24 Hours of Reality
On November 14, from 8:00 PM EST until November 15 at 8:00 PM EST, The Climate Reality Project will host a 24-hour marathon webcast entitled “24 Hours of Reality: The Dirty Weather Project,” led by The Climate Reality Project’s founder and chairman, former Vice President and Nobel Laureate Al Gore.
The webcast will be a series of live recordings of discussions that focus on climate change as it relates to all corners of the Earth. Twenty four different segments will air one at a time, on the hour, moving westward across the world in different regions, starting and finishing in New York City.
Beyond Al Gore, panelists include representatives from government, industry, education, and the nonprofit sectors. Leaders from national governments and the UN will be on panels regarding dirty energy and its effects on the environment, as well as scientists from organizations such as Oxfam, Woods Hole, and National Resources Defense Council. Researchers from Stanford University, New York University, and other colleges will also speak on the problems that face individual regions and the world as a whole.
Leading up to the webinar, people everywhere have also been encouraged to create and upload their own user-generated videos about how climate change has affected them personally. These videos will be selected and shown during each individual panel.
We hope that you’ll tune in during your region’s panel to learn how dirty energy is affecting dirty weather and what we can do to stop it. You can also tweet your support, post to Facebook, or Pinterest to spread the word.
