Die Welt presents its list of laureates to whom they feel the award was a blunder. Here are the top 5:
1. Henry Kissinger
2. Yasser Arafat
3. Al Gore and Rajendra Pachauri
4. Wangari Maathai
5. Barack Obama
Gore and Pachauri come in third.
'Since then Gore’s climate-political engagement has diminished markedly, as well as that of then IPCC chairman Rajendra Pachauri, who was sharply criticized because he used dubious data to promote doomsday scenarios such as predictions of the destruction of the Netherlands or the desertification of the Amazon rainforest.'
