Climate webcast from Paris suspended after deadly attacks

Posted:

A Paris webcast of an all-star marathon event about climate change was suspended after the deadly attacks in that city Friday night.


   A statement for 24 Hours of Realty and Live Earth said it was suspending the event out of solidarity with the people and city of Paris, and expressed condolences.


   At least 135 people have been killed in a series of shootings and explosions across the city.


   Former U.S. Vice President Al Gore was due to host the live webcast from the foot of the Eiffel Tower to drum up attention for this month's international climate summit in Paris.


   Besides Gore, the broadcast was to feature musical performances by Elton John, Duran Duran and others. Other concerts were to be broadcast from locations around the globe, from Rio de Janeiro to Miami, Sydney and Cape Town.
