World Community kicks off its fall film series Sept. 24 at 7:30 p.m. in the North Island College theatre with a provocative film that tackles one of the key issues of our time, climate change and its causes.

The award-winning (and not so subtly-titled) documentary, Greedy Lying Bastards, investigates the reason behind stalled efforts to tackle climate change despite consensus in the scientific community that it is a critical problem.

With melting sea ice, glacier loss and rising sea levels, severe droughts and wildfires, increasingly severe storms and record heat waves, climate change is no longer a prediction for the future, but a startling reality of today.

Yet, as evidence of our changing climate mounts and the scientific consensus points to human causation, there continues to be little political action to thwart the warming of our planet.

Greedy Lying Bastards details the people and organizations casting doubt on climate science and who is funding them. From the Koch brothers to Exxon Mobil, to oil industry front groups, to prominent politicians, this exposé unravels layers of deceit and the financial trail that explains it all.

Admission is by donation. Everyone is welcome. For information, phone 250-337-5412.
