(WOIO) - After 40-years of marriage, former Vice President Al Gore and his wife, Tipper, are calling it quits.

The powerful political couple are calling the decision to divorce "mutual."

Al Gore lost the 2000 presidential election to Republican George W. Bush. He has since campaigned worldwide to draw attention to climate change , which in 2007 led to a Nobel Peace Prize and an Oscar for the documentary "An Inconvenient Truth."

Tipper Gore is known for her advocacy on mental health issues.
