A Prize for the Planet PALO ALTO, California (Achieve3000, November 5, 2007). Al Gore was vice president of the U.S. from 1993 to 2001. He has also spent years studying global warming . In October, Gore was honored for his work on climate change. He was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize. Gore shared the prize with a group of scientists. The scientists studied global warming. Then, they wrote reports about it. The reports were thousands of pages long. Most people did not read the reports. Why not? They were too hard to understand. Al Gore took the reports. He explained global warming. He made it easier for people to understand.

A Prize for the Planet (continued) Gore and the scientists say that the planet is getting warmer. How? Gases are given off by factories, cars, and other machines. The gases stay in the atmosphere where they trap sunlight. This causes the planet to become warmer. This warming could melt the ice caps at the poles. It might cause flooding, drought , and strong storms in years to come.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
