To till it and keep it: Al Gore wins Nobel Prize

Former Vice President Al Gore won the Nobel Peace Prize for his work on global warming, capping a remarkable year where he also won an Academy Award for his global warming documentary, "An Inconvenient Truth."

In its citation announcing the prize, the Nobel Committee in Stockholm said that the former VP "has for a long time been one of the world's leading environmentalist politicians. He became aware at an early stage of the climatic challenges the world is facing. His strong commitment, reflected in political activity, lectures, films and books, has strengthened the struggle against climate change. He is probably the single individual who has done most to create greater worldwide understanding of the measures that need to be adopted."

The New York Times has the story.

The Nobel Committee has the announcement.

The Holy Bible has the instruction:

Genesis 2:1-15: "In the day that the Lord God made the earth and the heavens, when no plant of the field was yet in the earth and no herb of the field had yet sprung up—for the Lord God had not caused it to rain upon the earth, and there was no one to till the ground; but a stream would rise from the earth, and water the whole face of the ground— then the Lord God formed man from the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and the man became a living being. And the Lord God planted a garden in Eden, in the east; and there he put the man whom he had formed. Out of the ground the Lord God made to grow every tree that is pleasant to the sight and good for food, the tree of life also in the midst of the garden, and the tree of the knowledge of good and evil....The Lord God took the man and put him in the garden of Eden to till it and keep it."
