24 Hours of Reality
The Climate Reality Project, founded and chaired by former US Vice President Al Gore, will host a 24-hour event beginning on September 14 in what the organizers hope will mobilize the world to confront the reality of the climate crisis. 24 Hours of Reality will take place around the world from Pakistan to Cape Verde, and from Indonesia to Alaska.
“Extreme droughts, terrible storms, and larger floods are devastating many parts of the world,” said Gore. “Today, climate change is no longer a prediction: It’s a reality. Yet around the world, we are still subjected to polluter-financed misinformation and propaganda designed to mislead people about the dangers we face from the unfolding climate crisis.”
The former Vice President added: “The time to face reality is now. 24 Hours of Reality will bridge oceans and cultures — in every time zone — to bring the world together to emphasize the truth about the climate crisis and how we can solve it.”
24 Hours of Reality will be presented in 13 languages, with one presentation for each time zone. At 7 p.m. local time during each of the 24 Hours of Reality, a citizen activist will connect the dots between extreme weather and a warming climate, highlighting both the impacts of climate change and the inspiring solutions emerging in each time zone around the world. These local presentations will be interlaced with a studio presentation from New York City, featuring videos, live interviews and more.
The event will begin in Mexico City on September 14 at 7 p.m. Central Time, move westward around the globe, and conclude with a presentation in New York City by former Vice President Gore on September 15 at 7 p.m. Eastern Time.

24 Hours of Reality
Al Gore hasn’t been in the spotlight much since a few years ago, when he was the most recognizable crusader for fighting climate change. But now he’s making a new push for a cleaner, more environmentally-friendly world. He’s launching a new global campaign called The Climate Reality Project. It’s a project that sets out to “reveal the complete truth about the climate crisis.”
Al Gore undertook this project because he says big oil and coal companies have deliberately misled the world about the reality of climate change. The effort is centered around a “24 Hours of Reality” which will take place September 14th – September 15th. During those 24 hours, Gore will give 24 multimedia presentations with pictures, information and slides revealing the effects of climate change on the planet. Then a panel of climate scientists will take over and discuss ways to solve the climate crisis.
