MT. BAKER MEANINGFUL MOVIES presents an evening of information and action! We will be showing two short films, The Story of Climate Change and Solutions to Climate Change (released in April 2017), and a speaker from the Alliance for Jobs and Clean Energy.
The films feature Bill McKibben from http://350.org, Jim Hansen (considered the world’s foremost climate scientist, formerly at NASA), Katharine Hayhoe (Director of the Climate Science Center at Texas Tech. University, Mustapha Ali (former Chief Environmental Justice Official at EPA), Maggie Gyllenhaal (actor and activist), and others who provide updates on the science and today’s solutions to climate change.
After the films, a speaker from the Alliance for Jobs and Clean Energy will be talking about putting an initiative on the ballot in November 2018, that will put a price on carbon pollution in Washington State, invest in clean energy solutions, and that will invest in the communities hardest hit by climate change.
Extreme weather events across our country and the world urge us to take climate action now.
The Alliance is a broad, statewide coalition of tribal organizations; other communities of color; labor; environmental, business, faith, health, education, parents organizations; and individuals working together make a difference for ourselves and future generations… and have fun doing it! This project and will take all of us collecting petition signatures and campaigning to win!
Come to listen, ask questions and discuss how we can all contribute to this fair and equitable climate action.
