Hot damn! Al Gore won half a Nobel Peace Prize!

Former Vice President Al Gore and the U.N.’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change won the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize on Friday for their work to raise awareness about global warming.

This makes me proud to be an American. For awhile, and then it’s back to the horrors of the bush junta. Sigh.

Nope, can’t be sad yet! Congratulations, Al!!! Whoo-hoo!!! Could you please run for President now?

Update:

Al is deeply honored.

“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.”

What a guy. Yay! Tipper, too!

    I think Al should run for president of Earth. Why should America get to keep him all to yourselves?
