Join us for a compelling look at how we can create a clean energy revolution. In this long-awaited follow-up to his “An Inconvenient Truth,” Al Gore travels the world educating climate activists and updating us on ongoing climate change (floods, rising tides, super storms, melting glaciers, and other extreme weather events). The seriousness and urgency of the climate change problem is balanced by optimism that by taking action now we can create a better future.

Doors open at 6:00pm and refreshments are provided, so come and socialize before the show. The movie starts at 6:30pm.

After the movie stay for a community discussion on climate change action with our special guests from 350.org: Dean Smith (cofounder of 350 Everett), Mike and Marilyn Mallory (graduates of Al Gore’s Climate Reality Leadership Training), and Jackie Minchew (Delta 5 defendant).

Marilyn Mallory retired in 2016 from her 30 year career at the Everett School District as a teacher and Math Facilitator. Since that time she has become active in 350-Everett, is a Climate Justice Steward for the Alliance for Jobs and Clean Energy, and attended Al Gore’s Climate Reality Leadership Training in Pittsburgh in Oct 2017. Along with her husband, she has given several presentations on climate change to religious and other groups and has testified in Olympia in favor of Senate Bill 6203 which is a carbon tax bill with proceeds going to transition to renewable energy sponsored by Governor Inslee.

Jackie Minchew became a political activist in 2003, backing Howard Dean. In 2004, he added energy activism as he began learning about Peak Oil. Climate Change came next, thanks to Al Gore’s “An Inconvenient Truth.” In 2008, Jackie learned about the Transition Initiative Movement, and helped found Transition Everett. More recently, Jackie helped found a 350.org group in Everett. As he is fond of saying, Jackie does what he can.

Mike Mallory is a retired lawyer who took an online course through the World Bank entitled “Turn Down the Heat” a few years ago. He was convinced that climate change needed more attention and when Trump was elected knew that government was not the answer. Since retirement he has been active in Everett 350 and is a Climate Justice Steward for the Alliance for Jobs and Clean Energy. He was trained by Al Gore and the Climate Reality Project in Pittsburgh. He spends a lot of his time educating the public about Climate Change and pressuring Government to transition to clean energy.

Dean Smith has university degrees in physics, engineering and mathematics. He did national security work in the U.S. government for 15 years and has worked in a variety of types of engineering since. He is now retired and operates a small farm in Snohomish County. His home in Everett features solar panels and an electric car.
