Climate Reality Launches 24 Hours of Reality: 24 Reasons for Hope

- Prior to UN Climate Summit, Cultural Leaders Join Al Gore to Highlight Climate Solutions at Hand, Encourage Viewers to Dedicate a Day to Climate Fight

BOULDER, Colo., Aug. 27, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- The Climate Reality Project's fourth-annual 24 Hours of Reality broadcast, 24 Hours of Reality: 24 Reasons for Hope, will be presented live from Brooklyn, New York on September 16-17, beginning 12 PM EDT. This year's broadcast marks a turning point in the global movement for climate solutions, celebrating innovation and progress in fighting climate change around the world and kick starting a year of concerted action. Each hour, former U.S. Vice President and Climate Reality Chairman and Founder Al Gore will introduce a new reason to be hopeful about solving climate change and invite viewers worldwide to join this effort and dedicate a day in the coming year to helping end the climate crisis.

Airing one week prior to the U.N. Climate Summit, this year's 24 Hours of Reality program will share the good news that the tide is turning and solutions to climate change are here today. Each hour focuses on a specific milestone in efforts to address the crisis – from the plummeting cost of solar panels to the rise of climate action at the national level. Building on the previous three installments of award-winning programming, this year's broadcast will feature field reports with activists, town hall-style discussions with experts, and one-on-one interviews with celebrities, and artistic performances.

"Carbon pollution is already having a profound impact on our climate, but the good news is that we have all the tools we need to overcome this challenge," said Al Gore. "It's time our leaders stop asking 'What do we do?' and instead ask 'How can we accelerate the shift to a sustainable future powered by cheap, clean renewable energy, with sustainable agriculture and forestry.' This year's 24 Hours of Reality will signal a transition in the global conversation on climate change where we highlight the solutions at hand and empower individuals to take simple actions to aid this global fight."

The first 24 Hours of Reality began with the idea that much can change in a day. That's why, throughout the program, viewers will be asked to dedicate a day to making a difference in the climate fight. The combined efforts from viewers across the world will make 24 Reasons for Hope the kickoff for a global commitment to better our communities and transition to a clean energy future.

"24 Reasons for Hope will ask each of us to dedicate a day to make a difference," said Ken Berlin, President and CEO of The Climate Reality Project. "Climate change is big and complex, but that means there are hundreds of ways to contribute. Whether it's a parent organizing a renewable energy fair at school, or a young professional pledging to become a Climate Reality Leader, or a student working to elect a clean energy candidate, we all have different ways and different days to contribute."

In addition to former Vice President Al Gore and Climate Reality Project President and CEO Ken Berlin, a variety of international celebrities, musicians, advocates, and other special guests will join the broadcast, including:

  • Vanessa Black, filmmaker
  • Colbie Caillat, singer-songwriter
  • Rodne Galicha, activist
  • Wanjira Mathai, environmentalist
  • Jason Mraz, singer-songwriter
  • Patrick Ngowi, entrepreneur
  • Bunker Roy, founder of the Barefoot College
  • Mark Ruffalo, actor & activist
  • Ian Somerhalder, actor & model
  • Johan van der Berg
  • Daniela Velasco

Representatives from:

  • Truman Project
  • The Global Alliance for Clean Cookstoves
  • The Green Belt Movement
  • The Land Institute
  • Solar Sister
  • Interfaith Power and Light

The broadcast will be produced by Control Room, with supporting media efforts by Participant Media's television network, Pivot, and TakePart.com.

Groundbreaking Report Commissioned by Born Free USA Uncovers Ivory Supply Chain from Poached African Elephants to Markets in Asia

- "Chinese traffickers are present in virtually every African range state, and operate at nearly every point along the ivory supply chain," according to new report

WASHINGTON, Aug. 27, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, Born Free USA and C4ADS released a groundbreaking report, Out of Africa: Mapping the Global Trade in Illicit Elephant Ivory, which focuses on the ivory supply chain and the trafficking of ivory from the bush in Africa to retail markets tens of thousands of miles away in Asia. This information comes four months after the groups' shocking report, Ivory's Curse: The Militarization and Professionalization of Poaching in Africa, which detailed the poaching crisis and its links to violent militias, organized crime, and government corruption. View the full report at www.bornfreeusa.org/OutOfAfrica

According to Adam M. Roberts, CEO of Born Free USA, "The ivory trade is operating today at the highest level since the 1989 commercial ivory trade ban. Our investigation reveals that between 2009 and June 2014, there were more than 90 large-scale ivory seizures, collectively weighing almost 170 tons that bear the hallmarks of international organized crime. This would amount to approximately 229,729 elephants killed and trafficked in fewer than six years."

"It is well known that East Asian nationals, and, in particular, the Chinese, drive the modern ivory trade. However, the scale we found in our investigation was shocking; Chinese traffickers are present in virtually every single African range state, and operate at nearly every point along the ivory supply chain," Roberts explains.  

