Climate Change and Conflict

Dave's wondering why Al Gore should get a peace prize for his work on publicizing climate change.

I'd imagine it's because climate change is likely to be a major cause of conflict over the next century. What with shortages of basic resources such as fresh water and arable land, and mass migration due to flooding and so on, it's going to get ugly.

Let's just hope that Gore is actually able to accomplish something to justify the prize.
