Al Gore won the Nobel Peace Prize for championing the environmental and man-made climate change cause. Come learn about this Nobel Prize-worthy issue and how it impacts the future of our world in an updated "An Inconvenient Truth" presentation from Al Gore's Climate Reality Project by Peter Kelley, communications mentor to the UMD Solar Decathlon team.
WHAT IS THE CLIMATE REALITY PROJECT?
Climate change is not your fault for the car you drive, the lights you turn on, or the food you eat. The climate crisis is our problem. Real solutions, systemic solutions, innovative solutions, can only come when we address it together. Thatís what The Climate Reality Project will do. Without doubt. Without delay. And with your help.
The Climate Reality Project is bringing the facts about the climate crisis into the mainstream and engaging the public in conversation about how to solve it. We help citizens around the world discover the truth and take meaningful steps to bring about change.
Founded and chaired by Al Gore, Nobel Laureate and former Vice President of the United States, The Climate Reality Project has more than 5 million members and supporters worldwide. It is guided by one simple truth: The climate crisis is real and we know how to solve it.
This event is also the kickoff of the ACC Clean Energy Challenge, a new business plan competition encouraging students from all universities throughout the southeastern United States to develop successful business plans for clean energy.
