Former Vice President and Presidential candidate Al Gore has more than made his mark on humanity and the world since the return road to the white house was so cruelly striped from him in the last elections that saw George W. Bush Jr. take to the office like a bull rider to a bull and not with as much grace or humility I might add. The Al Gore crusade to bring global awareness to the climatic changes that plague the future of this planet was recently awarded the 2007 Nobel Peace Prized for his efforts to help spread awareness about man-made global warming along with the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change.
On December, 11 the stage will be set for the Nobel Peace Prize Concert honoring this year's winners, former Vice President Al Gore and the U.N.'s climate change panel, organizers said Saturday. Australian pop star Kylie Minogue is confirmed to be among the performers in attendance. She will also be joined Alicia Keys, Annie Lennox, Juanes and Melissa Etheridge, who won an Academy Award for the song "I Need to Wake Up," featured in Gore's environmental documentary "An Inconvenient Truth." Uma Thurman and Tommy Lee Jones will be hosting the spectacular event. The concert to be held the day after the Nobel Peace Prize is presented in the Norwegian capital of Oslo will be broadcast in more than 100 countries, organizers said.
