Climate Reality Leaders training, day 2

Today, I went back for day 2 of the Climate Reality Project Leadership Corps training. Remember that two-hour slide show I mentioned yesterday? Well, Al Gore delivered a 10-minute version of it in the morning. Gore also introduced a trailer for the upcoming Inconvenient Sequel, opening at a theater near you on July 28, and it got a standing ovation. I thought that only happened at Comic-Con.

We got to hear Gore give that 10-minute presentation, heard from an Indivisible organizer, and listened to panels of scientists and public health experts. (They also organized for some direct action here in Seattle/Bellevue, but I had to duck out to do some work.) The tone is shifting toward how to be an activist. Climate Reality Project also got us up and running on their “hub” – an online forum they use to keep us connected and active. Best of all, Gore’s presentations are available on the hub, so we can download them and adapt them for our use.
