After “An Inconvenient Truth“, the 2006 feature documentary to warn of the effects of climate change, the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize recipient has launched a new campaign to reach the general public about climate issues.
Al Gore shared the 2007 Nobel with the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). The award allowed him to return to the spotlight and share his vision of “global warming”.
On Monday, September 12, the Vice President in a press release officially announced the long-prepared, special day.
In 26 cities and 13 languages, “24 Hours of Reality” was a global event featuring a multimedia presentation created by Al Gore broadcasted every hour for 24 hours in each of the 24 time zones around the world.
The multimedia presentation, available online, presents scientific advances on the phenomenon of global warming.
Every hour, from Mexico to Alaska for example, those concerned with the effects of climate change demonstrated the relationship between the recent extreme weather events such as floods and droughts among others, and pollution; a relationship that could be affecting our climate.
