Al Gore Wins Top Spanish Award for Protecting the Environment

Us Europeans can start to seem damn un-American at times. That merry fool George Bush is a good deal of the reason for that. There are other reasons, as sketched out in Al Gore's new book 'Assault on Reason'.

Which brings me nicely back to one American who many Europeans really do admire. Al Gore, if you take a look at google trends, is internationally renowned for taking climate change to the American people (join the world atlast friends?).

I was very glad to hear, therefore, that Al has just been awareded Spains to prize for defence of the environment.

MADRID, Spain -- Former Vice President Al Gore won Spain's most prestigious prize Wednesday for his "decisive contribution to progress in solving the grave problems of climate change which threaten our planet."

Gore won the Prince of Asturias award for international cooperation, considered by some to be a warm-up for the Nobel Prizes, for which Gore is nominated this year in the peace category.

The jury meeting in the northern city of Oviedo called Gore "a public man who, with his leadership, has contributed to making societies and governments around the world aware of this noble and transcendental cause."

The prize is named for Spain's Crown Prince Felipe and is one of eight given out annually in categories ranging from arts to sports.
