National Public Radio reported last week that human activities are the dominant causes of global warming based on the Climate Science Special Report recently submitted to the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy. This report is congressionally mandated and is considered to be the nation’s most authoritative climate science assessment compiled by academic and governmental science experts. These findings have far-reaching implication on environmental and economic policy, human rights, quality of life, and health of the planet going forward.
This recent news is a timely backdrop for the upcoming Falmouth Academy Community Series screening of the film An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power followed by an expert panel of climate scientists on Thursday, November 30 at 6:00 pm in the Simon Center for the Arts at Falmouth Academy. There is a brief reception before the show starting at 5:30 pm.
An Inconvenient Sequel shows the tireless efforts around the globe of environmental stewards led by former Vice President Al Gore as they work to implement and advocate for sustainability and international climate policy reform. This sequel comes ten years after the release of the Oscar-winning ground-breaking film, An Inconvenient Truth.
Woods Hole Research Center is ranked the #1 climate change think tank, and Falmouth Academy is pleased to welcome its President and Executive Director Dr. Phil Duffy and Deputy Director and Senior Scientist Dr. Robert Max Holmes to a panel discussion with Dr. Heather Goldstone, WGBH science editor following the film. They will answer questions about the causes and effects of climate change.
The event is co-sponsored by the Woods Hole Research Center and partially funded by the Woods Hole Foundation. Admission is free, but reservations are required. For reservations or more information, please call 508-457-9696 or reserve online at falmouthacademy.org.
