Happening: A Clean Energy Revolution

Wednesday, August 28th at 8:15 in Rhinebeck
Upstate Films and SunCommon present this FREE screening of filmmaker James Redford’s journey into the dawn of the clean energy era as it creates jobs, turns profits, and makes communities stronger and healthier across the US.

Director’s statement:
“Most Americans understand and accept the reality of climate change. Nonetheless, many of us feel uncertain about what we, as individuals, can do. For many of us, solutions to climate change seem out of reach, out of scale and fatally entwined in partisan politics. Meanwhile, the clean energy revolution is quietly underway. Electricity generated from wind and solar is increasingly more affordable than electricity generated from fossil fuels, and the growth curve for the generation and storage of renewable energy now resembles the exponential curves seen with the advent of radio, TV, and the internet. But can we meet all of our our energy needs with renewable energy? How would we do that? And, most importantly, will we do that? Happening chronicles my quest to answer these questions.” – James Redford
