Personally, I'm completely convinced that global warming is the biggest threat facing the planet.
... there is a planetary emergency in the making and our generation, and the few before it, are responsible for creating the conditions that have led us to where we are.
I do think the position is salvageable, but only if we face up to some pretty stark truths fairly quickly ... and take appropriate action.
So, I'm delighted that Al Gore has received (jointly) the Nobel Peace Prize.
... sure, his recent film had a few points that are still scientifically contested - but very, very few contest that current climate change is mainly caused by man-made emissions of greenhouse gases and that this will have serious consequences for the future.
I think today's award is just recognition for the vast, vast majority who 'do recognise' the inconvenient truth staring us all in the face. Senior national politicians, of which Gore is no longer one, need to recognise the same.
