The Great Disruption film screening & discussion – Carrboro

June 25, 2017 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

It’s time to stop just worrying about climate change, says Paul Gilding. We need instead to brace for impact because global crisis is no longer avoidable. This Great Disruption started in 2008, with spiking food and oil prices and dramatic ecological changes, such as the melting ice caps. It is not simply about fossil fuels and carbon footprints. We have come to the end of Economic Growth, Version 1.0, a world economy based on consumption and waste, where we lived beyond the means of our planet’s ecosystems and resources.

The Great Disruption, by Paul Gilding offers a stark and unflinching look at the challenge humanity faces-yet also a deeply optimistic message. The coming decades will see loss, suffering, and conflict as our planetary overdraft is paid; however, they will also bring out the best humanity can offer: compassion, innovation, resilience, and adaptability. Gilding tells us how to fight-and win-what he calls The One Degree War to prevent catastrophic warming of the earth, and how to start today.

Join us for a different video each meeting, and find a supportive group to explore possibilities to address our climate disruption.

Presented by Citizens Climate Collaborative: Betsey Downing, Marty Adams, Tana Hartman Thorn, Vic Rhodes, & Dirk Kelder
