The Climate Reality Project was founded and chaired by Nobel Laureate and former Vice President of the USA Al Gore. The Climate Reality Project is dedicated to catalyzing a global solution to the climate crisis by making urgent action necessity across every level of society. The slogan is, “we must change”, “we can change”, and “we will change”. With glaciers melting, seas rising, and 16 of the Earth’s 17 hottest years on record coming this century, we know humanity must change and act boldly to solve the climate crisis.
The good news is that we know we can. Solar, wind, and other renewable solutions are becoming more affordable every year. And all around the world, countries from China to Chile are seizing the moment, working to cut emissions under the Paris Agreement and create a safe, sustainable, and prosperous future powered by clean energy. The job of Climate Reality project is to ensure that we all become a part of this change.
