May 10th    Thursday     7:00 p.m.   Double Feature Film Night

"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.  So why do so many leaders in Washington stand in direct opposition to the science behind climate change?  This 2017 documentary exposes the reasoning behind their willful ignorance, and the real power players who pull their strings. (32 minutes)

"The Breakthrough in Renewable Energy" This 2016 documentary by VPRO discusses the silent revolution that is moving across the world. Renewable energy is becoming cheaper than fossil fuels. It means that progressively the choice for wind and solar energy is no longer an ethical one but an economic one. And this will speed up the transfer to renewable energy. (46 minutes)
