Congratulations Al


I'm a huge fan of Al Gore! Have been for a long time. It's so refreshing to know there is a politician who is out there, among the people, fighting for something he believes in and is not hidden behind a desk somewhere.
In honor of his work, Al Gore has received the Nobel Peace Prize.
The following is from a super blog about the climate.

Go there to read more about our climate and our Earth.
The Conscious Earth

In recognition of "their efforts to build up and disseminate knowledge about man-made climate change", Al Gore and the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) have been announced as co-winners of the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize.

In awarding the honour, the Nobel committee singled out Al Gore as "probably the single individual who has done most to create greater worldwide understanding of the measures that need to be adopted". President Bill Clinton expressed similar feelings,

"Gore's ex-boss, former President Clinton, also said he's 'thrilled by this well-deserved recognition,' and credited Gore with 'warning and educating us about the dangers of climate change for decades. He saw this coming before others in public life.'"


Gore stated that he will donate his half of the $1.5 million dollar prize to the Alliance for Climate Protection, an organization he founded to persuade people to reduce global warming by cutting greenhouse gas pollution.

I am also a fan of Al Gore. I think he is doing his best to educate us on global warning. The world has declined dramatically in the last 20 years.

I posted an article on my blog today on Canada's Endangered Animals. We have 13 already extinct and many others that are seriously endangered.

I enjoyed your post.
