Issue Week: Climate Change!

This week’s issue is an especially hot topic: climate change! To kick off Climate Change Week, the Georgetown College Democrats and Georgetown EcoAction are cosponsoring two earthshaking events this Wednesday.

Letter Blitz!
Red Square | 11:55 – 12:25
Put dead trees to a good cause! Join the College Dems and EcoAction members as they write letters to Senator Reid and their representatives in Congress supporting strong legislative action on climate change.

Movie Watch!
Walsh 398 | 7:00 – 9:00
Take a well-earned study break and watch the environmentally-friendly film Home, 2009 documentary by Yann Arthus-Bertrand. The movie is almost entirely composed of aerial shots of various places on Earth and shows the diversity of life on Earth and how humanity is threatening the ecological balance of the planet.

In addition, check out this great New York Times article on what President Obama and Secretary of Energy Steven Chu are doing to “address climate change and refashion the nation’s energy economy.”
