20-20 hindsight - and climate workshop today, 2pm, city hall

From The Union, via Nevada County Voices -
Nevada City resident, KVMR radio host and writer Michael Stone traveled to the United Nations' Climate Change Conference in Copenhagen in December. Stone will host a discussion about what he observed in Copenhagen and how that can be translated into daily life.

When asked, what is the single most important thing humans can do to lessen their impact on the planet, he said:

“As a culture, keep the oil in the ground...It's way bigger than light bulbs.”

Stone's discussion is set from 2 to 4 p.m. Sunday, Jan. 17, at Nevada City Hall. No festival pass is needed.

It's great that this is happening; it would have been great, if it had been announced at the end of today's screening of The Age of Stupid. Thanks to The Union for getting the word out, where I was able to run across it.

Wow, I started looking at "The Making of 'The Age of Stupid'", here ...

... and the director is explaining how she opted for complete editorial freedom, etc, by avoiding traditional funding sources and going for "crowd funding."

This was an idea discussed in the film festival's workshop on "Get Your Film Out to the World."

Nice how all the really good ideas keep popping up all around us.
