Al Gore recently won the prestigious Quill Literary Award for his acclaimed book on the startling state of the environment, “An Inconvenient Truth”.
The ex-vice president and former electoral Bush opponent has been applauded lately for his staunch efforts on promoting environmental awareness, mostly through his book, which has been also made into a film. The book, which talks about climate change, was awarded the Quill prize in the history, current events and politics category.
The Quills, which just started last year, hope to be likened to the famous Pulitzer and National Book Awards, and was created to promote literacy and gain exposure for authors. The prize was voted by the public, who cast their votes online.
