Former Vice President Al Gore will renew his 30-year campaign to convince skeptics of the link between climate change and extreme weather events this week in a 24-hour global multi-media event.

24 Hours of Reality” will broadcast a presentation by Al Gore every hour for 24 hours across 24 different time zones from Wednesday to Thursday, with the aim of convincing climate change deniers and driving action against global warming among households, schools and businesses.

The campaign also asks people to hand over control of their social networking accounts on Facebook and Twitter to it for 24 hours to deliver Gore’s message

    “Broadcast”

    You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.

    The faithful will find it and tell their friends, reinforcing the fact that everyone they know is watching it.

    A Wollfie note to any and all (not a lot of ‘em) Facebook “Friends”:

    If you or any of ‘your’ “Friends” give this snake oil salesman control of, or even post this thing without suitable Snark, you will be hereinafter De-Friended aeturnus.

    Thank you very much.

    In a less polite society, Al Gore would be doing the Thorazine shuffle.

    Would it be rude of me to tell that bloated gas bag to GFY?

    Betcha he’s scammed more than Tammy Faye and Jimmy ever did.

    24 hrs of that will raise the Global Warming index 200 percent and have a bigger carbon footprint than a volcano.

    Hey wait, he is going to be saying the same things and doing it in the same manner, just on a bigger stage. Why does that sound familiar.
