By dpa news     Oct 12, 2007 in Entertainment
Wangari Maathai, the Kenyan environmental activist who won the 2004 Nobel Peace Prize, said she was thrilled that Al Gore and the IPCC this year's top peace honours.
"So I hope that the world will wake up to the fact that we are dealing here with a real crisis, that there is a real risk to the way of life as we know it on this planet," she told the US cable television network CNN.
"And these two persons have played a very special role and a very important role in bringing this message home," she said, referring to Gore and the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change organisation.
Even US President George Bush, who rejects mandatory international action against global warming, has acknowledged the role of human- made emissions in climate change, she noted. dpa cc ds
