Turning Interest Into Action
In 2006, Nobel Laureate and former US Vice President Al Gore got the world talking about climate change with the Academy Award-winning film An Inconvenient Truth.
It was just the beginning of a climate revolution. Later that year, he founded what would become The Climate Reality Project to move the conversation forward and turn awareness into action all across the Earth.
Today, as Climate Reality, we’re a diverse group of passionate individuals who’ve come together to solve the greatest challenge of our time. We are activists, cultural leaders, organizers, scientists, and storytellers committed to building a sustainable future together. (Learn more at the Global Site)
At The Climate Reality Project: Atlanta Chapter, we strive to play a crucial role in promoting clean, efficient and sustainable consumption, energy generation and transportation practices while promoting an equitable division of benefits and costs throughout Georgia and the Atlanta area.
Here at the Atlanta Chapter of The Climate Reality Project, we’re committed to investing our expertise and resources in order to further achieve our cause. Since 2000, we’ve been supporting our community members in a variety of ways and measuring our success not by monetary size, but by more qualitative measurements such as the scale and effectiveness of our efforts. Just imagine what we can achieve together!
The Climate Reality Project: Atlanta Chapter knows that our strength lies not only in the mission we stand by, but most importantly through the actions of our initiatives.
The mission of the Atlanta Chapter of the Climate Reality Project is to catalyze local and global solutions to the climate crisis and to be leaders in this movement.
You see that pale, blue dot?” Gore asks about the planet Earth in “An Inconvenient Truth,” a 2006 documentary. “That's us. Everything that has ever happened in all of human history, has happened on that pixel. All the triumphs and all the tragedies, all the wars, all the famines, all the major advances... it's our only home. And that is what is at stake, our ability to live on planet Earth, to have a future as a civilization. I believe this is a moral issue, it is your time to seize this issue, it is our time to rise again to secure our future.
