Gore and IPCC win Nobel

The Nobel Peace Prize has been jointly awarded to the IPCC and Al Gore.

Climate change campaigner Al Gore and the UN’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change have been jointly awarded the Nobel Peace Prize.

The committee cited “their efforts to build up and disseminate knowledge about man-made climate change”.

I’m thrilled!

Of course, now the talk of running comes up again.  While I wish Gore had run, I rather doubt it would be a good idea at this point in time.  I really think it’s too late.  ButI am really glad that the Nobel committee recognised this issue, and recognised both Gore and the IPCC.

  1. So, you know that John Agard is part of that committee, right?

  2. Wow. No, I had no idea. Very cool!
