Bill Clinton just realeased the following statement congratulating Al Gore for winning the Nobel Peace Prize:
"Al Gore has been warning and educating us about the dangers of climate change for decades. He saw this coming before others in public life and never stopped pushing for action to save our planet, even in the face of public indifference and attacks from those determined to defend the indefensible. His tireless advocacy and his Academy Award-winning film have inspired countless people around the world to join the fight against climate change. I am thrilled by this well-deserved recognition and am grateful to the Nobel Committee for awarding the Peace Prize to him and to those doing ground-breaking work at the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change."
Earlier today, Hillary Clinton came out with her own congratulatory remarks, featured prominently on the homepage of her web site.
