"3. Kill A Lot Of People, Then Stop"

Jesse Walker of Reason has a list of helpful hints for those hoping to win their own Nobel Peace Prize–“Al Gore did it–you can too!”

Update: Kathy Shaidle brings it all back home:

Another Alfred — Nobel — endowed his famous prize as a “Winchester House” style conscience sop. He’d invented dynamite, to blast away rock during mining. Naturally, dynamite’s until-then-unmatched ability to blast away human beings was discovered shortly thereafter, to Nobel’s eternal shame.

Luckily, he didn’t live to see the prize handed out to Arafat…

If Al Gore is a decent man, thirty years from now, having finally admitted he was wrong about global warming, he will endow a new prize, to be presented annually to a man or woman who tried to undo the incalculable damage done by An Inconvenient Truth.

I hereby nominate Bjorn Lomborg as its first recipient…

Meanwhile, I can think of no better way to commemorate this special occasion than by directing you to two other sites:

* re-read Hugh Hewitt’s classic litany of Gore’s lies, “Gorelero”, which only goes up to the year 2000.

To paraphrase Arthur C. Clarke, read the whole thing, follow the links, repeat the dosage.
