars), depleted fisheries and other food sources, etc.
But, if people start reducing our impact now, we might avoid many eco problems that could disrupt the entire global economy and general safety – i.e. peace.
Gore’s documentary -- the culmination of 20+ years beating this drum – has forced unprecedented global public debate and political action to address this shit. And believe me, most people have NOT wanted to hear about it for years.
The bottom line is, Gore has clearly led the way in forcing the world to face these issues, finally. And the Nobel Committee realizes the value of this. Just see the film!

Of course you don’t. Republicans don’t understand anything about peace.
Explain it to me then.
What does Al Gore's movie have to do with peace?

We went to the University of the Arts in Philadelphia to The Tribute to Change. This is an annual Bread & Roses event that brings together a community unlike any other in the Philadelphia area. In recognition of their 30th anniversary Bread and Roses Community Fund honored 30 individuals at this year's 30 for 30 Tribute to Change who have broken new ground in building paths to social justice.
The event was held in Hamilton Hall at the U of Arts. Its a beautiful building with a skylight roof. The cocktail reception was excellent he 30 for 30 Tribute to Change featured a special exhibit of portraits of the nominees by award-winning photographer Harvey Finkle. Two of the 30 are described:
