Congratulations Al Gore on Winning the Noble Prize

excerpt from:

swissinfo - The truth earns Gore and UN panel peace prize.

Former US vice president Al Gore and the Geneva-based United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) have won the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize.

Swiss climate researchers have hailed the decision, saying it is also a recognition of their work and that it will boost efforts to combat global warming.

Gore and the IPCC were honoured on Friday for their efforts to build up and disseminate knowledge about man-made climate change and to lay the foundations for fighting it.

The former vice president, who won an Academy Award earlier this year for his film "An Inconvenient Truth", had been widely tipped to win the prestigious prize but he and the agency will share it.

"His strong commitment, reflected in political activity, lectures, films and books, has strengthened the struggle against climate change," the citation said.
