A FIERCE GREEN FIRE: The Battle For a Living Planet is the first big-picture exploration of the environmental movement: grassroots and global activism spanning fifty years from conservation to climate change. From halting dams in the Grand Canyon to battling 20,000 tons of toxic waste at Love Canal; from Greenpeace saving the whales to Chico Mendes and the rubbertappers saving the Amazon; from climate change to the promise of transforming our civilization… the film tells vivid stories about people fighting – and succeeding – against enormous odds.

DISCUSSION TO FOLLOW

After the film we will have discussion of issues raised by the film and hear from our special guest Alec Connon of 350Seattle.  Representatives of several other organizations which promote environmental justice will be attending to share what they are doing.

    This is one of my all time favorite environmental films. It helps to remember how much can be accomplished when concerned people unite and protest for positive change.
