Gore: A tireless voice from the wilderness, for the wilderness

It’s official – a rumor that Al Gore would be awarded the Nobel Peace Prize has become truth today!

Al Gore was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize today, along with the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), for their work to alert the world about global warming.

Al Gore’s work has helped educate the world about this enormous challenge, and his commitment to environmental issues runs very deep. His book, Earth in the Balance: Ecology and the Human Spirit, published in 1992, is certainly worth a read for a primer on global warming.

NWF is thrilled that Al Gore’s tireless efforts to tackle global warming and devotion to environmental issues are being recognized by the Nobel committee.
