Vice President Al Gore; Nobelaureate

Congratulations, Mr. Vice President!
Vice President Al Gore Jr. was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize today, along with a United Nations panel that monitors climate change, for their work educating the world about global warming and advocating for political action to control it.

The Norwegian Nobel Committee characterized Gore as "the single individual who has done most" to convince world governments and leaders that climate change is real, is caused by human activity, and poses a grave threat.
I am not totally sold on the panic that is the Climate crisis. However, I do believe there are thing we should do to make our world a cleaner and better place to live in. Gore has been integral in getting that point across.

It has been one heck of a year for Al. An Emmy, an Oscar, and now the Nobel. Quite the trifecta!
