AL GORE JR. Environmentalist, author and Vice-president of the USA from 1993 to 2001.
His work as an author and environmental activist earned him (jointly with the IPCC) the Nobel Peace Prize in 2007. He discussed global warming in the 2006 documentary An Inconvenient Truth and in its companion book. The film won an Academy Award for best documentary. In 2009 he won a Grammy Award for Best Spoken Word Album for his book An Inconvenient Truth. In 2011 he merged two of his environmental groups and established the Climate Reality Project, one of the world’s most progressive environmental organizations.
