World Premiere of Global Warming Documentary “The Great Warming”

Posted in other groups and events at 12:56 pm by cuenv-main

The World Premiere of the documentary “The Great Warming” is Thursday 3/23 at 7 PM at the Ziegfeld Theatre (141 West 54th St bet. 6th & 7th Aves):

Early reviews have called it “the best film about global warming ever produced”. Narrated by Alanis Morissette and Keanu Reeves, The Great Warming sweeps around the world to reveal how a changing climate is affecting the lives of people everywhere.

The Great Warming includes statements from scientists and opinion-leaders as well as a blunt assessment of America’s leadership, or lack of it, in what is the most critical environmental issue of the 21st century. The film examines evidence that human activities are provoking an unprecedented era of atmospheric warming and climatic events: more drought, wildfires and flooding, polar melting, more powerful storms and more variable weather. The Great Warming also showcases initiatives aimed at reversing the trend toward permanent damage to our planet, as well as scenes documenting the emerging voice of America’s Evangelical community urging action on climate change from pulpits across the country.

The screening will be followed by a panel discussion.

Seats are limited; RSVP here.
