The Human Impact of Climate Change: Personal Stories from Somalia, Ghana, and Kenya

( Hosted by Al Gore and The Climate Reality Project, “24 Hours of Reality: The Cost of Carbon” shares the stories of real people affected by the impacts of climate change in Africa due to global carbon pollution. We tell the stories of Somali refugees affected by drought and famine forced to flee to Kenya just to survive. In Ghana, rising sea levels are driving residents of coastal villages further and further inland. And in Kenya, a lake that once provided fisherman with their livelihoods is rapidly drying up, driving political instability.

24 Hours of Reality: The #CostOfCarbon traveled across six continents and the poles, identifying the specific costs we’re paying for carbon pollution. Celebrities, scientists, economists, and other experts joined former Vice President Al Gore and Climate Reality President and CEO Maggie L. Fox to explore the diverse impacts climate change is having around the world.
