Al Gore Wins the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize
Former Vice President Al Gore and the U.N.'s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change won the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize Friday for their efforts to spread awareness of man-made climate change and lay the foundations for counteracting it.
''His strong commitment, reflected in political activity, lectures, films and books, has strengthened the struggle against climate change,'' the citation said. ''He is probably the single individual who has done most to create greater worldwide understanding of the measures that need to be adopted.''
