2007 Nobel Peace Prize

Because the Peace Prize this year has been awarded for efforts to disseminate and collate information on global change, I thought it appropriate for this blog. Both the Natural Sciences Collegium and Eckerd College have been proponents of environmental wellness. This year's award will be split between Al Gore Jr. and the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). The IPCC was established in 1988 by the World Meteorological Organization and the United Nations Environment Programme. The organization publishes assessments based on peer-reviewed literature. Al Gore has dedicated a portion of his career to the effects of climate change, most recently with a book and an Academy-award winning movie.
