Half our electricity comes from coal, the largest single source of greenhouse gases. But it doesn't have to be that way. Featuring stories from China to West Virginia, Dirty Business reveals the true social and environmental costs of coal power and explores the murky realities of "clean coal" technology. Guided by Rolling Stone reporter Jeff Goodell, the film highlights the work of energy innovators and the viable, renewable alternatives they offer in an age of rapid climate change.
Presented by the Surrey BC Greens (http://www.greenparty.bc.ca/surrey), the film will be introduced by Paula Williams of Communities and Coal (http://www.communitiesandcoal.com/), and the screening will be followed by a short discussion.
We hope you can join us.
