Human Impact Climate Change Personal Stories U.S. and Mexico



Hosted by Al Gore and The Climate Reality Project, "24 Hours of Reality: The Cost of Carbon" travels across North America to document the human cost of carbon from Hurricane Sandy, wildfires, floods, and drought. We visit Staten Island one year after Sandy to hear from homeowners who survived the storm to find there was no home to come back to. In Manitou Springs, we hear how raging wildfires were just a prelude to devastating floods. In Durango, Mexico, farmers tell of land lost to drought and a community dying.

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.
