    Pop Quiz: How Much Do You Know About the Climate Crisis?

    Climate Reality is hosting its sixth annual live online broadcast of 24 Hours of Reality on December 5-6. This year, we are discussing The Road Forward, and will travel around the world to the top 24 CO2-emitting nations, stopping in a new country each hour to focus on climate impacts as well as the potential for solutions and change.

    We’ll shine a spotlight on the challenges faced by each country and how the citizens, leaders, and people just like you are turning those challenges into opportunities to embrace a clean energy future.

    How well do you know some of the issues we’ll be looking at? Get a sneak peek with this quiz.

    Section 1: Renewable Energy


    What 24 Hours of Reality will spotlight:

    Everywhere we turn, another nation is embracing a renewable, clean energy future. On December 5-6, we’ll travel to South Africa, where solar power is gaining ground.

    We’ll check in with cheesemakers in France who are going carbon neutral by turning cheese into electricity. And we’ll visit several countries that are using solar power to bring much-needed electricity to their poorest rural communities.

    Sign up today for reminders on how to tune in.

    Section 2: Agriculture & Deforestation



    What 24 Hours of Reality will spotlight:

    The climate crisis is posing some serious challenges for flora and fauna on our planet, but many nations are meeting them head-on with unique solutions. Over the course of our live broadcast, we’ll head to Australia, where young farmers are taking the lead in changing perceptions about the climate crisis and its solutions.

    We’ll also hear from communities in Brazil and Indonesia who are working tirelessly to protect their most important commodity: the rainforest. Deforestation is a major issue in both countries, so implementing sustainable agriculture practices is key to mitigating climate damage there (and elsewhere – the world’s water cycle and oxygen production depend on these forests).

    Section 3: Paris Agreement & Action



    What 24 Hours of Reality will spotlight:

    The fight for a clean energy future depends on local action. Every success is colored by uplifting stories about communities coming together to change policies and individuals fighting to make a difference in their districts.

    December 5-6, we’ll hear about people like Park Won-Soon, the mayor of Seoul, South Korea, who has emerged as a leader in reimagining the role of a sustainable city. We’ll travel to Italy, where Pope Francis has repeatedly called for urgent action to address the climate crisis head-on and citizens have answered by converting 39 municipalities to run on 100 percent renewable energy.
