“24 Hours of Reality,” former Vice President Al Gore’s global event focusing on the truth about climate change, is coming up on September 14, one week from today. Gore’s nonprofit Climate Reality Project is hosting the event. Starting in Mexico City, one presentation in each of the 24 time zones will take place over the course of a day, concluding with Gore speaking in New York City.

The Climate Reality Project has produced two short teasers for the event, “The Fat Lady Sings” and “Denial Hits The Fan”:
