24 Hours Starts Now - Climate Change Reality Today

24 Presenters. 24 Time Zones. 13 Languages. 1 Message. 24 Hours of Reality is a worldwide event to broadcast the reality of the climate crisis," proclaims the web site for the 24 Hours of Reality event.

The people at The Climate Reality project are fed up with the deniers and the opinion polls that show that Americans’ awareness of climate change is declining.

They are fighting back with science. They declare that the deniers “have millions of dollars to spend, but we have a powerful advantage. We have reality.

Their fight will consist of a new multimedia presentation created by Al Gore that will be delivered once per hour for 24 hours for every time zone on the globe.

Science and ‘reality’ are often long shots when it comes to fighting hard-wired beliefs and the power of the almighty buck, but I think folks know in their gut that something is changing on this planet. We see the extreme weather events increasing, the changes in growing seasons and weather patterns. We live these things. I’m hoping that champions like The Climate Reality Project and spokespeople like Al Gore will give us the tools to understand what we know is already happening. And maybe by understanding the science of it all, we will be empowered to take control of the politics and be inspired to make positive changes for sustainability.

I know I’ll be tuning in today. Looking forward to learning something new about the planet and about positive change for people dealing with climate change. You can check it out at:
