Gore, U.N. climate panel win Nobel Peace Prize

Al Gore and the U.N.’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change won the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize Friday, and the former vice president used the attention to warn that global warming is “the greatest challenge we’ve ever faced.”

World leaders, President Bush among them, congratulated the winners, while skeptics of man’s contribution to warming criticized the choice of Gore.

Gore in a statement said he was ” deeply honored … 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.”
