Comments on: Will Nobel Prize also take Obama to Copenhagen climate talks? http://blogs.reuters.com/environment/2009/10/09/will-nobel-prize-also-take-obama-to-copenhagen-climate-talks/ Global environmental challenges Wed, 16 Nov 2016 08:14:55 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: Sean http://blogs.reuters.com/environment/2009/10/09/will-nobel-prize-also-take-obama-to-copenhagen-climate-talks/comment-page-1/#comment-342320 Mon, 12 Oct 2009 22:45:53 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/environment/?p=14229#comment-342320 Let me just express my opinion over the “by how much” factor when considering cutting greenhouse emissions. It might not be how much we can cut ours, or look how much every other country is cutting theirs. We need to just reduce them. Not by 80% or 46% or whatever. Not every country is built the same, and not every country can go about reducing CO2 emissions in the exact same fashion with the exact same results.

I think what is important is that we set our own goals and simply follow through on them, screw the Kyoto Protocol, the Copenhagen Talks, lets just do it. I feel like that is how the United States came to be such a BOSS, we just did what we needed to do and owned.

Just a college perspective.

But what irks and infuriates me is that, of all people, Mahatma Gandhi never won the prize, though nominated numerous times!! So, I have no respect for The Nobel Prize. Its credibility suffered long time ago. The Nobel Committee seems to be jumping on the bandwagon, patronizing people just to score some points. :(

On the same page there was a news that US Air force is testing a new 13.500 kg bomb. Is that ironic or it is ironic?

I will stand behind My president and my country and the world in the hopes of achieving this goal.

Abroad and at home, other then lip service he has provided NOTHING! If “HOPE” rather then the RESULTS, is the reason for such award, then why in the other categories selecting process of others, they didn’t use just that?
One may wonder if marketing his version of MARXISM and LENINISM idealistic agenda now overseas will continue, or will his focus stay here with as and VERY JOBLESS US market?

Most people I know, liberal and conservative were shocked at this choice. What has he done to deserve this reward. Wake up people from other countries and dont believe the praise you here about Obama. He is going to ruin this country. It is already happening. Get informed.

Norway should hide her head in shame, they are the joke of the world as well is the Nobel Peace prize.

He knew the power of his own media, broadcasting his vision, goals, commitment despite what “reality” seemingly dictated. Obama was able to focus his message on what was working and successful in his own life and inspire hope and powerful intentions around the world. That’s why it was no surprise he was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize.” READ MORE.
