The Nobel Peace Prize for 2007 went to Al Gore and the United Nation’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change.

Gore in a statement said he was ” deeply honored … 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.”

“It is the most dangerous challenge we’ve ever faced, but it is also the greatest opportunity we have had to make changes,” he later said at a brief news conference in Palo Alto, Calif.

This really gives me hope for the future of our environment. I was beginning to see this fight for environmental causes as an exercise in futility.

Thanks Al.
