Happening: A Clean Energy Revolution

Happening biggerOn Saturday, April 21, INYO350 and the Sierra Club Range of Light Group will present the  very engaging film Happening: A Clean Energy Revolution. Jamie Redford traces his power line to its source and then “embarks on a colorful personal journey into the dawn of the clean energy era…explores issues of human resilience, social justice, embracing the future, and finding hope for our survival.” We previewed a lot of climate change films, and this was the overwhelming favorite. Join us at Inyo Council for the Arts at 7 PM on Saturday night. And just like at the theater, we’ll have a couple of shorts before the main feature with two of the most entertaining scientists you could ever imagine: Bill Nye and Joe Hanson!
