Do The Math Movie Screening

May 28, 2014 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

This amazing film was created by 350.org to address the climate crisis. Steve and his wife have been working to screen this film throughout town many times over the last few months. If you haven’t seen it yet, this is worth going to!

Here is more info from the website:

We’re jumpstarting a new movement, and we need your help.

It’s simple math: we can emit 565 more gigatons of carbon dioxide and stay below 2°C of warming — anything more than that risks catastrophe for life on earth. The only problem? Burning the fossil fuel that corporations now have in their reserves would result in emitting 2,795 gigatons of carbon dioxide – five times the safe amount.

Fossil fuel companies are planning to burn it all — unless we rise up to stop them. In November 2012, Bill McKibben and 350.org hit the road to build a movement strong enough to change the terrifying math of the climate crisis. The Do the Math Tour was a massive success, with sold out shows in every corner of the country.

The USA tour is now over, but the campaign it launched is just getting started and the tour has gone global.
