The Politico reported:
Al Gore’s 24-hour “Live Earth” climate change webcast, which launched this afternoon from Paris’ Eiffel Tower, has been suspended because of the attacks in the French capital.
“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 U.N. global warming summit that will begin Nov. 30 in Paris, had already featured a musical performance from Duran Duran. Additional segments were slated to continue through Friday night and into Saturday in eight other cities around the world, including Miami, Beijing and Delhi.
