      The new film, Divest! will be available in Late January from Bullfrog- might be a good follow up to the TCE series:

      Web Page: http://www.bullfrogfilms.com/catalog/divest.html

      <span class=”ar12″>As world governments struggle to meet the aspirational limit of 1.5°C of global warming agreed to at COP21 in Paris, a new campaign is targeting the fossil fuel industry in an effort to withdraw its social license to operate. DIVEST! chronicles 350.org’s ‘Do the Math’ bus tour across the United States in 2012 as it launched the fossil fuel divestment campaign onto the national and ultimately international stage. </span>Each night Bill McKibben and special guests laid out the findings in his landmark Rolling Stone article ‘Global Warming’s Terrifying New Math’ and made both the moral and historical case for divestment. Three years later over 500 institutions representing over 3 trillion dollars in assets have committed to divest. The campaign is winning, but with the clock ticking down the question remains: will the victories add up enough to matter?

      Featuring Naomi Klein, Reverend Lennox Yearwood, Dr. Sandra Steingraber, Josh Fox, Terry Tempest Williams, Winona LaDuke, Desmond Tutu and Ira Glass.

      Rick has a link to preview the film (good through December only). Contact him directly at rick@meaningfulmovies.org.

      Saw this.  It appears to be a rehash of McKiben’s “Do The Math”.  Seemed to have a lot of “filler” in it.
