When: Sat., Nov. 8, 5-8 p.m. 2014
Citizens’ Climate Lobby (CCL) San Antonio chapter is hosting a series of free events for anyone interested in engaging the political process to respond to global warming. While people often associate climate change with increasing temperatures and melting glaciers, the weekend starts with a presentation by 40-year USAF veteran Abraham Madha, who takes a more nuanced look at global warming's far-reaching implications to our national security. Abraham will then be joined by other veterans for a panel discussion. Immediately following will be a screening of the award-winning film “Fierce Green Fire,” which stars Robert Redford and Meryl Streep and reviews the history of conservation movements. There will be a brief Q&A discussion afterward about how CCL's non-partisan, respectful approach to citizen advocacy is changing the discussion in Washington around managing the risks of climate change.
