The nonprofit Environmental Resource Center and the city of Ketchum are co-hosting an "online streamed" event next Wednesday featuring Nobel laureate and former Vice President Al Gore, who is taking to the web to raise awareness about climate change.

The event, "24 Hours of Reality" will begin with a live-streamed introduction by Gore and an in-person message from Ketchum resident Zach Crist.

"Beginning in Mexico City and proceeding westward around the globe, '24 Hours of Reality' offers a round-the-clock snapshot of global climate change realities in real time, sharing unique perspectives from Pakistan to Cape Verde, Mexico City to Kotzebue, Alaska, Jakarta to London," states a news release issued by the city of Ketchum.

The local event runs from 6-8 p.m. on Wednesday, Sept. 14, at Ketchum City Hall. The entire 24 hours will be streamed live online. Participants may watch the remainder of the online broadcast from their homes.
