Originally published on The Climate Reality Project.

Today The Climate Reality Project announced that the 24 Hours of Reality: The Road Forward broadcast will include Moby, Jay Park, Esperanza Spalding, Joss Stone, Steve Carell, Bryan Cranston, Thomas Middleditch, Danai Gurira, Troian Bellisario, James Blunt, and Tom Chaplin. The artists joined a previously-announced line-up of climate experts, activists, celebrities, and musicians that includes — among others — Ryan Reynolds, Jon Bon Jovi, Carole King, Vance Joy, and Thirty Seconds to Mars.

The sixth-annual 24-hour live event — produced by ShoulderHill Entertainment — begins at 6:00 p.m. EST on December 5 and will be available in more than 100 countries to more than 225 million households through Climate Reality’s network broadcast partners, and to additional hundreds of millions of viewers online through Livestream.

This year’s show focuses one hour on each of the world’s 24 largest CO2-emitting countries, featuring performances, educational segments, appearances by experts and activists, and live commentary by former US Vice President Al Gore and others — all focused on how each country can do its part to make the goals of the Paris Agreement a reality.
