Gore: Nobel Laureate

October 12, 2007

An Inconvenient Truth’s creator and former Vice-President Al Gore has been awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in Norway this morning, the AP reports.

He shares the prize with the U.N.’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climatic Change for their efforts in bringing man-made climate change to the fore-front of national and international politics.

“I am deeply honored to receive the Nobel Peace Prize,” Gore said. “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.”

Below is a Reuters report about the Nobel Peace Prize nominations.