Varun Vira, Chief of Analysis at C4ADS and co-author of the report commissioned by Born Free USA, said, "The ivory trade is worth billions of dollars but is still talked about as if it were an unprofessional, disorganized, and artisanal industry, of concern only to conservationists. In reality, it is a highly organized, complex global crime that has avoided consequence for decades. However, our report reveals that there may be as few as 100 large-scale ivory containers moving annually that drive the vast majority of the entire illegal trade. Focusing efforts on intercepting these containers and tracing back their owners and facilitators can have a real impact on the trade." 

Out of Africa provides a detailed examination of the illicit ivory supply chain, including: 

  • Illegal ivory flows primarily in containers through the international shipping system. At least 100 containers may be moving annually, the majority through a small number of chokepoints.
  • A large majority of all of the illegal ivory is accounted for within a small number of transactions; through a small number of ports and airports; and to a small number of criminal networks.
  • Just the three ports of Mombasa, Dar es Salaam, and Zanzibar in Kenya and Tanzania exit the majority of shipments, pointing to the need for more carefully-targeted enforcement efforts.
  • The top three airports in the chain are in Nairobi, Addis Ababa, and Johannesburg.
  • Traffickers able to operate from the forest to the market can earn more than 2,500% in profit margins.
  • Ivory and wildlife trafficking networks operate within a networked black market that has a high degree of convergence with other forms of organized crime activity. Ivory traffickers do not necessarily run guns or narcotics themselves, but they rely on -- and help enrich -- facilitators who are interwoven into the systems that enable terrorist financing, drugs, weapons, and human trafficking.

Roberts adds, "The greatest challenge to combat the wildlife trade is a lack of adequate information on how the trade functions. Our report seeks to bridge that gap, providing actionable insights, and replicable and scalable processes, to help mobilize tangible action for the policy, intelligence, and law enforcement communities." 

The Born Free USA team has focused on wildlife trafficking for more than two decades, and advocated vociferously for the 1989 Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES) uplisting of African elephants to Appendix I, thus shutting down the commercial international trade in elephant ivory. The organization maintains a global wildlife trade program and is at the forefront of campaigns to protect imperiled species, including from the trade in elephant ivory, rhino horn, tiger bone, lion trophies, and bear gallbladders.

Through litigation, legislation, and public education, Born Free USA leads vital campaigns against animals in entertainment, exotic "pets," trapping and fur, and the destructive international wildlife trade. Born Free USA brings to North America the message of "compassionate conservation" -- the vision of the U.K.-based Born Free Foundation, established in 1984 by Bill Travers and Virginia McKenna, stars of the iconic film "Born Free," along with their son Will Travers. Born Free's mission is to end suffering of wild animals in captivity, conserve threatened and endangered species, and encourage compassionate conservation globally.

The Controlled Release Society is an international, interdisciplinary, not-for-profit organization whose guiding purpose is the advancement of delivery science and technology. CRS is the home for experts dedicated to the science of delivery, including delivery scientists, engineers, clinicians, and technical professionals. The primary interest of about 70% of the CRS membership is in the pharmaceutical area (including ~18% animal health) and 30% in the non-pharmaceutical areas (called consumer and diversified products).

Dr. Tipton has worked in the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries for more than 25 years.  During that time, he has pioneered the use of controlled release technologies through his work in polymer science and engineering.

"It is an honor to be named president of the Controlled Release Society," said Dr. Tipton.  "Over the past several decades, controlled release formulations have changed the treatment paradigm for a number of serious health conditions, including cancer, pain management, cardiovascular and central nervous system disorders, and have been involved in many industrial applications such as food flavorings and long acting fertilizers.  As controlled release technologies continue to mature, industry and academia are meeting the challenges of developing the next generation of faster, safer, more accessible formulations, and CRS represents the world's leaders in advancing these novel techniques.  I look forward to leading this distinguished and important group."

Previously Dr. Tipton held senior positions at Durect Corporation, its wholly-owned subsidiary Southern BioSystems, Birmingham Polymers, and Atrix Laboratories.  In 2005, he founded Brookwood Pharmaceuticals, which was subsequently acquired by SurModics and later by Evonik.  At Evonik, he served as senior vice president of the Birmingham Division and also led the company's global drug delivery program.  Dr Tipton has 31 issued U.S. patents, 22 published U.S. patent applications, and numerous foreign equivalents, with more than 70 presentations and publications.

He is a fellow of AIMBE and CRS and was awarded the CRS Distinguished Service Award in 2012. He serves as an external advisor to the Biomedical Engineering Department at the University of Alabama at Birmingham, and volunteers as a mentor and judge in business plan competitions.  His election as president of CRS marks the first time in the organization's 36 year history that it has been led by two individuals of the same organization.  Danny H. Lewis, Ph.D., former Head, Biosystems Division for Southern Research Institute, served as president of CRS for the 1982-1983 term.

In his role as president of the Controlled Release Society, Dr. Tipton will continue to serve on the CRS Board of Directors as well as the boards of the Birmingham Venture Club, the Economic Development Partnership of Alabama Foundation, the Biotech Association of Alabama, and as a member of the Alabama Workforce Council spearheaded by Governor Robert Bentley.

Dr. Tipton earned a Ph.D. in Polymer Science and Engineering from the University of Massachusetts in Amherst, and a B.S. in Chemistry from Spring Hill College.
