All around the world a powerful transition is taking place. Communities are building local movements to address economic instability and the worst effects of climate change. Energy lies at the heart of our global society, and how we consume it impacts everything from the air we breathe and the food we eat, to our jobs and the health of our families.
The Future of Energy: Lateral Power to the People is a positive, fun film that focuses on energy solutions and the people behind the renewable energy revolution. It’s a love story about people re-imagining their relationship to the planet, and falling back in love with the Earth and each other.
Special Guest: Woody Hastings! Interviewed in the film, he is Renewable Energy Implementation Manager with Climate Protection Campaign. He will speak with us after the film.
Cast includes: Jeremy Rifkin, Bill McKibben, Joanna Macy, and more!
“By the final credits, you’ll know both how and why renewable energy is the cleanest, quickest, cheapest, and safest way to supply all of our energy needs.” Michael Brune, Executive Director, Sierra Club
A most exciting and enthusiastic romp across the US by students of the California Institute of Integral Studies to interview solar folks, mayors and officials who are making things happen in their communities; the interview with the folks of Greensburg, KS is outstanding.
After a tornado hit leaving the town 98% devastated, the town, not known to be tree huggers, decided to revamp their town with solar, biomass and wind (and never bothered to put fences up circling their homes!).
As Petaluma prepares for a community discussion on joining Sonoma Clean Power, come out see what other communities are doing to save money, save energy and save the planet!
