Environmental Film Discussion: Decoding the Weather Machine

April 20 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm

Join Sturgis Library for a ZOOM discussion of the film, Decoding the Weather Machine, which you can view at home before the discussion, once you register for the program. Free and open to all. To sign up and receive the ZOOM link, email sturgisreference@comcast.net

This program is brought to you by a generous grant from the American Library Association’s Resilient Communities Program.

About the movie:

Disastrous hurricanes. Widespread droughts and wildfires. Withering heat. Extreme rainfall. It is hard not to conclude that something’s up with the weather, and many scientists agree. It’s the result of the weather machine itself—our climate—changing, becoming hotter and more erratic. In this two-hour documentary, NOVA will cut through the confusion around climate change. Why do scientists overwhelmingly agree that our climate is changing, and that human activity is causing it? How and when will it affect us through the weather we experience? And what will it take to bend the trajectory of planetary warming toward more benign outcomes? Join scientists around the world on a quest to better understand the workings of the weather and climate machine we call Earth, and discover how we can be resilient—even thrive—in the face of enormous change.
