Just wanted to send a blogospheric congratulations bouquet to the folks at the UN’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) for receiving the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize. The IPCC has been a reliable source of climate related information for quite a while. I am especially interested in the connection the Nobel folks made between natural and environmental forces and human quality of living and interaction. It appears as if news stories will be dominated by the other co-winner of the Peace Prize this year (and congratulations to him), so I thought it appropriate to focus on the “et al” part of the news coverage.
Oh, and I shared an office in graduate school with someone who now works for the IPCC, which means I am somehow on the “in” with a Nobel Laureate. Go me.
