Former Vice President Al Gore is preparing to host another 24-hour-long broadcast to to sound the alarm on manmade global warming, capping off a disappointing year for the world’s most famous climate activist.
Gore’s environmental group will put on “24 Hours of Reality” broadcast in early December, which will feature celebrity guest appearances, including actress Helen Hunt, musical performances and segments on what different parts of the world are doing about global warming.
As in past years, the Climate Reality Project, Gore’s activist group, claims millions will tune in to the broadcast, which will be hosted by Gore himself from New York City — ironically, labelled the world’s most wasteful city.
Gore’s 24 hours of global warming activism will cap off a rather disappointing year for the former vice president.
For starters, President Donald Trump completely ignored Gore’s advice and announced that he would withdraw the U.S. from the Paris climate accord. Gore was a major backer of the Paris accord, which the Obama administration joined in 2015. Gore met with president-elect Trump in Trump Tower in 2016, where he personally implored him to stay in the Paris accord.
