Fiction Stranger Than Truth

It looks like Al's a Nobel shoe-in for raising awareness:

Gore, who has raised awareness with his book and Oscar-winning documentary "An Inconvenient Truth," and Canadian Inuit activist Sheila Watt-Cloutier, who has shed light on how global warming affects Arctic peoples, were nominated to share the prize by two Norwegian parliamentarians. (emphasis added)

Meanwhile, a ruling by a British court that Gore's awareness raising movie is a steaming compost of nonsense prompted this response from a CNN meteorologist:

the Oscars, they give out awards for fictional films as well

Is there a fiction category for peace prizes?
