WHEN – Thursday, April 19th, 5:30-7:00pm
WHERE – The American Association for the Advancement of Science, 12th and H Streets, Northwest, Washington DC.
This three part documentary takes the unusual viewpoint that the issue of climate change is no longer red, blue, right, or left, and the way to solve the crisis doesn’t require political consensus in Washington. Instead, the documentary focuses on everyday Americans across the country that are taking steps towards saving money (and reducing their carbon footprint) through clean energy.
These people come from different political backgrounds, different geographies, and different occupations – often playing against their own types. An Admiral in the Pentagon who thinks climate change is a threat to national security. A cattle rancher from Texas who harnesses wind energy to save his family farm. An activist in Baltimore who uses clean energy as way to help struggling inner-city neighborhoods.
At the event on Thursday the 19th, you’ll be able to discuss clean energy and climate change with award-winning scientist Richard Alley, speak with activists and experts featured in the series, and watch clips from all three documentaries.
