We are following up on Wall-E with our next movie: Carbon Nation. We will
have pizza (for $1 a slice), free snacks, and popcorn at 6 in the D
courtyard. The movie will be at 6:30pm in D207.
"An optimistic (and witty) discovery of what people are already doing, what
we as a nation could be doing and what the world needs to do to prevent (or
at least slow down) the impending climate crisis." Summary from:
"Carbon Nation is a documentary movie about climate change SOLUTIONS. Even
if you doubt the severity of the impact of climate change or just don't buy
it at all, this is still a compelling and relevant film that illustrates how
SOLUTIONS to climate change also address other social, economic and national
security issues. You'll meet a host of entertaining and endearing characters
along the way." Summary from: <http://www.carbonnationmovie.com/about>
Have a great week!
