And the Nobel Peace Prize goes to ... climate change


The Norwegian Nobel Committee has recognized climate change as the world’s major challenge of the early 21st century, WWF said today.

“The award of this Nobel Peace Prize is clear recognition for the growing global movement to stop climate change,” said Hans Verolme, Director of WWF International’s Climate Change Programme.

“It is a token of the tremendous admiration we all feel towards the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change for its work, and our gratitude to Al Gore for championing this cause.”

WWF congratulates both winners and urges others around the world to be part of the solution by taking action to avert dangerous climate change.

The award comes two months before representatives from over 190 countries, together with observers from intergovernmental and non-governmental organizations, including WWF, meet in Bali, Indonesia, to launch formal negotiations for a global climate agreement beyond 2012.
