Nobel Peace Prize

So Algore won the Nobel Peace Prize.  Here’s my question.  Nobel’s will left the peace prize

“to the person who shall have done the most or the best work for fraternity between the nations, for the abolition or reduction of standing armies and for the holding and promotion of peace congresses”.

So they gave Gore the prize because

“Al Gore has for a long time been one of the world’s leading environmentalist politicians…”

Now riddle me this:  what in the hell does raising “environmental awareness” have to do with promoting “fraternity between the nations” or any of the rest of it?  Nobel formed this prize because of his guilt over inventing dynamite which was used to create many weapons.  I don’t think turning the Nobel committee into just another leftist propaganda funding machine is what he had in mind for his legacy.

    I think it’s the transitive property:

    If
    environmentalist = hippie and
    hippie = peace and
    and Al Gore = environmentalist
    then
    Al Gore = peace
