Boulder, CO (PRWEB) August 14, 2012
Nationwide, this is the hottest year on record to date – and leading brand engagement firm Action Marketing Group will assist The Climate Reality Project in sharing this and other facts about climate change with the public while also gathering stories about how the excessive heat is affecting people across the country.
This month, The Climate Reality Project takes to the road for two five-day stops: the first was in Austin, from Aug. 1 through Aug. 5; and the second is in Washington, D.C., from Aug. 14 through Aug. 18. For both stops, Action has crafted a campaign that aims to help people connect, share and interact through social and digital channels on topics related to climate change. Using the hashtag #ImTooHot, visitors to The Climate Reality Project’s ice cream truck will be asked to write a tweet or Facebook post explaining how they have been affected by the heat. In each city, The Climate Reality Project will give away free "climate" ice pops, gifts and information about climate change.
Many of the social media comments that are shared will be visible on a chalkboard community Twitter wall near the truck. Later, the comments that have been gathered will be posted to The Climate Reality Project’s Twitter page. Anyone outside either city also will be able to join the conversation by posting their own #ImTooHot stories to Twitter or Facebook, with a tag to their own city, state or country. As with the comments collected in Texas and the nation’s capital, many of these posts will reappear on The Climate Reality Project’s own social media channels.
More details about the campaign – as well as the current extreme weather we’re seeing – can be found on The Climate Reality Project’s blog.
