Former Us Vice President Al Gore and the U.N.’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change won the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize for their efforts to spread awareness of man-made climate change and lay the foundations for counteracting it. The award was announced in Oslo,Norway on Friday.
This prize comes just after Al Gore won the Oscar few months back. Here is the letter I received from Algore.com today. I also encourage you all to go there and sign up and show your support for Al Gore and more importantly for the issue of climate change and the future of our Planet.
I am deeply honored to receive the Nobel Peace Prize. This award is even more meaningful because I have the honor of sharing it with the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change–the world’s pre-eminent scientific body devoted to improving our understanding of the climate crisis–a group whose members have worked tirelessly and selflessly for many years. We face a true planetary emergency. The climate crisis is not a political issue, it is a moral and spiritual challenge to all of humanity. It is also our greatest opportunity to lift global consciousness to a higher level.
My wife, Tipper, and I will donate 100 percent of the proceeds of the award to the Alliance for Climate Protection, a bipartisan non-profit organization that is devoted to changing public opinion in the U.S. and around the world about the urgency of solving the climate crisis.
Nobel Prize is a great honor for Al Gore an and he has really deserved it as he is tried tremendously in past few years to raise awareness on climate change and global warming issue throughout the world. It’s nice that the world has recognizing his efforts and soon the world governments will be pressurized enough to think and act seriously to tackle the climate crises we are facing today.
