Al Gore wins Nobel Peace Prize

I'm a big fan of people who make difference in their own way. Al Gore is definitely one of the people in my list.

Minutes ago, board of judges of the respected Nobel Peace Price awards Al Gore and the UN Intergovernmental agency on global warming. The said award was given toAl Gore -- "An Inconvenient Truth" star and New York Time's Bestseller author of the book of the same title -- for putting man-made global warming in the political agenda and creating waves for the immediate address of this concern.

You look at that river gently flowing by. You notice the leaves rustling with the wind. You hear the birds; you hear the tree frogs. In the distance you hear a cow. You feel the grass. The mud gives a little bit on the river bank. It’s quiet; it’s peaceful. And all of a sudden, it’s a gear shift inside you. And it’s like taking a deep breath and going, 'Oh yeah, I forgot about this'.
- Al Gore's opening monologue in "The Inconvenient Truth."

The Nobel Peace Prize (Swedish and Norwegian: Nobels fredspris) is the name of one of five Nobel Prizes bequeathed by the Swedish industrialist and inventor Alfred Nobel. According to Nobel's will, the Peace Prize should be awarded "to the person who shall have done the most or the best work for fraternity between the nations, for the abolition or reduction of standing armies and for the holding and promotion of peace congresses".

The Peace Prize is awarded annually in Oslo, the capital of Norway. The actual prize always is presented on the 10th of December, the anniversary of the death of Nobel.
