In case you missed the “memo” November 14th is 24 Hours of Reality, The Dirty Weather Report. Last year, our Climate Mama, Harriet Shugarman was a panelist and “lady-in-waiting” at the first 24 Hours of Reality.

According to Maggie L. Fox, President and CEO of The Climate Reality Project: “The goal of the 24 Hours of Reality initiative is to mobilize the world to confront the urgency of the climate crisis by creating a cultural movement around the reality of extreme weather and climate change.” From November 14-15, 24 Hours of Reality: The Dirty Weather Report will draw real-world connections between the climate crisis and the realities of extreme weather around the world. The entire event will be broadcast live over the Internet by Ustream, and can be viewed at
