Global Climate Change: Can Gore-UN Panel Nobel Prize Tip New Green Economy?
Arguably, no one has done more over the past few years to elevate the issue of global climate change than Al Gore. Except perhaps the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change.
Now Mr. Gore and the UN panel are sharing the Nobel Peace Prize. Does this mean climate change, the issue, has reached the big time?
A larger question on my mind is: Will this recognition help us get our act together to do something about it?
Let's hope that someday the winner of the Nobel in Economics is the person who figures out how to address climate change action by transforming the global economy into something sustainable, profitable, and green.
A new green economy.
We need to make this moment the tipping point to turn green into gold.
