ScientificAmerican.com was up early again this morning checking the Nobel Prize Web site, waiting for the peace prize announcement. If you're wondering why, you'll recall that science and the environment have played a role in two of the last three Nobel Peace Prizes: Last year’s award to the U.N. Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change and Al Gore, and the 2005 prize to Mohamed ElBaradei and the International Atomic Energy Agency.
