Al Gore Wins The 2007 Nobel Peace Prize and The Missing Laureate

Posted on October 12, 2007. Filed under: Climate, Economics, Links, Politics, Rants, Raves, Uncategorized |

I was curious about the Nobel Peace Prize Committee and the economy, political situation and political parties in Norway.

It seems that the Red-Green Coalition, also known as the Socialist Coalition, has a slight majority in the Storting, the Norwegian Parliament, that appoints the five member Nobel Peace Prize Committee.

The current members of the Nobel Peace Prize Committee and their party affiliation:

2006-2008 Mjøs, Ole Danbolt (Chairman) b. 1939 Christian People’s Party
  Furre, Berger Ragnar (Dep. Chairman) b. 1937 Socialist Left Party
  Five, Kaci Kullman b. 1951 Conservative
  Rønbeck, Sissel b. 1950 Labour
  Ytterhorn, Inger-Marie b. 1941 Progress Party

The Norwegian Nobel Committee Since 1901

No wonder Al Gore won– the “watermellons” had a lock and a former Conservative Minister actually nominated Al Gore for the Nobel Peace Prize.

The one person I believe should have received the Nobel Peace Prize and never did was Mohandas Gandhi. He was nominated five times.

Mahatma Gandhi, the Missing Laureate

Gandhi & the Nobel Peace Prize

“It is unwise to be too sure of one’s own wisdom.
It is healthy to be reminded that the strongest might weaken and the wisest might err.”
~ Mahatma Gandhi
