Gore-a-Thon: ’24 Hours of Reality’

It isn’t often you hear the words “Al Gore” and “reality” in the same sentence in any place that doesn’t have straps on the beds, let alone hear them for 24 straight hours:

Former Vice President Al Gore will renew his 30-year campaign to convince skeptics of the link between climate change and extreme weather events this week in a 24-hour global multi-media event.

“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.

Considering “24 Hours of Reality” is being promoted by a guy who is hell-bent to become the first carbon billionaire, this part is especially funny (warning: if you’re drinking coffee, cover your monitor with cellophane):

“There will be a full-on assault on climate skeptics, exploring where they get their funding from.”

Is Mr. Haney questioning the motives of Oliver Douglas? It sounds that way.

Sources tell me that, to close out the Gore-a-Thon, Al will take the stage and sing an emotional rendition of Big Yellow Taxi.
