In Oslo, Norway, this morning the Nobel Peace Prize was awarded to both former US Vice President Al Gore and the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, recognizing their efforts to draw public attention to the issue of global warming and stimulate debate about how to fight it.

“His strong commitment, reflected in political activity, lectures, films and books, has strengthened the struggle against climate change," the citation said in describing Gore’s work. "He is probably the single individual who has done most to create greater world-wide understanding of the measures that need to be adopted."

Gore’s documentary about climate change, “An Inconvenient Truth,” won an Academy Award earlier this year.
