(Curious that this happens on the anniversary of Climategate…. h/t to Joe D’aleo )
Al Gore will host a live interactive online town hall called Math, Science and the Future of Our Nation today at noon. (12PM EST, 9AM PST)
The town hall will connect young people from the US with students from around the world, and with internationally known science and technology leaders including inventor Dean Kamen and astronaut Sally Ride. The discussion will focus on attitudes among American youth toward math and science, and how to inspire and motivate them so they will be successful in a competitive global marketplace.
This unique event is part of Connect a Million Minds (CAMM), TWC’s philanthropic commitment to connect youth to ideas, people and opportunities that will inspire them to pursue education and careers in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM).
“In today’s increasingly global economy, America cannot afford to continue to fall behind the world in the very subjects that are going to drive economic growth and development in the coming decades,” said Gore, who is appearing courtesy of Current TV, where he serves as Chairman. “By creating a dialogue that includes not only experts on the subject matter, but the kids who are ultimately affected by this issue, Time Warner Cable’s Global Online Town Hall is likely to provide tremendous insights into the issue and provide a jumping off point for action.”
Members of the public can join the town hall at connectamillionminds.com where — using a new online broadcasting platform from Vokle – they can submit live video questions and comments from anywhere in the world in real time.
