Climate science nets a Nobel Prize

Climate change took the world stage in 2007, when Al Gore and the U.N. Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change shared the Nobel Peace Prize “for their efforts to build up and disseminate greater knowledge about man-made climate change, and to lay the foundations for the measures that are needed to counteract such change.” Among the 2,500 scientists who contributed to the international IPCC reports were 40 NCAR staff who served as coordinating lead authors, lead authors, reviewers, or contributors.
