A live webcast that will last one hour, the Project was announced by Gore in July and calls for a sobering discussion about the reality of climate change and the effects it is having in communities and ecosystems spanning the globe.
Gore will be on the Colbert Report tonight to promote this event ahead of tomorrow’s webcast.
In the video launch of the project, Gore stated, “Fossil Fuel companies 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.”
The website’s “About Us” section reads, “The Climate Reality Project is bringing the facts about the climate crisis into the mainstream and engaging the public in conversation about how to solve it. We help citizens around the world discover the truth and take meaningful steps to bring about change.”
According to the website, the event will occur in 24 different time zones (of the 40 that exist globally), with 24 different live presenters of the event around the world. It will also take place in 13 different languages.
DeSmogBlog has been given access to live stream the event, which can be watched at 7:00 PM your time below:
