Al Gore‘s latest climate change project, 24 Hours of Reality, will portray stories from around the world on the impacts of climate change. Twenty-four scientists, businessmen, and activists will begin to live-stream their experiences on the project’s website at 7 p.m. local time in Mexico City on September 14. The presentation will be added to every hour, in twenty-four time zones and thirteen different languages, until the former vice president wraps up the multimedia presentation 24 hours after launch in New York City

The presentation will focus on the connections between extreme weather events and how weather patterns are changing. The project’s leaders have issued a statement proclaiming their purpose is to “tell the truth about the climate crisis and reject the misinformation we hear every day,” falsities that the project blames on what Gore calls “the well-financed disinformation and denial campaign run by the fossil fuel industries.” 

Despite Gore’s previous efforts, the documentary An Inconvenient Truth, and his Alliance for Climate Protection project, on which Gore spent over $100 million dollars, fewer Americans than ever before believe in anthropomorphic climate change. The percent of the population who believes that carbon dioxide emissions are warming the climate has dropped almost 30 percent since 2007, according to a recent UPI study.
