Attention Chief Cathy Lanier

I don’t want to see anything like this at Freedom Plaza, October 6. That might be acceptable in NY; but I hope we won’t have anything like that here in DC.

The whole world will be watching. Please do not embarrass us.

Three cheers for Turkey!!!

Ambassador Tan, from the bottom of my heart, many thanks to your countrymen for sending relief to Gaza. This is indeed waging peace as Jimmy Carter would put it. I am so glad that someone is doing the right thing.

Al Gore’s statement upon winning Nobel

I am deeply honored October 12, 2007 : 8:32 AM

I am deeply honored to receive the Nobel Peace Prize. This award is even more meaningful because I have the honor of sharing it with the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change — the world’s pre-eminent scientific body devoted to improving our understanding of the climate crisis — a group whose members have worked tirelessly and selflessly for many years. We face a true planetary emergency. The climate crisis is not a political issue, it is a moral and spiritual challenge to all of humanity. It is also our greatest opportunity to lift global consciousness to a higher level.

My wife, Tipper, and I will donate 100 percent of the proceeds of the award to the Alliance for Climate Protection, a bipartisan non-profit organization that is devoted to changing public opinion in the U.S. and around the world about the urgency of solving the climate crisis.

Former US Vice President Gore, UN Panel, Win Nobel Peace Prize

Former U.S. Vice President Al Gore and a U.N. panel on climate change have been awarded the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize for their efforts to educate the public on the threat of global warming. Kevin Billinghurst reports from Stockholm.

In its citation Friday, the Norwegian Nobel Committee calls Al Gore “one of the world’s leading environmentalist politicians,” and says the IPCC has created an “ever-broader informed consensus about the connection between human activities and global warming.”
