State of the marketplace & brand's business
Due to Al Gore's involvement, the Climate Reality brand has relatively high awareness, but their ability to have a daily impact on people is minimal. Their branded communications are often seen as biased and therefore not entirely reliable. They can't out spend their adversaries (see the Koch brothers), so they're left with doing stunts, events and short-lived campaigns rather than generating the sustained movement they need in order to further their agenda.
