Officially, no. But the Goldman Prizes are often referred to as the Nobel Prizes of environmental advocacy. They were established in 1990 by the California philanthropists Richard and Rhoda Goldman. Among this year’s winners are Maria Gunnoe for fighting mountaintop coal mining in Appalachia; Marc Ona Essangui, an African who campaigned against a Chinese firm’s plan to mine iron ore in the Gabon rainforest; and Olga Speranskaya, of the Moscow group Eco-Accord, which works to rid the former Soviet Union of toxic industrial and agricultural waste.
The categories in which Nobel Prizes are awarded include Physics, Chemistry, Physiology or Medicine, Literature, Peace, and Economics. However, in 2007 Al Gore and members of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change won the Nobel Peace Prize for the success both parties in educating people about climate change and fighting against it.
