Films For Change: Clean Energy and the Case for Hope
100% renewable can happen sooner than you think!

Are wind and solar too intermittent to provide most of our electricity?  Is LNG really needed as a transition fuel?  Will it be decades before electric vehicles affect the market for oil?  If you think so, the next Films For Change event will have news for you!

The BC Sustainable Energy Association (BCSEA), Kamloops Chapter, presents a collection of very recent videos that illustrate how close we are to a clean energy transition.  You’ll leave feeling hopeful, knowing that it’s possible to provide the world with 100% renewable energy in a few short decades.  The evening is part of the monthly Films For Change series hosted by the TRU Sustainability Office.

Location: TRU Alumni Theatre, Clock Tower
When:  Wednesday May 25, 7:00 pm (doors open 6:30 pm)
Admission by donation.
A panel of local experts will share insights and answer questions about the videos.

Change is happening so fast in the clean energy sector that it’s hard to keep up.  “Our group watched the videos together, and we all saw new information that was really exciting,” said Cheryl Kabloona, Chapter Chair.

The audience will hear from energy leaders Elon Musk (Tesla and Powerwall), Mark Jacobson (The Solutions Project) and former US Vice President Al Gore.  We’ll see what Bloomberg New Energy predicts for electric vehicles and the demand for oil, and what two First Nations here in Western Canada are doing with renewable energy.

Recognizing that technology isn’t the whole picture, the evening will conclude with videos on social solutions and hope.
