Climate Laureates

Al Gore and the UN's Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change will share the Nobel Peace Prize this year, according to the L.A. Times.

"His strong commitment, reflected in political activity, lectures, films and books, has strengthened the struggle against climate change," the citation said. "He is probably the single individual who has done most to create greater worldwide understanding of the measures that need to be adopted."
Gore's decades-long crusade against climate change was captured in the 2006 Oscar-winning documentary "An Inconvenient Truth," which is seen as a major force in shifting the debate from whether the burning of fossil fuels is warming the planet to what should be done about it.

The Nobel Peace Prize is likely to increase calls for him to enter the 2008 presidential race, despite his insistence that he has no intention of running.
