Decoding the Weather
Monday, Apr. 19
or call 530-333-4724.

As part of the grant “Resilient Communities: Libraries Respond to Climate Change” that the Georgetown Library received through the American Library Association we have the opportunity to offer a free virtual screening of the NOVA documentary Decoding the Weather Machine.

Disastrous hurricanes. Widespread droughts and wildfires. Withering heat. Extreme rainfall. It is hard not to conclude that something’s up with the weather, and many scientists agree. It’s the result of the weather machine itself—our climate—changing, becoming hotter and more erratic. In this two-hour documentary, NOVA will cut through the confusion around climate change. Why do scientists overwhelmingly agree that our climate is changing, and that human activity is causing it? How and when will it affect us through the weather we experience? And what will it take to bend the trajectory of planetary warming toward more benign outcomes? Join scientists around the world on a quest to better understand the workings of the weather and climate machine we call Earth, and discover how we can be resilient—even thrive—in the face of enormous change.

Streaming will be available until Friday, April 23rd. Join the Zoom group discussion on Saturday, April 24th at 1:00 pm, hosted by the Library in partnership with KFOK Radio and the Divide Climate Council.
**Resilient Communities: Libraries Respond to Climate Change is a pilot program of the American Library Association.
The Georgetown Library also has DVD copies of the film available for checkout.
