In observance of the upcoming Peoples’ Climate March in New York City, the Montclair Office of Environmental Affairs and Community Green are excited to present “Disruption” — an important, just-released movie on the climate crisis for their Green Film Series on Thursday, September 18, 6:30 p.m. at the Montclair Public Library, 50 South Fullerton Avenue, 07042. An open public discussion will follow the screening. All events at the Library are free.
“When it comes to climate change, why do we do so little…when we know so much?”
By documenting a relentless investigation to find the answer to that question, “Disruption” – a new film on the science, the stories, and the solutions of the climate crisis – takes an unflinching look at the devastating consequences of our inaction. The film debuted nationally earlier this month.
This fast-paced, one-hour movie lays bare the terrifying science, the shattered political process, the unrelenting industry special interests, and the civic stasis that have brought us to this social, moral and ecological crossroads.
It also takes us behind-the-scenes of the efforts to organize the largest climate rally in history during the UN world climate summit – The Peoples’ Climate March in New York City – just a few days away.
This is the story of our unique moment in history; we are living through an age of tipping points and rapid social and planetary change. Climate disruption is not an environmental issue – it’s a social justice movement.
We are the first generation to feel the impacts of climate disruption, and the last generation that can do something about it.
“Disruption” enlarges the issue beyond climate impacts, and makes a compelling call for bold action that is strong enough to tip the balance to build a clean energy future.
Please join us, and bring a friend, a family member, or your neighbor to the film screening and the open discussion afterwards, to hear the story of our time.
