The Human Impact of Climate Change: Personal Stories from Bangladesh, India, and China
Hosted by Al Gore and The Climate Reality Project, "24 Hours of Reality: The Cost of Carbon" highlights the impacts of climate change in Asia due to global carbon pollution. Climate change has hit home across the globe, especially in countries like Bangladesh, China, and India. In Hunan Province, China, global warming-induced drought is causing critical crops to fail at record rates. Torrential floods in Uttarakhand, India have caused not only loss of livelihood and infrastructure, but the unfortunate deaths of 5,750 people. Farmers in Bangladesh are losing their land to rising seas. Carbon pollution is to blame: we will continue to pay the cost of carbon today unless we act.
24 Hours of Reality: The #CostOfCarbon traveled across six continents and the poles, identifying the specific costs we're paying for carbon pollution. Celebrities, scientists, economists, and other experts joined former Vice President Al Gore and Climate Reality President and CEO Maggie L. Fox to explore the diverse impacts climate change is having around the world.
