Texas A&M Professor Named Nobel Prize Co-Recipient

Al Gore's Nobel Peace Prize win wasn't a solo effort. Gore's award also recognized the work of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change whose contributors included a Texas A&M professor.

Agriculture Economics professor Bruce McCarl learned early Friday morning that he is a co-recipient of the Nobel Prize. He was honored for co-authoring a climate manual that addresses three important issues. "One of which is the way the earth is changing now," said McCarl. "The other, the way the earth will change in the future. And then the third question is what can we do about it."

McCarl's primary contribution was the economic effect of climate change on agriculture.
