As an intro or teaser, here are a few quick facts about the Climate Reality project:
- 24 Hours of Reality will be presented in 13 languages, with one presentation for each time zone — making it a truly global event. Locations include Mexico City, Mexico; Boulder, Colorado; New Delhi, India; Beijing, China; and more.
- At 7 p.m. local time during each of the 24 Hours of Reality, a citizen activist personally trained by former Vice President Gore 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.
