Yep, those sages on the Nobel Committee have given the Peace Prize to former Vice President Al Gore.
The Norwegian Nobel Committee chose Mr Gore and the United Nations’ Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change to share the prize from a field of 181 candidates.
“He is probably the single individual who has done most to create greater worldwide understanding of the measures that need to be adopted,” the committee said in its award citation……
Since leaving office in 2001 Mr Gore has lectured extensively on the threat of global warming and last year starred in his own Oscar-winning documentary film An Inconvenient Truth to warn of the dangers of climate change and urge action against it.
Perhaps he can use to prize money to help pay his energy bills.
