Two scientific fields find themselves under attack in the United States. Evolutionary biology and climatology. No matter what the science shows, no matter how great the evidence, evangelicals dismiss the whole idea of evolution, and our free market dogmatists, operating under the assumption that “the business of America is business,” reject conclusions accepted by 98% of climate scientists — that human activities are warming the planet. Especially when it comes to climate change, we put dogma before science at our own peril. And that’s why The Reality Climate Project, led by Al Gore, is hosting today and tomorrow an online program called 24 Hours of Reality. Here’s what it’s all about:
24 Presenters. 24 Time Zones. 13 Languages. 1 Message. 24 Hours of Reality is a worldwide event to broadcast the reality of the climate crisis. It will consist of a new multimedia presentation created by Al Gore and delivered once per hour for 24 hours, representing every time zone around the globe. Each hour people living with the reality of climate change will connect the dots between recent extreme weather events — including floods, droughts and storms — and the manmade pollution that is changing our climate. We will offer a round-the-clock, round-the-globe snapshot of the climate crisis in real time. The deniers may have millions of dollars to spend, but we have a powerful advantage. We have reality.
