From the page:

At its meeting in Oviedo, the Jury for the 2007 Prince of Asturias Award for International Cooperation, made up of Mara Jess lvarez Gonzlez, Enrique Barn, Jos Mara Bergareche, Emilio Cassinello, Alicia Castro Masaveu, Consuelo Crespo, Manuel Daz Ron, Jorge de Esteban, Luis Fernndez, Severino Garca Vign, Antonio Garrigues Walker, Isabel Gmez-Acebo, Laura Gonzlez, Luis Lada Daz, Ricardo Mart Flux, Jos Mara Martn Patino, Luis Javier Navarro Vigil, Marcelino Oreja Aguirre, Yago Pico de Coaa, Francisco Pinto Balsemo, Luis Ruiz de Gopegui Miguel, Luis Snchez-Merlo, Gustavo Surez Pertierra, chaired by Leopoldo Calvo Sotelo with Teodoro Lpez-Cuesta as secretary, has decided to bestow the 2007 Prince of Asturias Award for International Cooperation on Al Gore, Chairman of the Board of the Alliance for Climate Protection, for his decisive contribution towards making progress in solving the serious problems caused by climate change that are threatening our planet and which make international cooperation an absolute necessity in the search for a solution. In bestowing this Award, the Jury wishes to highlight Al Gores many great merits, for he is a public figure who, with his leadership, has contributed towards raising awareness amongst people and governments throughout the world by advocating this noble and vital cause.

By conferring this Award to such an outstanding citizen, the Jury also wishes to recognize the efforts of all of the people and organizations that are working along the same lines.
This page contains information about Mr. Gore, and a link to his response upon receiving the prize.
The awards were conferred this past week after Mr. Gore had been informed he won the prize for International Cooperation. The above is the announcement of the award from the nomination jury. Winning this prize is akin to being called the Spanish Nobel and is seen as a precursor to the Nobel Prizes awarded in October.

Congratulations, Mr. Gore. Oh, and also, Bob Dylan won an Asturias prize for the Arts... Congratulations.
