THE CLIMATE REALITY PROJECT ~ Is working in the trenches! ~ Al Gore

We must take multiple approaches to address the climate crisis!


From Al Gore, Founder and Chairman, The Climate Reality Project, Tuesday, November 28, 2023

This Giving Tuesday, I’m thinking about how far we’ve come and how far we must go to ensure a livable planet for generations to come. Together, our Climate Reality community is at the forefront of the fight for real and urgent solutions – and demanding greater integrity and action from local, national, and global climate decision-makers.

But in the face of record-breaking temperatures, more frequent and severe extreme weather disasters, and Big Oil’s stubborn hold over our political and financial systems, it is imperative that we continue this fight and address the climate crisis at the speed and scale it demands.

To meet this critical moment, Climate Reality has set an ambitious Giving Tuesday goal to raise $25,000 by midnight tonight to propel our movement forward. Right now, we are expanding our urgent work to reduce emissions, call out greenwashing, finance a just transition, and strengthen international cooperation on climate. But this ambitious work will take the strongest grassroots movement we can build – and we all must play a part in it.

That’s why I’m asking you personally: Will you make your first gift of $15 or more before midnight tonight to help Climate Reality grow our global grassroots movement? Thanks to a generous donor, all gifts made until tonight’s deadline will be matched, dollar-for-dollar, up to our $25,000 goal. That means your gift will go TWICE as far in our fight for a safe and sustainable future.

DONATE $15 (BECOMES $30!), DONATE $25 (BECOMES $50!), DONATE $50 (BECOMES $100!),

The stakes for our planet are the highest they’ve ever been. But our 50,000 trained Climate Reality Leaders across the globe are taking bold action to prevent and stop the fossil fuel projects worsening this crisis and are pushing their towns and cities to transition to 100% clean energy.

The reality is that we have all of the solutions to move swiftly away from fossil fuels and make significant cuts in greenhouse gas pollution. But what we NEED is action across every segment of our society to activate those solutions now – and the only way to achieve that is together. It’s critical that we grow our community of grassroots activists and mobilize thousands more worldwide.

Please, don’t miss this rare opportunity to make a meaningful difference for our planet. Will you make a Giving Tuesday gift now and DOUBLE your impact to power our grassroots fight for a just and sustainable world?

I know I can count on you to support our grassroots fight.

National Historian To Lecture at Shepherdstown’s NCTC on History of Environmental Activism

By Marsha Chwalik, WV Metro News, November 30, 2023

SHEPHERDSTOWN, W.Va. — The collection of well-known names researched for a book by presidential historian Douglas Brinkley is remarkable due to their diverse backgrounds as well as what they have in common.

Brinkley’s book Silent Spring Revolution chronicles the work of a host of historical figures who played a part in conservation efforts.

Dr. Mark Madison, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service Historian at the National Conservation Training Center in Shepherdstown. He says Brinkley will talk about his research into the rise of environmental activism during a period called “The Long Sixties” from 1960 to 1973.

Dr. Madison says during that time, DDT and widely accepted practices had almost wiped out some species of animals and set waterways on fire.

Dr. Madison says the Endangered Species act was passed almost unanimously in Congress, and President Nixon signed a lot of environmental protection acts into law.

Brinkley did part of his research on the campus of the NCTC in Shepherdstown, which houses a number of Rachel Carson artifacts.

Douglas Brinkley’s presentation is set for Thursday, November 30th at 7:30 p.m. on the campus of the NCTC in Shepherdstown.

The event is free and open to the public.
