“The Climate Project,” the updated, first sequel to the award-winning “An Inconvenient Truth” slide show and documentary, will be presented at 7:00 p.m. on Sunday, November 20 at the Evanston Ecology Center, 2024 McCormick Blvd., Evanston. The public is invited to explore the newest data and predictions of the scientific community, along with updated solutions needed to avoid climatic crisis.
The presentation will be given by Kent Taylor, noted environmentalist, scuba diver, Shedd Aquarium lecturer, and one of Al Gore’s highly-trained presenters. The Climate Project is presented by two of Evanston’s most active environmental groups, the Evanston Environmental Association (EEA) and the Green Sanctuary Committee of the Unitarian Church of Evanston.Admission is free.
According to Green Sanctuary Committee Chairman, Dick Whitaker, “Giving members of the community the opportunity to hear about the most recent scientific evidence on climate change, as well as the latest climatic impacts around the world, helps all of us re-focus our efforts on reducing our personal carbon footprints.”
Fred Schneider, President of the Evanston Environmental Association, adds: “The impact of ‘An Inconvenient Truth’ cannot be minimized. From 2006 on, the documentary film and thousands of slide-show presentations around the country helped the green movement gain significant momentum. By presenting the updated sequel to this award-winning presentation, we’re continuing the global education efforts of Mr. Gore and his team, as well as supporting the EEA and the Ecology Center’s own community outreach and educational goals.”
