India tribe to honour Al Gore

A tribe in northeast India plan to reward former US vice president Al Gore for raising awareness about climate change that they say threatens their land, Reuters reported on Wednesday.
"We are hoping that the association with Gore would bring global attention to the predicament facing the people of this remote corner
of earth," Reuters quoted Robert Kharshiing, a member of parliament, as saying.
Meghalaya home to some of the wettest places in the world, but decreasing rainfall due to global warming is affecting the livelihoods
of villagers who cultivate paddy and maize, say environmentalists.
