    Nobel peace prize for Al Gore



    Gore nominated for Nobel Peace Prize


    Former US Vice President Al Gore has been nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize for his climate campaign.


    Gore had been nominated for his wide-ranging efforts to draw the world's attention to the dangers of global warming, a Norwegian politician said today.


    “A prerequisite for winning the Nobel Peace Prize is making a difference, and Al Gore has made a difference,” said Boerge Brende, a former minister of environment in Norway.


    Brende said he joined with a political opponent, Heidi Soerensen of the Socialist Left Party, to nominate Gore as well as Canadian Inuit activist Sheila Watt-Cloutier for the prize ahead of today’s nomination deadline.


    National politicians, such as Brende and Soerensen, are among the thousands of people and groups to nominate Nobel candidates.


    Others with nomination rights include members of national governments, past laureates, members of the awards committee and their staff, and many university professors.


    The February 1 nomination deadline is strictly enforced, though the five-member Norwegian awards committee accepts proposals post-marked by that date.
