"Plan B" tomorrow!
Happy New Year everyone!
We hope you can join us this Friday, January 4th at 6:30pm for "Plan B: Mobilizing to Save Civilization" at the American Memorial Park theatre. The film is part of the public television series Journey to Planet Earth.
Hosted by Matt Damon and produced by Emmy-Award winning filmmakers Marilyn and Hal Weiner,"Plan B: Mobilizing To Save Civilization" is a PBS documentary based on the book by environmental visionary Lester Brown. Featuring some of the world's most original and influential thinkers, Lester Brown's message is clear and unflinching — either confront the realities of climate change or suffer the consequences of lost civilizations and failed states. Ultimately "Plan B" provides audiences with a glimpse into a new and emerging economy based upon renewable sources plus realistic strategies to avoid the growing threat of global warming. The film presents what will happen if we choose plan A -- "business as usual", and recommends plan B, confronting global environmental problems, as an alternative.
First Friday Films is a partnership between DEQ and American Memorial Park with support from other public and private organizations. This particular film is sponsored by the Humanities Council. As always, our film events are free and open to the public. For planning purposes, this film runs for approximately 80 minutes.
We'd like to encourage you to consider the environment in your New Year's Resolution this year! Commit to making a small environmental change in your life during 2013 -- recycling your aluminum, walking or biking instead of driving once a week, turning off your aircon, or participating in monthly beach clean-ups. It's not to late to make a commitment for 2013!
