The Great Warming at Village East Cinema

Posted in other groups and events at 9:53 am by cuenv-main

The Great Warming will be showing at Village East Cinema (in the East Village) from Friday 4/7 to Thursday 4/13.

The Great Warming sweeps around the world to reveal how a changing climate is affecting the lives of people everywhere.

The film 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.

Filmed in the USA, China, Europe and South America, this wide-ranging, compelling film taps into the growing groundswell of public concern about climate change to present an emotional, accurate picture of our children’s planet.

The Village East is located at 181-189 2nd Avenue (at 12th St). Adult tickets are $10.75 online.
