Nobel peace laureates: actions on climate change
Adjust font size:

The two winners of the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize Sunday called on world leaders to take "strong and concrete actions" to combat climate change.

Former U.S. Vice President Al Gore and Rajendra Pachauri, chairman of the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), told a joint press conference here that it is time to "take strong and concrete actions" to fight climate change.

Gore and the IPCC shared the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize for warning the world against severe consequences of global warming.

Gore said global warming is "a question of the survival of our civilization," expressing expectations that the ongoing international climate meeting in Indonesia's Bali would result in "a strong mandate to reduce emissions."

Both Gore and Pachauri urged children and youths to get involved in climate change issues at school and elsewhere.

Gore and Pachauri representing the IPCC will receive the Nobel peace laurel at a ceremony in Oslo Monday.

They are scheduled to make a brief stop in the Swedish capital Stockholm Wednesday before heading to Bali to join the climate talks.
