Former Vice President of the United States, Albert Gore, was a famous environmental activist. He later mentioned that the man who led his path to environmental activist was professor Roger Loebel, an authority on climate measurements that he met during his time in college. He has been a vice president and had a great impact on environmental legislation in the United States of America and in 2007, with the IPCC, he was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for his contribution to climate change. Gyeonggi-do and Gyeonggi-do Green Campus Council is working on projects to make the second and third Albert Gore. In the era of Earth preservation, we would like to ask for universities participation for future green leaders.
