Mt. Baker Meaningful Movies presents an evening of information and action! We will be showing two short films, "The Story of Climate Change" and "Solutions to Climate Change", for a science update. (Release date: April 2017.) The films feature: *Mustapha Ali (former Chief Environmental Justice Official at the EPA), *Bill McKibben (from http://350.org, Schumann Distinguished Scholar at Middleburg College, Author and winner of the Ghandi Peace Award), *Jim Hansen, (generally considered the world's leading climate scientist, formerly head of the NASA Goddard Inst. for Space Studies), *Katharine Hayhoe (Director of the Climate Science Center at Texas Tech. University), *Maggie Gyllenhaal, (Actor and Activist), and others who provide updates on the science and solutions to climate change. The second part of the evening is a presentation from the ALLIANCE FOR JOBS AND CLEAN ENERGY, a broad, diverse, statewide coalition dedicated to reducing climate change, and promoting climate justice. We will hear about the campaign to PUT A PRICE ON CARBON by placing an initiative on the 2018 ballot. We'll have an opportunity to listen, ask questions, discuss, and learn how we each can make a big difference in reducing greenhouse gas emissions (with justice) in Washington State. LET’S DO THIS! PUT A PRICE ON CARBON IN WASHINGTON, DECREASE GREENHOUSE GAS EMISSIONS, GROW OUR ECONOMY WITH JUSTICE, CREATE GOOD JOBS, AND IMPROVE HEALTH! Special Guests: Ahmed Gaya - Alliance for Jobs and Clean Energy Field Director Co-Sponsors: Alliance for Jobs and Clean Energy, Mt Baker Community Club, South Seattle Climate Action Network, Sierra Club and others
