The surge in recent years of extreme weather events linked to climate change is unprecedented in our lifetime. Canadian filmmaker Melanie Wood captures this alarming trend in her important new documentary, Weather Gone Wild, this month’s Conscientious Projector feature screening on Thursday, September 10, 7:00 p.m. at Armory Center for the Arts. The Dreamfilm Productions project for CBC-TV visits various cities around the world to highlight the many vital and winning efforts to adapt to the damage that climate change has already wrought and to prepare for destructive patterns yet to come. The program will also include two short films on the work of Citizens Climate Lobby, a national grassroots advocacy organization, which has made significant inroads in legislation, activism and education to effect change and raise public awareness on climate realities.
Robert Haw of the Pasadena-Foothills CCL chapter facilitates a community discussion following the films. Other local climate scientists and activists dedicated to making significant climate policy change will also be in attendance. The Armory is located at 145 N. Raymond in Old Pasadena. Admission is free and the facility is accessible to disabled persons.
