Former Vice President Al Gore is launching a new activism program called the Climate Reality Project. Formerly known as the Alliance for Climate Protection, the Climate Reality Project has been revamped with a new name and goal, and will kick off with a live-streamed broadcast on Sept. 14, featuring 24 presenters in as many hours, and aptly titled “24 Hours of Reality.”

For the first event, “people all around the globe living with the impacts of climate change will connect the dots between recent extreme weather events — including floods, droughts and storms — and the man-made pollution that is changing our climate.”

The project, whose purpose is to provide education about global warming, is encouraging people from around the world to get involved, and has set up a Facebook page where fans can RSVP to participate in “24 Hours of Reality.”

According to Gore, who received the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize for his environmental activism, “The climate crisis knows no political boundaries. Ferocious storms and deadly heat waves are occurring with alarming frequency all over the world. We are living with the reality of the climate crisis every day. The only question is, how soon can we act?”

Maggie L. Fox, who headed up the Alliance for Climate Protection, will continue on as leader for the Climate Reality Project. Her mission for the project is to “dedicate our resources toward educating and engaging the public about the reality of the climate crisis and helping build the global movement for change.”
