Meetup Description: I know it's been a bit since we've had our monthly movie, vegetarian potluck and discussion. Now that the weather is cooler and we won't all have a super sweaty movie viewing experience :).

This month's movie is: Everything's Cool
About:
" EVERYTHING'S COOL is a film about America finally "getting" global warming in the wake of the most dangerous chasm ever to emerge between scientific understanding and political action. While industry funded nay-sayers sing what just might be their swan song of pseudo- scientific deception, a group of global warming messengers are on a high stakes quest to find the iconic image, the magic language, the points of leverage that will finally create the political will to move the United States from its reliance on fossil fuels to the new clean energy economy - AND FAST.

We follow the country and our global warming messengers through an extraordinary three years of transformation, from 2003-to the eve of 2007 As much about messaging as it is about the messengers, as much about human nature as it is about humans' impact on nature, Everything's Cool explores what it will take to move America from laggard nation to world leader on global warming.

The ultimate challenge is to show urgent this situation really is - and still leave people optimistic and willing to do something. That perhaps is the ultimate challenge to all global warming messengers. Hold on... this is bigger than changing your light bulbs."
