Sacramento State News - California State University, Sacramento
Documentary makes global warming a hot topic
warming, the moral and ethical challenges it presents, and what should be done
about it will be up for discussion following screenings of Al Gore’s documentary
An Inconvenient Truth at Sacramento State on Thursday, Sept. 21, in
the University Union Ballroom. Screening times are 10:30 a.m., 1:30 p.m., 4:30
p.m., and 7 p.m. Panel discussions are at noon and 8:40 p.m. The event is free
and open to the public.
The critically acclaimed documentary explores the global warming phenomenon
and the impact extreme weather patterns have had on the planet, including floods,
droughts, rising sea levels and heat waves. The film also deals with the myths
that surround global warming and points to human activity as a significant cause
of global warming.
But the film also points out that climate changes on the planet are not irrevocable
and that it is possible to slow the progression of global warming. Panel discussions
will focus on the global warming phenomenon and address how people can affect
positive change in the Earth’s environment.
The event is sponsored by Sacramento State’s University Union UNIQUE Programs,
Student Activities, Associated Students, Inc. and The Democracy Project. For
more information, call (916) 278-6997.
