Al Gore and IPCC win Nobel Peace Prize

Al GoreThe Nobel Prize committee has given the Nobel Peace Prize to former U.S. Vice President Al Gore and the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. The IPCC has been the foremost organization studying and reporting on global warming and climate change. Gore’s sharing of the award recognizes his long-term effort at raising public awareness of global warming. It’s no surprise that the peace prize was given to climate scientists and a public advocate for reversing the impending climate crisis. As Gore states in his Oscar winning movie “An Inconvenient Truth”, resolving the threat posed by a warming climate is “not a political issue, so much as a moral issue.”
