2011 Sept. 14: Al Gore launches Climate Reality
The Climate Reality ProjectOn September 14, Reality needs you.
Every day, millions of dollars are spent trying to convince you that climate change isn’t real. Or that humans don’t cause it. Or that the biggest polluters are trying to solve the problem.
But climate change is a reality. And big polluters — drawing from the playbook used by the big tobacco companies years ago — are trying to fool citizens and consumers around the globe by denying proven science. So how can we get the world to embrace reality? How can we share the truth about the climate crisis?
Meet The Climate Reality Project. On September 14, in a 24-hour event spanning the globe, we’re introducing a brand-new organization with one clear goal: to bring the facts about the climate crisis into the mainstream by engaging everyone — especially leaders like you — in a conversation about how to solve it.
But enough talk for now. Former Vice President Al Gore helped create this video to explain where we are going. Watch it:
Leading up to September 14, we will need our most ardent supporters with us to help promote the event and start the conversation. That means we need you.
We’re building this new project on the foundation of the remarkable work we’ve done together as the Alliance for Climate Protection. We are joining together with The Climate Project — a group of volunteer climate Presenters trained by Al Gore. So when you hear from us moving forward, it will be as The Climate Reality Project.
Thank you for your continued support.
