thanks, al

Congratulations to Al Gore and the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) for winning the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize. They were awarded this honor "for their efforts to build up and disseminate greater knowledge about man-made climate change, and to lay the foundations for the measures that are needed to counteract such change."

According to the Silicon Valley Business Journal, Gore is giving his $750,000 winnings to a non-profit called the Alliance for Climate Protection. Gore is the founder and Chairman of the organization, whose mission is to persuade the American people — and people elsewhere in the world – of the importance and urgency of adopting and implementing effective and comprehensive solutions for the climate crisis.

Here is an example of some work by the Alliance for Climate Protection:
