Demystifying the Science of Climate Change Film Presentation

In Calendar, Education, Green Elbertians on March 21, 2013 at 9:29 am

It’s OK to admit it: You just don’t know whether climate change is actually happening and if it is, whether and how it’s going to affect you. On April 17, just ahead of Earth Day, join nationally known filmmaker Peter Sinclair for CLIMATE CHANGE 2013: Demystifying the Science, a presentation at the Garden Theatre. The talk is co-sponsored by NMCAC, the Benzie League of Women Voters, Friends of Betsie Bay, the Benzie Community Water Council, and the May Farm.

For the last 5 years, Peter Sinclair has been challenging the world’s leading climate scientists to explain their research in terms nonexperts can understand. His YouTube series “Climate Denial Crock of the Week” deftly corrects climate misinformation, and has become “must viewing” for students, policy-makers, and citizens around the globe. He now produces a companion series for the Yale Forum on Climate Change and the Media, entitled This Is Not Cool.

Mr. Sinclair’s rich visuals and clear explanations make clear the complexities of the most important challenge civilization has ever faced, and show the way forward.

Wednesday, April 17, from 7 pm to 8:30 pm.  $5 suggested donation. Doors open at 6:30 pm.
