Al Gore: Nobel Laureate

Al Gore, Environmentalist, former US Vice President and one-time US Presidential contender, Multimillionaire, and who sits on both boards of Google and Apple is now a Nobel Laureate, a recognition which he shares with the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. The New York Times says that Gore gains power as well as prize, and asks, what would he do with this new found capital? There are people like FSJ asking dear Al: now you must run. Whatever he does with this success, this more than well deserved recognition is his to spend--- I hope doing more good in the world. After all, it is a better world because of his passion for the environment.
