Give Peace (and Al Gore) a Chance

Running Gags 101807

Former vice president Al Gore, who made headlines last year for his Oscar-winning documentary “An Inconvenient Truth,” has won the Nobel Peace Prize. My comic-strip characters, liberal Susannah and conservative Bob (plus a neutral cat), assess the Nobel Peace Prize committee’s choice in the latest episode of “Running Gags,” which I drew for the America Online Elections Blog from Oct. 2006 to Sept. 2007.

    Hi Rich,

    Nice blog. Forget Global warming, the latest trend is to watch global diming. It will accelerate global warming very quickly. Of course I prefer Robert Heinline myself.

    Martin, please jump in with the real inconvenient truth, illegal immigration, that ain’t no science fiction.

    Keep up the great work Rich,

    Rob Rubin

    Thanks for the link, Richard. This one really crosses science with art and humor.

    I am really confused by the focus on the Prize. Suppose that Al Gore is right. Do we have the capacity to stem the tide, so to speak? Even if we all believed that he is right, is there anything that we could do to slow China’s monstrously-high carbon-emitting industrial expansion? I doubt it. And where does that leave us? Do we have any meaningful options? If not, then it doesn’t really matter whether he is right or wrong … the outcome, for better or for worse, is already determined.
