Nobel Prizes given to discredited UN global warming spin machine and former U.S. Vice President, Al Gore have triggered an investigation by a Swedish government department. The 'eco-warriors' are accused of promoting climate alarm with lies and junk science.
The investigation is being conducted by the Stockholm County Administrative Board, which supervises foundations in Sweden's capital. If investigators affirm that the prize founder Alfred Nobel's will is not being honored, it has the authority to suspend award decisions.
Among the most dubious awards cited for igniting such serious scrutiny was the Nobel Committee's 2007 Peace Prize to Al Gore for his now discredited film, 'An Inconvenient Truth.' After a much-publicized British high court hearing a leading London judge ruled that the film contained nine lies and 35 misleading statements.
Judge Michael Burton told the court that the film's errors had arisen "in the context of alarmism and exaggeration" in order to support Mr Gore's thesis on global warming. Judge Burton said the film was a propaganda piece that should not be shown in England's schools without a 'health warning' of it's inherent bias. Gore went on record to decry the judgement refusing to correct or apologize for his misleading 'mistakes.'
