The Climate Reality Project (formerly known as the Alliance for Climate Protection) has just kicked off its "24 Hours of Reality" live streamed event. The presentation runs 24 hours, is available in 13 languages, and is the beginning of a worldwide campaign to tell the truth about the climate crisis and reject the misinformation we hear every day.
"Fossil fuel companies and their allies will go to great lengths to deny the fact that climate change is happening now," said Maggie L. Fox, President and CEO of The Climate Reality Project. "But we have one powerful response: Reality. We will dedicate our resources toward educating and engaging the public about the reality of the climate crisis and helping build the global movement for change."
One of the key themes of the event will be an attempt to show that the recent extreme weather events (floods, droughts and storms) are the first signs of climate change and the 24 hour event will conclude with a one hour presentation by former U.S. Vice President Al Gore.
"The climate crisis knows no political boundaries. Ferocious storms and deadly heat waves are occurring with alarming frequency all over the world. We are living with the reality of the climate crisis every day. The only question is, how soon can we act?" said Vice President Gore.
The non-profit Climate Reality Project is inviting people from around the world to take part in specific activities to help solve the climate crisis.
