Off and On: The Climate Movement And The Road Through Paris

Thursday, Sep 10, 2015

After many years of talking about climate change, we're finally at a point where the world is making our task simple. Not easy, but simple. The scientists are telling us we must, in this hottest year on record, turn off the flow of carbon. The engineers are telling us that we are ready to turn on the abundant flow of sun and wind. And any sense of justice is telling us we must flip the switch now. Join us for an evening that will help set the stage for this dramatic season of climate action that will lead straight through the big United Nations climate conference this December in Paris and beyond. It's not that complicated. It's off and on.

Join Bill McKibben -; Naomi Klein - This Changes Everything; Reverend Lennox Yearwood - Hip Hop Caucus; Cynthia Ong - LEAP - Borneo; Eddie Bautista - NY Environmental Justice Alliance, and other social movement leaders from across the globe, including: Tomás Insua, co-founder of the Global Catholic Climate Movement; Thilmeeza Hussain, founder of Voice of Women, which addresses women and climate change in the Maldives; Juan Flores, community organizer in Delano, California with the Center for Race, Poverty and the Environment; & Antonique Smith, an American Broadway, film/television actress, and a Grammy nominated singer and songwriter

Through a riveting multimedia presentation, they'll outline the depths of our current peril -- and unveil a plan for how we can pull humanity back from the brink of catastrophe.
