Hello?

In Oslo, Norway, Al Gore received his Nobel Peace Prize and urged the United States and China to make bold moves on Global Warming, or "stand accountable before history for their failure to act."

He said humanity risks sliding down a path of "mutually assured destruction."

"We, the human species, are confronting a planetary emergency - a threat to the survival of our civilization that is gathering ominous and destructive potential even as we gather here," a tuxedoed Gore said at the gala.

Meanwhile, a mid-western ice-storm blacked out more than 600,000 homes and busineses, with at least 18 deaths reported in Oklahoma and Missouri blamed on the weather.

"This is a big one. We've got a massive situation here and it's probably going to be a week to 10 days before we get power on to everybody," said Ed Bettinger, a spokesman for Public Service Company. "It looks like a war zone."
