Former US Vice President Al Gore will host a one-hour special broadcast of The Climate Reality Project’s 24 Hours of Reality: Protect Our Planet, Protect Ourselves, which will explore how the climate crisis threatens human health worldwide. The special will premiere on Nat Geo WILD on Thursday, December 20, 2018, at 7 PM ET.
Celebrities, musicians, elected officials, and thought leaders will join the broadcast to highlight the climate-health connection around the world, including an exclusive video from U2, special appearances from Claire Danes, Bryan Cranston, Tea Leoni, Mandy Patinkin, Bill Nye, and Jaden Smith. Also, thought provoking interviews with former US EPA Administrator Gina McCarthy, Mayor of Los Angeles Eric Garcetti, and First Minister of Scotland Nicola Sturgeon will round out this special presentation of 24 Hours of Reality: Protect Our Planet, Protect Ourselves.
“Our health depends on the health of the planet,” said Vice President Gore. “The climate crisis is not an abstract issue; it has direct impacts on us and the people we love the most. I’m looking forward to exploring the climate and health connection on this broadcast and to discussing how we can take bold and ambitious action to ensure that future generations can live long, healthy lives full of opportunity and promise.”
A production of The Climate Reality Project and produced by Peter Green, Danielle Addair, and Steve Addair of ShoulderHill Entertainment, this special will highlight unique regional health impacts and celebrate local, national, and international efforts to implement meaningful climate solutions.
