Participant Media, Paramount Home Media Distribution and Google announced today that former Vice President Al Gore, chairman of The Climate Reality Project, and Participant Media Chairman and Founder Jeff Skoll will host a Google+ Conversation on the climate crisis to celebrate the seventh anniversary of the Academy Award-winning documentary An Inconvenient Truth.

In a brief YouTube video released today, Vice President Gore invited people to join the Science on G+ Community and share ideas to mitigate climate change. Over the next week Gore and Skoll will engage with Google+ users on the topic and ultimately will select the five most insightful Community members to join them in a live Google+ Hangout on Air on June 11th at 2PM EDT / 11AM PDT.

To celebrate the film’s seventh anniversary, An Inconvenient Truth is also now available for 99 cents on Google Play, allowing a new generation of digital viewers to join the global dialogue. Participant’s digital network, TakePart.com, will also run a special five-part editorial series on climate change that will dive deeper into the issue and its evolution beginning June 10 at takepart.com/an-inconvenient-truth. As part of the series, TakePart has also teamed with The Climate Reality Project to recommend ten climate crisis actions people can take.

This Google+ Hangout on Air is the former Vice President’s first and kicks off Google+ Conversations, a new series on Google+ where everyday users have the opportunity to engage global experts in discussions on the issues that matter to them.
