Some better Nobel Peace nominees

The Wall Street Journal’s OpinionJournal has come up with a much better list of Peace prize nominees.  With the exception of the Burma monks (because the latest protest was so recent) I think all of them would have been eligable for nomination and winning.  All of them more deserving than Gore and a UN group.

Found via one of the political blogs I subscribe to, but when I saved the link I forgot to save the source as well.

  1. I don’t see how women driving in SA or some national plight is more important than earth and the human race.

  2. What did it accomplish though? The prize committee had an excellent opportunity to highlight the plight of a group of people working for peace but failed to do so.

    I don’t think anyone who knows about the Gore/UN peace prize win didn’t know about the global warming issue before. However, there were quite a few groups that I wasn’t aware of before on the OpinionJournal list that could have used the exposure.
