Al Gore's latest project - 24 Hours of Reality - is a powerful broadcast (online on Ustream) showing us the way we could do better when it
comes to discussing environmental topics.
The basic format is sort of like Fox News - i.e. hot looking news people - coupled with powerful guests - and disaster weather footage that made the Weather Chanel what it is today.
Tune in to see what I'm talking about: http://www.24hoursofreality.org
It's got everything that makes TV so compelling: great guests (World Bank president, a NJ housewife) and international appeal, along with international show hosts from Asia, Europe, Africa, North and South America, and more. The footage is undeniable. And the calls to action compelling. See what you think.
Along with this comes the news today from CalCAN (California Climate and Agriculture Network) that is has new fact sheets on its web site showing the impact various agricultural approaches have on climate change. Of course organic is best - no nitrogen fertilizers from fossil fuels. See the fact sheets here.
