24 Hours of Climate Reality - Watch It

Posted on 15 November 2012 by dana1981

The Climate Reality Project has a 24-hour show subtitled The Dirty Weather Report streaming online on November 14th and 15th.  The first few hours have been pretty interesting.  For exaple, I just learned that a few weeks ago, the Mexican congress almost unanimously passed ambitious climate legislation, and over 90% of Costa Rica's electricity now comes from renewable sources (while its economy has grown rapidly).

Watch The Program.

  1. Also worth watching for Australian viewers, Catalyst at 8pm on ABC1 tonight (15/11/12) - a global warming special,

  2. The show just ended, as did the competing WUWT climate denialist misinformation show. Final tally: Gore's program got 16 million views, Watts' got 16 thousand. So for every person misinformed about climate change over the past 24 hours, a thousand were correctly informed. I think that's a fair trade.

  3. I found it often impossible to watch most of this, as the default setting was for high-def levels of video, which my computer does not support. In the final hour or so of transmission, I did manage to find a hidden click-button-thingy which allowed me to watch in low-definition. So the whole experience became bearable. But I am now trying to watch the Arctic segment, which apparently doesn't have a "low" option, and it seems that I must spend 2 1/2 hours on this, to watch one hour, with a pattern of 5 seconds of dialogue - 10 seconds pause - 5 seconds dialogue - 10 seconds pause. Could they not set the default setting to "low"? (Or at least offer an lo-def option for the non-live, catch-up mode of viewing?) Setting them to "high" virtually excludes everybody who is 1. only just computer literate 2. not on superfast broadband. But I suppose that's just the 99%. Still, the presenter's dress looks really good in high-definition, and I get loads of freeze-frames to examine this at my leisure. Leaving this here as I suppose that you are in contact with them, having been so widely quoted in the "reality drops" site. Have a word, will you?

  4. Final tally: Gore's program got 16 million views That's better than his 24 hr network Current TV (It's for sale if anybody is interested) gets. I tried watching some of both (Gore & Watts) & couldn't stay interested. I guess it's an acquired taste.
