Special presentation of "An Inconvenient Sequel' will feature climate change panel at Admiral Theater
The beginning of the run of An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power Al Gore’s follow up to his 2008 pivotal movie on climate change An Inconvenient Truth is Friday August 11 at the Admiral Theater.A decade ago, An Inconvenient Truth brought climate change into the heart of popular culture. Gore’s follow-up sequel shows just how close we are to a real energy revolution. From director Davis Guggenheim, An Inconvenient Sequel, offers a passionate and inspirational look at one man's commitment to expose the myths and misconceptions that surround global warming and inspire actions to prevent it.
The movie will normally screen at 7PM, but Friday starts at 6:30 pm so that immediately following an informative Q&A panel of experts will answer questions and educate the public what they can do about climate change.
The evening will be hosted by Washington Women for Climate Action Now! . This summer, WashingtonWomenCAN partnered with Al Gore’s Climate Reality Project to train women across our state to speak eloquently and confidently on the urgent need for powerful climate action. Climate change affects us all, but the impacts and solutions often depend on where we live. This partnership has empowered more than 50 Washington women to speak out in their own communities across our state and to lead us to a clean energy future.
The panel will feature Heidi Roop, a climate scientist with a passion for science and communication. She is currently the Strategic Communications Lead for the UW Climate Impacts Group. Heidi's professional mission is to improve the reach and impact of climate science in order to engage, motivate and catalyze action around climate change.
Additional panelists will be added during the week and hopefully throughout the run of the movie there will be additional opportunities for more speakers and Q&A panel’s.
