|In the decade since the release of An Inconvenient Truth, a lot has changed. Climate science has made major advances. Renewable energy, such as solar and wind power, has become cheaper than fossil fuel-based electricity in many parts of the world. Electric vehicles are more popular than ever.
Last week, the president signed an executive order to begin rolling back environmental protections and policies, including the Clean Power Plan, a cornerstone of our nation’s commitment to reduce overall greenhouse gas emissions. These actions are a misguided step away from a sustainable, carbon-free future for ourselves and generations to come.
Today, with your support, we’re investing in the next generation of climate activists around the world through our Climate Reality Leadership Corps training program. These Climate Reality Leaders learn the practical tools they need to educate and inspire a new wave of curiosity, innovation, and climate action in their communities. My upcoming film, An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power, features the inspiring work of many of these Leaders and shows just how important everyday activists are to the fight for solutions to the climate crisis.
No matter how discouraging the president’s executive order may be, we must, we can, and we will solve the climate crisis. No one man or group can stop the escalating momentum we are experiencing in the fight to protect our planet.
Please consider making a generous contribution to Climate Reality today to support our efforts to mobilize citizens of the world to help put an end to the climate crisis and grow the clean energy economy.
With your help, we can truly make a difference and create a better tomorrow.
With gratitude and hope,
Did you see former US Vice President Al Gore’s earlier message? Over 10 years after An Inconvenient Truth, he’s still enthusiastic and hopeful about creating a sustainable, economically sound future for our planet.
Practical climate solutions and pro-climate policies are being imagined, developed, and implemented every single day. But we must work together and fight hard to make sure the new administration understands that our future depends on making climate solutions a reality.
With your support, we’ll continue to train and elevate Climate Reality Leaders who are inspiring climate action in their communities. Carmen, make a donation today and help us reach our $100,000 goal.
Thank you for your generosity,
President and CEO
