THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 6TH DECODING THE WEATHER MACHINE NOVA FILM 5:30-7:30PM

Come join us on Thursday at 5:30PM at the Ben May Mobile Public Library’s Bernheim Hall for an informative film on climate change and weather, below is a description of the film from the official website:

“Disastrous hurricanes. Widespread droughts and wildfires. Withering heat. Extreme rainfall. It is hard not to conclude that something’s up with the weather, and many scientists agree. It’s the result of the weather machine itself—our climate—changing, becoming hotter and more erratic. In this two-hour documentary, NOVA will cut through the confusion around climate change. Why do scientists overwhelmingly agree that our climate is changing, and that human activity is causing it? How and when will it affect us through the weather we experience? And what will it take to bend the trajectory of planetary warming toward more benign outcomes? Join scientists around the world on a quest to better understand the workings of the weather and climate machine we call Earth, and discover how we can be resilient—even thrive—in the face of enormous change.”

Dan Gardner co-founded Compass Solar Energy and serves as the VP of Business Development. He was an early adopter in the renewables and environment industry. Compass Solar is Northwest Florida’s largest Solar Energy specialist and has been serving Florida and the surrounding areas since 1998, involved in thousands of solar projects. Skilled in Sustainability, Solar Photovoltaics (PV), Renewable Energy, Strategic Planning, and Energy Efficiency.

The reality is that clean energy is available now. The cost for solar energy continues to plummet, and capacity is scaling up rapidly. Over two thirds of new utility in the world has come from clean energy.

Alabama is among the top 10 states that have the most significant rooftop solar power potential, but Alabama’s legislative policy landscape prevents people from taking advantage of it, so the solar markets have never been given a chance to shine. It’s shameful to see our sunny state fail to lead the transition from a fossil fuel economy to a clean, renewable solar energy economy, that would bring local, good paying jobs, that cannot be outsourced.

Dan will talk about huge solar success around the world and what the Alabama state legislature could do to support Alabama solar industry economic opportunities for reliable, clean electricity, community resilience and job creation in a state that desperately needs it.

When: Tuesday Evening, September 4th at 6:00 p.m.

Refreshments will be served at 6:00 p.m. and the program will begin at 6:30 p.m.

Where: 5 Rivers, Tensaw Theater, follow the Sierra Club signs.

 

Location address: 5 River, Alabama’s Delta Resource Center, 30945 Five Rivers Blvd., Spanish Fort, AL 36527 (entrance is across from Meaher State Park on the Mobile Bay Causeway).
