In this interview, Steve Hayward of AEI puts Gore’s Nobel prize in perspective with this classic summation:
"Gore’s prize is another phase of the climate silly season that we’ve been in for several years now."
Hayward proceeds to dissect the motives of the left-wing enviro-Nazis with one telling paragraph:
"Gore exemplifies the urge most environmentalists have to exert ever greater political control over resources. Some environmentalists want to do this because they believe we use "too many" natural resources and want to be in charge of rationing them; others believe the rationalist fallacy that government can direct better use of resources than private individuals and the marketplace. To be sure, resource scarcity can be a source of conflict and war, but democracies and nations with market economies seldom have to go to war to resolve such conflicts."
