Join PDA on Tuesday for a Climate Emergency Strategy Session and Screening
Alan Minsky for the PDA National Team
On Tuesday PDA is hosting a special free screening of the exceptional new documentary film “I Am Greta” at 8pm EST / 5pm PST—please RSVP here.
After the film, there will be a climate emergency strategy session hosted by PDA Executive Director Alan Minsky and PDA’s Senior Strategic Advisor on Climate Russell Greene. Alan and Russell will be joined by Australian journalist and activist David Spratt, one of the world’s leading voices in the climate emergency movement.
We will be discussing what the scientific reality of climate change requires of humanity, and why the fate of humanity effectively rests in the hands of progressives in the United States and around the world.
PDA accepts this reality and the responsibility that comes with it. The United States and the world must transform energy systems ASAP. Have no illusions—only progressives are pursuing policies that match what the science says is necessary.
Simply put, this is a struggle that progressives have to win.
During the post-film discussion we will be discussing the developing struggle, led by Indigenous people in Minnesota, to stop the construction of Line 3—another pipeline designed to bring Canadian Tar Sands Oil into the United States. James Hansen, the man whose congressional testimony in the 1980s was instrumental in introducing the global warming crisis to the world, has said that if the tar sands are developed it’s “game-over” in the struggle to avert a climate catastrophe.
We must mobilize now to stop Line 3 and stall Tar Sands development.
Join PDA in that struggle by volunteering and donating, and join us Tuesday evening for the special PDA screening of “I Am Greta.”
