This documentary shows the human face of the growing climate crisis.
Climate change and global warming are among our planet's most urgent issues.  Massive population displacement is already resulting in homelessness and landless millions, and creates tensions between nations.  The US Department of Defense finds that climate refugees are a serious security threat.   What can be done about survival and a home for victims?  Isn't this one of the most compelling reasons for global climate action?

The event is co-sponsored by China Focus, a student group in the UC Berkeley Energy and Resource Collaborative.

There will be a briefing in front of the life size T. Rex in the Atrium of the Valley of Life Sciences Building at 5:45 pm to remind us of the effect of climate change on dinosaurs.

Entry to the Film Forum is free and refreshments will be provided. Donations are welcomed.

Michael Nash and Kate O'Neill UC Berkeley Climate Specialist will answer questions after the showing.
