Date:2/26/2008

nd for his personal exploration of the tragic conflict between two nations.
  • Tom Stoppard (London, Britain) for being a master playwright whose plays demonstrate farcical cleverness alongside profound humanity and faith in goodness, beauty and love.
  • Atom Egoyan (Canada) for his superb modernist filmmaking which explores Armenian history and culture.

Present In the field of "Social Responsibility with Particular Emphasis on the Environment":

  • Al Gore (former Vice President of the United States) for his multiple contributions to creating greater worldwide awareness of the disastrous effects that mans energy consumption has on the environment.

Future Sharing the prize in the field of "Geosciences":

  • Ellen Moseley-Thompson and Lonnie G. Thompson (Ohio State University, Columbus, Ohio, USA), jointly, for their separate and joint efforts in studying the geological and environmental records in ice cores.
  • Geoffrey Eglinton (University of Bristol, Bristol, United Kingdom) for his studies of organic chemical fossils, which revealed the inhabitants and climates of ancient worlds.

"The constellation of laureates is particularly meaningful at this time," said Mr. David on the announcement of the 2008 winners. "On the one hand, great creators depicting historical events in literature, theater and film; on the other eminent scientists whose research predicts environmental disaster if we do not act; and in between a man working to promote awareness of this prediction and its remedies so that human history will continue to be told for generations to come."

Acknowledging both the prize and the university, Gore said, Thank you for your countrys leadership for so many years on the environment. This prize and the Israeli people have served as a beacon of light and hope. May I also commend you for making so many awards to young people who are the future leaders of our worl
