Nobel prices and global warming

Al Gore just won himself a nice Nobel peace Price, shared with the whole IPCC (Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change).
So now we know: he is as good as Mother Teresa+ :>

"for their efforts to build up and disseminate greater knowledge about man-made climate change, and to lay the foundations for the measures that are needed to counteract such change"

However... One of the IPCC scientists, John R. Christy has refused its share of the Nobel prize.
Read some details here
(or here)
(Also in Italy the news has risen with interest.)

Bjørn Lomborg instead is more willing to accept that global warming is happening, but he (and the Copenhagen Consensus Institute) has different proposals for the treatment of global worming. Here some literature, and in particular this.

(+) A final note about the above mentioned Mother Theresa; read this incredible article: Mommie Dearest - The pope beatifies Mother Theresa, a fanatic, a fundamentalist, and a fraud.
The author is really angry at her... and some points he makes are really interesting (and upsetting).
