October 7 – Three Short Films

For this Sunday, we will view three short films with the central issues of climate change and clean water.

Anthropocene

In the midst of the climate change debate, Anthropocene examines the crisis facing our planet from a fresh perspective not often considered by the mainstream. It’s a valuable reminder that the human footprint could ultimately prove more devastating to our planet than Mother Nature herself.

Donald Trump, the Koch Brothers and their War on Climate Science

Our planet is riddled with floods, rising sea levels, severe weather, drought, and the highest temperatures in recorded history. Up to 99% of climate scientists agree that the current trajectory of the climate crisis will lead us to an apocalyptic scenario of unimaginable proportions. Narrated by acclaimed actor and activist Danny Glover, the film examines threats to the climate change movement in the age of President Donald Trump.
