Al Gore and the United Nations panel on Climate Change have just been awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for their efforts in disseminating the knowledge of global warming. Article on what it means in the New York Times here. Al Gore's book and film "An Inconvenient Truth" helped people become aware of the issues and the challenges that face us. He created the critical mass for a tipping point in public opinion, which will be leading to efforts to reduce carbon emissions and help our planet before it is too late. Congratulations and Bravo!
