Gore and IPCC’s Efforts on Behalf of Climate Change Win Nobel Peace Prize
Al Gore and the United Nations' Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) have won the Nobel Peace Prize [ark]! It was awarded “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.” This is absolutely fantastic and well-deserved news. Mr. Gore has been a friend of the environment for decades, has tremendously increased awareness regarding climate change [search], and had the Presidential election not been stolen, would have been the greenest President ever. He has gone from a voice in the wilderness, mocked as the ozone man, to a reasoned green international stateman. And the IPCC [search] has done a fantastic job achieving and disseminating the most current global scientific consensus on climate change.
This award is a validation of climate science and the climate change movement. The committee has boldly acknowledged that global warming poses an immense threat to global peace and security [search]. My hope is that this award enables both Mr. Gore and the IPCC to speak truthfully, proposing and achieving bold and adequate policies that will save the Planet. And perhaps this will allow them to address root, controversial themes, such as over-population and the need for personal sacrifice. I and others are waiting to be led. Today I am proud to be a climate change activist of long standing, and you should be too.
