    CLIMATE DESTABILIZATION: OUR LONG SLOW EMERGENCY
    VIDEO & DISCUSSION NIGHT:
    CRISIS OF CIVILIZATION: A DOCUMENTARY ABOUT GLOBAL CRISES

    The various crises we face today, from climate change to the economy, are not separate, distinct crises, but rather facets of a wider crisis of industrial civilization in its current form, linked to our dependence on fossil fuels. Whether we regard that reality
    optimistically or pessimistically, this century signals the end of the age of fossil fuels.

    However, the film points out that we are not all doomed!

    In fact, far from it.  While the film shows that business-as-usual is not sustainable,
    it points out that we are already in the midst of a global process
    of transition that offers unprecedented opportunities to re-envision new forms of prosperity
    that can function in harmony with our environment, rather than in conflict with it.

    Join us for a powerful and enlightening documentary.  Followed by discussion.

    We are in an unprecedented time of risk, uncertainty, and opportunity …  and with some urgency we are called
    to greater participation to serve our Emerging Future.

    Join us for this important discussion of how we move forward to create
    an Earth Community of justice, sustainability and peace!
    Bring your comments, questions ideas, and friends!

    Free! Open to all!
