Confirmed. Maggie L. Fox is on the out at Gore’s CRP. Here is the “resignation” letter sent to the mailing list. Name of recipient redacted.
As a member of the Climate Reality family, I wanted to share with you some recent personal news.
I was honored to join The Alliance for Climate Protection’s efforts to fight for comprehensive climate legislation five years ago. And thrilled to then lead the organization through an important transformation to The Climate Reality Project. Faced with the realization that the well-funded and pervasive climate denial industry was winning the broader cultural battle, The Climate Reality Project took up the mantle to dispel doubt and spread the immediate reality of climate change with innovative organizing and communication initiatives designed to transform the cultural conversation. This spring, after an exceptional tenure at the helm of this burgeoning organization, I will be stepping down as President and CEO.
Over the past three years, we have operated with a start-up mentality as climate entrepreneurs, calling out deniers, while also connecting the dots for individuals seeking to understand the reality of climate change and its impact on their everyday lives. We have developed global online events including the annual 24 Hours of Reality, released cutting-edge digital tools such as Reality Drop and What I Love and formed new and effective partnerships with communities affected by climate change – from winter sports lovers to mothers to young people with the critical help of tech enthusiasts and the marketing and advertising industry. We have also invested in growing and empowering a powerful group of 6000 global leaders in over 100 countries acting as change agents and members of The Climate Reality Leadership Corps.
This has been one of the most energizing and exciting portions of my career. I am inspired every day by the talent, diligence and passion our staff brings to this important work. And, I also feel it is the right time in the organization’s growth for me to help Chairman Gore and the Board find a new leader to take the cultural conversation to the next level.
I’d like to thank Chairman Gore for his incredible, visionary leadership on climate change and the Climate Reality staff and Board as well as our supporters for all that they do every day to make a difference. I am looking forward to carrying all I have learned from this fascinating journey onto creating a sustainable world that keeps faith with our children, grandchildren and all future generations.
It has been an honor and a pleasure to work alongside you. In March, I will be in Johannesburg to train another class of Climate Reality Leaders to join the Climate Reality family. I look forward to following their great work and continuing to see the impact that all of you will have towards destroying denial worldwide and finding solutions to the climate crisis.
All the best in the New Year,
Maggie L. Fox
President and CEO, The Climate Reality Project
