Updates from The Climate Reality Project - 24 Hours of Reality: The Cost of Carbon
This year’s theme, The Cost of Carbon, explores the reality that we are all paying the price for carbon pollution today: tax dollars diverted for cleaning up damage from super storms; families displaced by flooding and wildfires; lives and livelihoods lost as terrain and weather patterns alter underfoot; food and water scarcity that leads to geopolitical instability. The list goes on and on and the costs go well beyond money. And yet few are reporting on the connection between carbon pollution and its devastating consequences – until now.
During the show, we will travel the world exploring six continents— Africa, Asia, North America, South America, Australia, and Europe — identifying the specific costs we are already paying for carbon pollution. Six hosts, one from each continent, will guide the segments. Along with former Vice President Al Gore and the President and CEO of Climate Reality Maggie L. Fox, our hosts and guests will be a variety of international celebrities, scientists, economists, business leaders, and other experts who will help us explore the diverse impacts that climate change is having around the world and the associated costs.
