Al Gore's New Project: Climate Reality

For some reason, at the weekend I had an overwhelming urge to watch An Inconvenient Truth for the first time in a number of years. It still packs a punch, but I was left wanting an update.

Well, maybe my subconscious was registering this event. Al Gore's new baby is called The Climate Reality Project, and aims to cut through all the denial nonsense with a new show broadcast every hour throughout the day, corresponding with 8pm in every timezone.

You can sign up for updates in anticipation of the event on their website. Here's what Gore has to say, followed by the promotional video:
"24 Hours of Reality will focus the world's attention on the full truth, scope, scale and impact of the climate crisis. To remove the doubt. Reveal the deniers. And catalyze urgency around an issue that affects every one of us"
