The Most Important Videos You'll Watch Today
Yesterday was the Climate Reality Project's third annual global broadcast of 24 Hours of Reality. The live broadcast began streaming yesterday at 11 a.m. in Los Angeles. As part of the production, The Climate Reality Project creative team built the Cost of Carbon tool a crowdsourced site that gives users data visualization of their own "cost of carbon." Users can connect through their social networks, type in their location, and see how climate change could affect their lives (through increased risk of drought, flood, wildfire, and so forth) before sharing the graph online. Those who add their names to the website will have their results fed into the 24 Hours of Reality broadcast and will be encouraged to send their Cost of Carbon assessment to world leaders of 20 of the most carbon-polluting countries. The Climate Reality Project creative team also developed the below short films about the cost of our wasteful use of carbon, the way to move forward, and how to take action on this issue today.
