Nobel Peace Prize: IPCC and Al Gore

The Nobel Peace Prize was announced this morning, and will be split between an international panel and everybody’s favorite PowerPoint presenter:

The Norwegian Nobel Committee has decided that the Nobel Peace Prize for 2007 is to be shared, in two equal parts, between the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) and Albert Arnold (Al) Gore Jr. for their efforts to build up and disseminate greater knowledge about man-made climate change, and to lay the foundations for the measures that are needed to counteract such change.

There’s long been a tradition of inviting American Nobel laureates to the White House for a dinner honoring their achievement. What are the odds that that gets cancelled this year?
