Yeah, my problem's not that she's an environmentalist

So, Wangari Maathai arrived in Oslo to pick up her Nobel Peace Prize. There is much controversy surrounding the idea of giving a prize for peace to an environmentalist. Personally, I don't have a problem with that, I can buy the argument that the deforestation of Africa will cause resource shortages that could lead to civil wars. You only have to look at Haiti to see what deforestation can do to a nation. What I have a problem with, is the fact that the woman is cleary a raving lunatic.

Now really people, is this in keeping with the proud tradition of a prize given to as good a man as Yasser Arafat?
