Al Gore suspends Eiffel Tower climate event
14 November 2015, Nirapad News: Al Gore’s 24-hour “Live Earth” climate change webcast, which was launched from Eiffel Tower, has been suspended because of the attacks in Paris.
“Out of solidarity with the French people and the City of Paris, we have decided to suspend our broadcast of 24 Hours of Reality and Live Earth,” the former vice president said in a statement. “Our thoughts are with all who have been affected and the entire nation of France. We send our condolences to the families of those who have been killed or injured.”
The Gore-led event, timed ahead of a major UN global warming summit that will begin November 30 in Paris, had already featured a musical performance from Duran Duran.
The United Nations, which is hosting the talks, deplored the attacks in the statement. But it has not yet said anything about the attacks’ impact on the negations.
