Movie Night: “Earth: the Operator’s Manual”
Sep 11 @ 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm
-Presents

“Earth: the Operator’s Manual”
“Earth: The Operators’ Manual” dispenses with politics, polemics or punditry; instead, it presents an objective, accessible assessment of the Earth’s problems and possibilities that will leave viewers informed, energized and optimistic.
j
Media that Makes a Difference!

“Earth: The Operators’ Manual” (ETOM for short) is a PBS mini-series of three one hour programs that recasts the challenge of climate change as a kick in the pants to the ongoing movement to tap the full potential of efficiency and renewable energy. ETOM rejects “doom & gloom” and controversy. Yes, climate change is real, but there are lots of things we can do to adapt, to innovate and begin to mitigate what’s happening. ETOM isn’t about just convincing people about climate, it’s about taking action that’s a win-win-win for all of us. As series host Richard Alley says, “If we approach Earth as if we have an Operators’ Manual, we can avoid climate catastrophes, improve energy security, and make millions of good jobs.” – See more at: http://earththeoperatorsmanual.com/watch-party/how-to-host-a-watch-party…

People’s Climate March San Diego
Sep 21 @ 12:30 pm – 3:30 pm

The People’s Climate March San Diego will be on Sunday, September 21, 2014. We’ll gather at City Hall at 12:30 to call for a strong Climate Action Plan, stop at the American Plaza / Santa Fe Station to highlight transportation alternatives, and end at the County Administration Building Park, where we will hear from local leaders.  View the route,speakers, and other event details. We’ll also have bike rides and a special coaster coming in to the march.  For more information visit the event website, Facebook, and Twitter.

This is your invitation to change everything.

On September 21st people from around the nation will come together in an unprecedented citizen mobilization for the People’s Climate March in New York City. As world leaders meet at the United Nations climate change summit, hundreds of thousands of marchers will demand the world we know is within our reach: a world with an economy that works for people and the planet; a world safe from the ravages of climate change; a world with good jobs, clean air and water, and healthy communities. Other marches will take place around the world as we collectively call on our leaders toact on climate change.

A growing coalition of San Diego organizations and individuals are working together to ensure that our local leaders know that San Diegans are also watching, and we too demand climate action now. We are working to bring hundreds of San Diegans together for the People’s Climate March San Diego to support the marchers in New York and to call for immediate action on climate change here at home. We will call for solutions that work for people and the planet – a rapid transition from fossil fuels to renewables and energy efficiency, and a just and sustainable economy. We will press our elected leaders to implement a strong Climate Action Plan for San Diego; develop sustainable water policies; build affordable mass transit and facilitate healthy communities; and support green jobs and clean energy.
