24 Hours of Reality

Droughts, floods, heat waves, insect outbreaks, wildfires, sea level rise – we are encountering the reality of our changing climate every day. Five years after the theatrical release of An Inconvenient Truth, Nobel Laureate and former Vice President Al Gore will host an international event that brings the world together in a critical moment of global consciousness to deliver the message: The climate crisis is real, and it’s already happening.

Across the globe, cataclysmic weather events are occurring with such regularity that it’s being called a “new normal.” But there is nothing normal about it. And there’s something else that lies destroyed amid the rubble: The truth about climate change. And what’s causing it.

Spanning 24 hours, representing 24 time zones and delivered in multiple languages, 24 Hours of Reality is organized by the Climate Reality Project and features a new multimedia presentation created by Vice President Gore and delivered by an army of personally trained slide show Presenters from around the world. Beginning in Mexico City and proceeding westward around the globe, 24 Hours of Reality offers a round-theclock snapshot of the global climate crisis in real time, sharing unique perspectives on the crisis from Pakistan to Cape Verde, Mexico City to Kotzebue, Alaska, Jakarta to London. With each event scheduled at 7 p.m. local time, the entire 24 hours will also be streamed live online from start to finish, culminating in a final presentation by Vice President Gore in New York at 7 p.m.

By focusing the world’s attention on the climate crisis for an entire day, 24 Hours of Reality is intended to create a global movement and inspire international action to solve the climate crisis the other 364 days of the year. At each event, we will highlight the projects and initiatives of incountry organizations and NGOs and offer information and opportunities for people to learn more and to get involved with ongoing activities in their own communities. This global discussion will lead to action to solve the climate crisis.

WHO: Al Gore + 23 specially trained Presenters from The Climate Reality Project + YOU
WHAT: 24 Hours of Reality
WHEN: September 14-15, 2011
WHERE: Online and in villages, towns, cities, and countries across the globe
WHY: Because the climate crisis is real and it has already begun. Because what we thought was our children’s problem is in fact our own.

Special interest groups are spending huge amounts of money to convince people that climate change isn’t real while people around the world are already experiencing its effects. Where do you stand? Choose Reality.

About

What constitutes the good life? It’s a question we’ve asked ourselves since the dawn of time and something we all strive for. To us, the good life is not a destination but a journey. We want to see more positivity in the world. Thinking happy thoughts makes for happy people, and happy people are more productive, innovative and at peace with the world. We believe in the transformative power of good news.
