“24 Hours of Reality” will broadcast a presentation by Al Gore every hour for 24 hours across 24 different time zones from Wednesday to Thursday, with the aim of convincing climate change deniers and driving action against global warming among households, schools and businesses.
The campaign also asks people to hand over control of their social networking accounts on Facebook and Twitter to it for 24 hours to deliver Gore’s message.
“There will be 200 new slides arguing the connection between more extreme weather and climate change,” Trewin Restorick, chief executive of the event’s UK partner Global Action Plan, told Reuters on Monday.
“There will be a full-on assault on climate skeptics, exploring where they get their funding from.”
Isn’t it interesting that very few will explore where it is that the Church of Chicken Little gets their funding? And more interesting that those funding sources are never seen to be a reason to cast doubt on the movement?
It’s a line of questioning I’d like to see taken up with Mr. Restorick and those of his ilk.
I won’t hold my breath.
