24 hour live broadcast will focus on climate and  health.  Climate Reality Chairman and former US Vice President Al Gore is set to host The Climate Reality Project’s eighth-annual 24 Hours of Reality broadcast on
December 3-4, appearing alongside some of the world’s most recognized celebrities, elected officials, and thought leaders to call attention to the climate crisis and how we solve it.

This year’s broadcast, 24 Hours of Reality: Protect Our Planet, Protect Ourselves, will explore how the climate crisis is threatening human health worldwide. Here is the broadcasting schedule for Europe. 


On December 4 th at 3:00pm CET, the broadcast will feature Spain. With summer heat waves putting massive amounts of the population at risk, Spain has recently pushed hard toward embracing renewables. The hour will feature a live Q and A with Dr. Maria Neira of the World Health Organization.

At 4:00pm CET, the broadcast will feature Scandinavia. With a focus on Sweden, Denmark, Finland and more, we’ll take a look at some of the world’s leading adopters of renewable energy. The hour will feature a performance by pop artist Robyn, a conversation between Al Gore and President Sauli Niinistö of Finland, an exploration of an island community showing the world the potential of clean energy, and a conversation with Dr. Johan Rockstrøm, co-director of the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research.

At 5:00pm CET, the broadcast will feature Germany. While Germany has long championed clean energy, its commitments haven’t made it immune to the health effects of the climate crisis. The hour will feature a live presentation by Vice President Al Gore, along with a conversation with Eckart Würzner, mayor of Heidelberg, who has spearheaded the city’s ambitious emissions targets.

At 6:00pm CET, the broadcast will feature France. As host to the groundbreaking COP21 meeting in 2015, France is now seeing the health impacts of the climate crisis in everything from heat related deaths to dengue fever on the rise. The hour will feature a live interview with Helena Molin Valdes of the United Nations Environment Program and a live presentation by
Vice President Al Gore.

At 7:00pm CET, the broadcast will feature Poland. As world leaders reconvene this December in Katowice, Poland, for the United Nations’ annual session on the climate crisis, the goal is stronger action. The hour will feature live interviews from notables and in-depth Q and A on the
COP 24 session, a live performance by Marcin Patrzalek, a live slideshow by Vice President Al Gore, and a look at the consequences of particulate air pollution and rising sea levels threatening the country.

At 8:00pm CET, the broadcast will feature the United Kingdom. From floods to infectious disease, the UK is experiencing the health consequences of a warming world, as well as dangerously high levels of air pollution despite reduced reliance on fossil fuels. This hour features a live performance by musical artist Arlissa, a live slideshow by Vice President Al Gore, and a conversation with Dr. Nick Watts, head of the Lancet Countdown, which tracks the relationship of and progress on health and climate change.

“Our health depends on the health of the planet,” said Al 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 year’s 24 Hours 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.

Since last month’s release of the IPCC’s Special Report on Global Warming of 1.5C underscored the need for a rapid transition away from fossil fuels to limit the worst impacts of the climate crisis, the world has been focused on what a warming Earth means fo ourselves and our families. More and more people planet-wide are beginning to see how fossil-fueled climate change leads to growing health threats from increasingly dangerous storms to spreading diseases to shrinking food and water supplies.
 
24 Hours of Reality: Protect Our Planet, Protect Ourselves will bring the world together to explore these many threats and highlight the clean energy solutions that can help us create a healthier, more prosperous future for us all.

Solving the climate crisis is no longer just about creating a healthier, better world for future generations. It’s also about making sure that the people on Earth today – our family, friends, and neighbors – can live without serious and existential threats to public health,” said Climate Reality President and CEO Ken Berlin. “

The good news is that clean energy solutions are here now. A transition to renewable energy isn’t just good for our economy; it’s necessary for the
health and well-being of billions around the world.

Produced by Peter Green, Danielle Addair and Steve Addair of ShoulderHill Entertainment, this year’s 24 Hours of Reality will air live from Los Angeles beginning on Monday, December 3 at 9 PM EST / 6 PM PST. The show will travel around the globe, highlighting unique regional health impacts and celebrating local, national, and international efforts to implement meaningful
climate solutions. The program will also broadcast two hours live from locations in China and India.
