The Cape Cod Climate Change Collaborative and Woodwell Climate Research Center in association with the Chatham Climate Action Network are pleased to invite you to attend a screening of the internationally acclaimed film Earth Emergency at the Orpheum Theater in Chatham on Thursday, December 8, 2022 at 7:00 PM.
Earth Emergency is a revealing and accessible one-hour film that examines how human activity is creating self-perpetuating “feedback loops” that are amplifying and accelerating climate change. Narrated by actor Richard Gere and featuring spiritual leader the Dalai Lama and climate activist Greta Thunberg, the film explains how warming caused by human activity is setting in motion Earth’s own natural warming mechanisms, releasing additional greenhouse gasses into the atmosphere, and further heating up the planet.
Earth Emergency’s captivating illustrations, stunning footage, and interviews with Woodwell scientists who were instrumental in the creation and production of the film illustrate how human activity is setting off the dangerous warming loops that are pushing the climate to a point of no return – and what we need to do to stop them.
This extraordinary film will be preceded by a 6:30 PM theater lobby reception featuring the filmmaker Bonnie Waltch, Woodwell scientists, and climate organization representatives. The film will be followed by a live panel discussion and audience Q&A moderated by Heather Goldstone, chief communications officer for Woodwell. Panelists include Walch, internationally acclaimed climate scientists from Woodwell, and representatives of the Cape Cod Climate Change Collaborative and Chatham Climate Action Network.
Tickets for the Dec. 8 event may be purchased online at http://capecodclimate.org/earth-emergency or at the theater located at 637 Main Street, Chatham. Proceeds will benefit the nonprofit Cape Cod Climate Change Collaborative.
