Al Gore in Paris: Broadcasting from Eiffel Tower as France Paris Attack Rages

PARIS (AP) — Former U.S. Vice President Al Gore is hosting a 24-hour live webcast from the foot of the Eiffel Tower to drum up attention for this month’s international climate summit in Paris.

Gore, who helped negotiate the 1997 climate treaty that failed to control global warming, will host the round-the-clock event that includes musical performances by Elton John, Duran Duran and others. Other concerts will be broadcast from locations around the globe, from Rio de Janeiro to Miami, Sydney and Cape Town.

Gore’s aim is to raise awareness about global warming a few weeks before world leaders gather for the COP 21 Paris climate summit opening Nov. 30.

French President Francois Hollande and former U.N. Secretary-General Kofi Annan are among other officials scheduled to take part in the event.
