“Dear Los Angeles Beat readers,

We are pleased to invite you to join us this week when millions of people will tune in to watch 24 Hours of Reality: The Dirty Weather Report, a live, online broadcast that will bring the world together around the reality of the climate crisis.

For a full 24 hours, beginning Wednesday at 5 pm PST and ending Thursday at 5 pm PST, we will convene the world’s leading business leaders, climate scientists, community groups, philanthropists, activists, and religious leaders to discuss climate change and to empower you to join the movement by taking action.

As we struggle to rebuild after the heartbreaking devastation from Superstorm Sandy, one lesson is clear: Global climate disruption is affecting our lives like we’ve never before seen. Please click here to learn more about the program, including the roster of experts and speakers, the schedule, and how you can be involved.”



NOVEMBER 14-15, 2012

Dirty energy has created a world of Dirty Weather. Today, climate disruption affects us all. And it will take all of us together to solve it. Please join the Climate Reality Project for 24 Hours of Reality: The Dirty Weather Report, when together we will stand up and demand real solutions to the climate crisis.

The goal of the Climate Reality Project is to “present the facts about the climate crisis and encourage the general public to establish a conversation about how to fix it.” Its “24  hours of reality” will feature 24 presenters, 24 time zones, 13 languages and one message: climate change is an alarming and serious reality

Each hour, viewers will be invited/encouraged to “connect the dots” between our world’s weather and the resulting events we are experiencing (droughts, storms, floods, etc.) and how these events directly tie into man-made pollution. Utilizing real time, the project will provide a “snapshot” of climate change globally.
