Nobel Chairman In Audience As Gore Gives Climate Change Talk

Oslo, Norway (AP) -- Nobel Peace Prize Nominee Al Gore had a chance to impress the head of the secretive awards committee with his presentation on climate change.

The former vice president presented a slide show on global warming, also covered by his Oscar-winning film "An Inconvenient Truth."

In the audience Thursday at the Congress Center in Oslo, Norway, was the Chairman of the Nobel Peace Prize Committee.

The Peace Prize Committee gives no hints and will not even say who has been nominated, keeping the list secret for 50 years. It only releases a number of candidates, 181 this year, and the winner or winners in mid-October.

Gore's candidacy only became known because two Norwegian lawmakers announced he was their choice as the nomination deadline ran out on February 1st.
