Al Gore and The United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (UN IPCC) shared a Nobel Prize in 2007. Since receiving the award, a UK court has ruled that An Inconvenient Truth, the work for which Al Gore received his half of the prize, contained nine factual errors. Some have identified even more:
Recently, it was discovered that the UN IPCC 2007 Report, the work for which it received its half of the 2007 Nobel Prize, contained false information regarding the risk of glacier melt, species extinction, sea-level rise and natural disaster in an effort to frighten the public and goad politicians into taking action. By signing this petition, you are sending a clear message that you wish for Al Gore and the UN IPCC to be stripped of their 2007 award.
In signing, you are also asking that the 2007 prize be awareded to Irena Sendler who risked her life daily during WWII to ultimately rescue more than 2,500 Jewish children from the Nazis. Irena Sendler was among those up for the prize in 2007 that Gore and the IPCC won.
If you prefer a candidate other than Sendler, please note it in the comment section. For more on Sendler, visit the bottom link below. Thank you.
Worth a moment of your time, I would have thought.
Today I was going to write about my Democratic values and what they means to me. Fortunately you have been given a reprieve. Instead, I will relate a nasty incident that happened to me not more than a couple of hours ago and ask your opinion on a moral dilemma.
Lunchtime today I was minding my own business, having lunch in a fast food restaurant when a man came in. A rough sort with a skin-head and workman’s clothing. He sat down at the adjacent table and started to hurl abuse at the person sitting opposite me. When that person got up and left the restaurant, he rounded on me throwing verbal abuse (which I shall not repeat here) and then bits of his food at me and then asking me to apologise for it.

I have given some thought to how I can promote my new political reference database and give my full support to the blogging content and community here at Definitely Not MyT (DNMT or ‘Dynamite’, as I fondly refer to the acronym!).
I therefore intend to post a short notice of new political blog content here, with a link to my site and a related blog for those interested in serious political debate about issues of UK political reform.
Any non-political blogging will be done here directly.
New content has been added covering the UK Parliament Acts 1911 and 1949 and related political reference information; for those interested in them and their content and their effects on the British Constitution.
The Blog: “Questioning the Parliament Acts of 1911 and 1949“, is now also available for comment.
The content of the blog and supporting site reference material can be found at:
Political blogs will be copied over to this site after a week or so of exclusive preview and then will be available for general comment, discussion or ridecule. I will try to leave links thereafter leading to this location from elsewhere after that. This means original content will still appear here, so you won’t miss it (as if, you’d care to! LOL!)
I intend to support this as the main blogging site for the ‘Dynamite’ community, waifs and strays. My site isn’t designed to compete or act as ‘Blog Central’.
