The ACC Clean Energy Challenge officially launches on December 2nd.   To celebrate this, the University of Maryland will hold a campus kick-off event featuring "An Inconvenient Truth" presentation from Al Gore's Climate Reality Project by Peter Kelley.

In 2007, Al Gore won the Nobel Peace Prize for significantly raising awareness of global warming and man-made climate change and why energy efficiency and renewable/clean energy sources are so critical to this planet’s future.   Gore’s movie “An Inconvenient Truth” and related Climate Reality Project played a central role in those efforts, which makes both very compelling to include in the kickoff of the ACC Clean Energy Challenge
