It’s a Hallowe’en horror show! We take a look at films that are nothing short of scary and invite attendees to win prizes for the best climate villain costume, climate hero costume, or endangered species costume. The roster of films includes:
The Last Hours of Humanity: Warming the World to Extinction – Thom Hartmann explores the perils of climate change and the solutions to avert climate disaster.
Carbon – Another important film from Green World Rising, Carbon focuses on the impact of the fossil fuel industry with the aim of generating momentum for the global reduction of carbon emissions.
Wake Up, Freak Out and Get a Grip – An animated film by Leo Murray, Wake Up is about the feedback loops that will likely to lead to catastrophic climate change.
Discussion Focus: How can we take meaningful action locally to avert climate collapse? Upon completion of the viewing and discussion, attendees are invited to stay for a Hallowe’en bash where guest judges will award prizes to the best costumes. We will close with a positive future vision.
