What: Join us for a special screening of An Inconvenient Truth
Join GreenHome NYC and Solar One for opening day of An Inconvenient Truth, a documentary describing the science behind climate change as well as Al Goreâ€™s work to spread the knowledge. The movie is a great opportunity to enhance your understanding of the science behind global warming. A great showing for opening week will ensure a wider national distribution of the movie. In other words, the more folks who see the movie in NYC, the greater the nationwide distribution will be.
According to Al Goreâ€™s website, climatecrisis.net:
â€œDirector Davis Guggenheim eloquently weaves the science of global warming with Mr. Gore’s personal history and lifelong commitment to reversing the effects of global climate change. A longtime advocate for the environment, Gore presents a wide array of facts and information in a thoughtful and compelling way. “Al Gore strips his presentations of politics, laying out the facts for the audience to draw their own conclusions in a charming, funny and engaging style, and by the end has everyone on the edge of their seats, gripped by his haunting message,” said Guggenheim. An Inconvenient Truth is not a story of despair but rather a rallying cry to protect the one earth we all share. â€œIt is now clear that we face a deepening global climate crisis that requires us to act boldly, quickly, and wisely,â€ said Gore.
