Should Gore be stripped of the Nobel peace prize?


"With the coldest winter ever recorded, with snow setting record levels up and down the coast, the Nobel committee should take the Nobel Prize back, " Trump recently told members of his Westchester, New York, country club according to the New York Post.



"Gore wants us to clean up our factories and plants in order to protect us from global warming, when China and other countries couldn't care less. It would make us totally noncompetitive in the manufacturing world, and China, Japan and India are laughing at America's stupidity."

  • It is a glorified popularity contest. Neither Gore nor his prize mean nothing to me. He is a hypocrite, so there is nothing "nobel" about that!

  • Having a cold winter doesn't mean that pollution doesn't exist.

    THIS.

    Gore sells carbon credits, so you can continue to pollute but CLAIM you are carbon neutral. How does that save the earth? It's the equal to driving drunk while donating money to MADD.

  • I agree with all of you. We can take better care of the Earth no doubt, but this carbon credit BS is just a money making venture. We have a ski resort that is "carbon neutral"- oh yes, come take a look- NOT, they just paid money so they could pollute. I think there is a balance some place between competitive in manufacturing and being cleaner- Al Gore is a fraud!
    But honestly, the Nobel Prize has lost its shine since it went Hollywood the last few years!
