Our hope is that by raising the awareness of our fellow citizens about this crisis and informing them about potential solutions, all of us, together, can preserve the climate balance on which our planet depends...
The Climate Project, a nonprofit organization based in Nashville, TN, began operations in June 2006 with the mission of increasing public awareness of the climate crisis at a grassroots level in the United States and abroad. By April 2007, a diverse group of 1,000 volunteers from throughout the U.S. had been trained by Al Gore himself to present a version of the slideshow featured in the Academy Award-winning film An Inconvenient Truth. As of May 2008, they had delivered more than 15,000 presentations and reached a combined audience of well more than a million people.

"Young people… aren’t going to see Elton John, or Rod Stewart, or Roger friggin’ Waters. And, in some insane, alternate reality, if my 17-year-old stepson wanted to take a girl to go see Phil Collins, he damn sure would not lay out the cost of a PlayStation3 to do it.

"Hell, they had to wait on Eddie Van Halen to recover from hip surgery and go through rehab before he could shake his money maker and, he was the one touring.
