Jason Mraz Sings from My Rooftop in Support of the Climate Reality Project
It's up to all of us to speak out about climate change. And sometimes, the best way to join the conversation is to make a little music.
So Jason Mraz and I got together at my house to put together a music video for The Climate Reality Project's 24 Hours of Reality: The Dirty Weather Report. Jason sang his song, 93 Million Miles, and I talked a little about how easy and important it is to use clean energy in our lives.
If you haven't already seen our video, we'd love for you to watch!
Whether we talk about it or sing about it, we need to stand up to the anti-science deniers and have a real conversation about climate change. And that's exactly what 24 Hours of Reality did.
24 Hours of Reality focused the world's attention on both the impacts of climate change and the clean energy solutions we have at our disposal, and garnered nearly 17 million views and generated 145 million online impressions.
Each of us has his or her own story about how climate change affects them, and more importantly, each of us has a role to play in promoting solutions to the climate crisis. There are literally thousands of ways to get involved.
We were proud to be part of such a vital event. Join us. Watch our video. Check out 24 Hours of Reality—it was phenomenal!

Known as stoneflies, these aquatic bugs are similar to dragonflies and mayflies in that they spend part of their lives underwater before emerging onto the land, where they transform into winged adults less than a half inch long. However, unlike those other species, stoneflies do their thing only where cold, clean waters flow.

The year is less than four weeks old, but scientists already know that carbon dioxide emissions will continue to head upwards — as they have every year since measurements began — leading to a continuation of the Earth's rising heat.
