Good for him and his cause!

But nobel prize for peace? Sounds so weird.

/edit: Alfred Nobel said: "the Peace Prize should be awarded "to the person who shall have done the most or the best work for fraternity between the nations, for the abolition or reduction of standing armies and for the holding and promotion of peace congresses". (Wikipedia)

Nobel actually "made" the award 'cause he didn't want to just be remembered for inventing such a deadly thing as dynamite. And actually, he didn't have much to do with the prize -- he just left a lump sum to a committee who did all the hard work.

But oh well, whatda gonna do.

^ My first thought exactly. I've just lost all respect for the Nobel Prize.

Yeah, but his methods are questionable at best; scare tactics and what have you...

Just copying the methods of the Bush administration really. He has made people much more aware of the environment, but some just didnt get the exaggerated part. 8) But we have seen that before of course....Iraq war... :lol:
