“Years of Living Dangerously” climate change docu-series to be shown April 3-6

Members of the campus and greater community can join the climate change conversation with the executive producers and co-creators of the National Geographic Channel’s Emmy-award winning climate change documentary series, “Years of Living Dangerously,” on Thursday, April 6, in Palmer Auditorium from 7-9 p.m.

The event, which is free and open to the public, begins with a 7 p.m. screening of “Years of Living Dangerously: Priceless,” followed by an engaging and interactive conversation with producers Joel Bach and David Gelber.

The series provides first-hand reports by a team of correspondents from the entertainment and news industries who travel around the world interviewing scientists and experts and covering those directly affected by and seeking solutions to climate change.

In the days preceding the April 6 event, additional episodes of the series will be screened at 7 p.m. in Silfen Auditorium, Bill Hall 106: Monday, April 3, Gathering Storm; Tuesday, April 4, A Race Against Time; Wednesday, April 5, Collapse of the Oceans.

In conjunction with this climate change awareness event, a petition is being circulated on campus to ask policy-makers to “put a price on carbon” and take action to mitigate climate change.

The series is sponsored by the Linda Lear Lecture Fund of The Goodwin-Niering Center for the Environment and the Environmental Studies Program.
