(Newser) – For those who just can't get enough Al Gore, this might be overkill even for you: The former vice president will attempt to take over the globe this week, by way of a 24-hour worldwide multimedia presentation aimed at winning over climate-change skeptics. "24 Hours of Reality" will have an emphasis on the link between climate change and "cataclysmic" weather, and will come to life as a presentation by Gore that will air every hour for 24 hours through 24 time zones this Wednesday to Thursday, Reuters reports.

“There will be 200 new slides arguing the connection between more extreme weather and climate change,” says an exec involved in the presentation. “There will be a full-on assault on climate skeptics, exploring where they get their funding from.” And you can get involved: Gore would, pretty please, like to take over your Facebook and/or Twitter accounts for 24 hours, during which time his campaign will pass his message along to your friends and followers. You can check it all out at Gore’s Climate Reality Project website.
