84. UN panel chairman hopes to work with Al Gore in combatting climate change
UN panel chairman hopes to work with Al Gore in combatting climate change

GENEVA - Former U.S. vice-president Al Gore told his co-winner of the Nobel Peace Prize they should work together to combat climate change, the head of the United Nations' body said Friday.



Rajendra Pachauri, chairman of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, said Gore phoned him soon after learning that they are to share the prize. "We congratulated each other," Pachauri told a news conference in Geneva, by telephone link from New Delhi.

He said Gore told him, "We must work together. We should meet as soon as possible."

He praised Gore for his courage. "He's a wonderful human being," Pachauri said. He said he and Gore really had 2,000 co-laureates - each of the scientists in the UN panel's research network.

The process expands ...


Peace.
