Yesterday, the Tennessee House unanimously approved a resolution honoring Al Gore and his efforts to curb global warming:

We hereby honor and congratulate vice president Albert Arnold “Al” Gore Jr. on his receipt of the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize for his exemplary efforts to inform and educate the public and promote understanding of the threats posed by global warming and the measures needed to counteract such change.

Gore is a former U.S. congressman and senator from the state of Tennessee. House Republican Leader Jason Mumpower now wants Democrats to vote on a similar resolution praising the late President Ronald Reagan.
