Former Vice President Al Gore will share the Nobel prize with the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change for his outstanding efforts to alert the world to dangers of changes in the environment. “His strong commitment reflective in political activities, films, and books has strengthened the struggle against climate change” was stated as main reasons for winning the prize.
Perhaps, winning this prize can persuade Gore to take one further step in dealing with climate change by placing his name into the ring for the presidential nomination. A group of his supporters in the past few days have placed on ad in The New York Times urging him to take a shot at the nomination. At this critical time in the world’s struggle to control devastating effects of climate change, the voice of Al Gore is vitally needed.
