February Monthly Meeting & Actions W/ James Balog, Earth Vision Institute

Average Rating:

Each month, Citizens’ Climate Lobby supporters gather locally for a monthly meeting where we educate ourselves by listening to a guest speaker. Go to your local chapter's page to find out more about your chapter's plans for listening in. February's Monthly Meeting took place on Saturday, Feb. 12th at 1:00 pm ET and featured a conversation with James Balog founder and director of Earth Vision Institute.

5646c68fffc3a8a3f29b75dccda5531e-huge-snMany people now working to preserve a livable world were motivated after viewing the documentary "Chasing Ice." Pictures, as they say, are worth a thousand words, and James Balog's images and films speak volumes about the damage human activities have inflicted on our environment. For 35 years, the acclaimed photographer has documented how we have modified our planet's natural systems. He founded the Earth Vision Institute, whose work was featured in "Chasing Ice." He has a new book out, based on the film, "The Human Element: A Time Capsule from the Anthropocene," and we're thrilled to have him join us on this month's call.
