2007 nobel prize winners

just read someone's blog on nobel prize winners this year....

Albert Arnold (Al) Gore Jr. and Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) won the nobel peace prize 2007, ----"for their efforts to build up and disseminate greater knowledge about man-made climate change, and to lay the foundations for the measures that are needed to counteract such change", the prize was shared between both.


There were a lot of debate and discussion on the new nobel peace winner.......some said Al-gore deserve the prize, while some disagree to that.

In my point of view, i think the work that Al-gore is doing spreading and educating ppl around the world on the damage caused by excessive CO2 on the environment is a great effort, but it seems to me that maybe the nobel peace prize doesn't seem to be the right prize to be given for such effort, shouldn't it be for promoting peace, cease war, stopping terrorism...etc??? Mayb another new nobel prize should be make for those who contibute to the sustainale developement, protecting the environment and wildlife....etc?? Hmm....
