This will be online. Any chance we can get it broadcast into the congressional offices? Probably not.

Starting on Wednesday, Gore will expound on climate change for 24 hours straight, with a one-hour presentation to be broadcast each hour in a different time zone. Gore’s organization will also commandeer the social media accounts of willing participants throughout the event, called "24 Hours of Reality.

"The presentations will feature "200 new slides arguing the connection between more extreme weather and climate change," an official from one of Gore’s partner organizations told Reuters.

"There will be a full-on assault on climate skeptics, exploring where they get their funding from.

"You might think that if slide shows and lectures from Al Gore could sway climate change deniers, they would have done so already. But there is evidence that some might need a refresher. Concern over climate change in the U.S. has dropped from 62 percent in 2007 to 48 percent today, according to opinion polls.

More information about Gore's campaign is online at the website of the Climate Reality Project.
