Al Gore Wins Nobel Peace Prize for Climate Change Advocacy

Written By David D'Angelo on Saturday, October 13, 2007 | 10/13/2007

Al Gore and Climate Change scientists have finally been recognized by one of the most prestigious award giving body, the Nobel Prize. Al Gore's "An Inconvenient Truth" which puts into common language the many data pointing to an imminent danger in our planet had been a significant contribution to bringing to the regular population the danger that our Earth is facing.

From melting ice caps, drowning Polar Bears, rising currents, dying species, drought and extreme weather conditions, this was all shown as a forthcoming consequence if we do not do something about our planet.

After seemingly loosing the presidential elections to George Bush in a controversial manner, Gore embarked on a journey to personally contribute and finally take into his hands the warnings that he had been calling since he was still a United States Congressman.

Gore shared the prize with the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, a United Nations network of scientists. This scientific panel has explained the dry details of global warming in thousands of pages of footnoted reports every six years or so since 1990.

"This is a chance to elevate global consciousness about the challenges that we face now," Gore said at the offices of the Alliance For Climate Protection, a nonprofit he founded. "The alarm bells are going off in the scientific community."

"For my part, I will be doing everything I can to try to understand how to best use the honor and the recognition from this award as a way of speeding up the change in awareness and the change in urgency," Gore said in brief remarks. "It is a planetary emergency and we have to act quickly."

We are all observing climate change. way back 10 years ago we can play even at noon time without bothering how the heat of the sun feels. We can also walk even without an umbrella but now on a very sunny day it feels like hell. Hundreds have already died of heart stroke, acres of forest destroyed by forest fires and species become extinct just because of changer in the Earth's pattern.

If we do not do anything we will be seeing a harder living times on Earth.
