Adding to an already incredible year, former Vice President Al Gore and the U.N.’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change have won the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize for their efforts “to spread awareness of man-made climate change, and to lay the foundations for the measures needed to counteract it.”

This honor comes on the heels of a recent Academy Award for Gore’s movie An Inconvenient Truth, an Emmy for his online television network Current TV; and multiple collaborative projects such as the music bash, Live Earth. Truly — an unmatched year for any person in terms of influence and recognition in so many areas.

Gore joins previous American recipients of the award such as former presidents Jimmy Carter, Woodrow Wilson, Theodore Roosevelt — as well as the Rev. Martin Luther King.

We’ll have more information as it becomes available. Now the question remains: With this latest honor, should Al run for president in 2008? Vote below!
