"Before the Flood" Screening at First Congregational Church of San Jose
At 11:30 AM, Sunday, November 20th, the First Congregational Church of San Jose, located at 1980 Hamilton Avenue, San Jose 95125-5638 (corner of Leigh and Hamilton Avenues), will be co-hosting a climate change event with California Interfaith Power & Light (The Regeneration Project) regarding the future of the United Nations Paris Climate Change Agreement. This will include a showing of Leonardo DiCaprio’s 90-minute documentary “Before the Flood.”
Here is a description of this highly acclaimed documentary:
Before the Flood presents a riveting account of the dramatic changes now occurring around the world due to climate change, as well as the actions we as individuals and as a society can take to prevent catastrophic disruption of life on our planet. The film follows DiCaprio as he travels to five continents and the Arctic speaking to scientists, world leaders, activists and local residents to gain a deeper understanding of this complex issue and investigate concrete solutions to the most pressing environmental challenge of our time."
And here’s a note from former Sierra Club chapter director John Cordes: "if you want to understand why we need to re-double our efforts in fighting climate change, all you'll need to do is see the countless comments decrying Climate Change as being a hoax.”
Moderating this event will be Susan Stephenson, Executive Director, the Regeneration Project, and Keith Casto, an energy and environmental attorney and member of the congregation, both of whom attended the Paris Conference.
