If you don’t know who Al is then you haven’t been paying attention to the climate change debate, either as a concerned citizen or a Gore-hating denier.
Watch this 1:28-minute trailer of Al introducing his Climate Reality project, which will kick off with a 24-hour live streamed event starting at 9:00 PM EST on Wednesday, September 14, 2011. My transcript follows the video.
What can change in a day? A street can become a river. A mountain can become a mudslide. A forest can become kindling.
Across the globe cataclysmic weather events are occurring with such regularity that it’s being called a “new normal”. But there’s nothing normal about it. And there’s something else that lies destroyed amid the rubble – The Truth About Climate Change.
Big Oil and Big Coal are spending Big Money to spread doubt about climate change. They’ve been able to do so quietly, but not anymore.
On September 14, the world will join hands to create 24 hours of reality. An event that will focus the world’s attention on the full truth, scope, scale and impact of the climate crisis to remove the doubt, reveal the deniers and catalyze urgency around an issue that affects every one of us.
Climate change is not your fault. The climate crisis is our problem. And real solutions can come when we address it together.
Fossil fuel interests have money, influence, control, but together we have something that they don’t – REALITY.
Join us for 24 hours of reality and show the world what can change in a day.
Al Gore returns with new climate campaign by Suzanne Goldenberg, Guardian, July 12, 2011. “Gore came back into the spotlight last month in an essay in Rolling Stone in which he also accused Obama of failing to fight hard enough for climate action. Tuesday’s announcement, which echoed some of the themes in Gore’s Rolling Stone piece, suggests the former vice-president thinks the time has come for a broader fightback.”
