Al Gore Wins The Nobel Prize

I'm happy to report that Al Gore has won the Nobel Peace Prize for his work in raising awareness about climate change.

Gore, who has already won an Academy Award for his documentary 'An Inconvenient Truth,' shares the prize and the $1.5 million dollar prize with the United Nations' Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change.

Novel chairman Ole Danbolt Mjoes said the committee had chosen the winners "for their efforts to build up and disseminate greater knowledge about man-made climate change and to lay the foundations for the measures that are needed to counteract such change".

Congrats to Mr. Gore, winning a Nobel Peace Prize is certainly something to be proud of!
