Tomorrow at 7pm is the launch of the 24 hour Climate Reality Project. Broadcast world-wide in 13 languages. Mark your calendars.
“24 Hours of Reality will focus the world’s attention on the full truth, scope, scale and impact of the climate crisis. To remove the doubt. Reveal the deniers. And catalyze urgency around an issue that affects every one of us.” - Al Gore, Climate Reality Project
To remove the doubt.
Reveal the deniers.
Set those dials, folks. T-minus 24 hours. We all need to watch. We are all soldiers, all climate ninjas that need to hit the ground and help change minds and open eyes.
If temperatures continue to rise to the ranges predicted by the IPCC reports, habitat change will be occurring at a much faster pace than species can adapt to it. This means that they will have only a few options:
- Get lucky and somehow deal with it.
- Move to a nearby, more reasonable habitat (e.g. higher altitude)
- Go extinct
A new study out of Germany says that as many as 80% of genetic variation could disappear as a result of the anticipated temperature changes. All the white branches that you see in the tree of life above are species who have no viable adaptive mechanism or no nearby habitat … and could therefore disappear.
It’s more than polar bears, folks. This is on us.
Pack this video as potent ammunition in your climate science arsenal. This heat is no accident.
If climate deniers insist on not helping themselves, we must help them.
Keep calm and spread the knowledge.
