Screening: BURNED with filmmakers Alan Dater and Lisa Merton


Date & Time: 
Aug 31 2017 - 7:00pm

Join us for a special screening of BURNED.
Pre-movie 20% discount at the Gleanery.

BURNED tells the little-known story of the accelerating destruction of
our forests for fuel, and probes the policy loopholes, huge subsidies, and
blatant green washing of the burgeoning biomass power industry. A dedicated
group of forest activists, ecologists, carbon scientists, and concerned
citizens fight to establish the enormous value of our forests, protect their
communities, debunk this false solution to climate change, and alter energy
policy both in the US and abroad. It’s not too late.

There will be a post-screening discussion
with filmmakers Alan Dater and Lisa Merton, Associate Producer Chris Hardee, Composer
Ty Gibbons, and William Moomaw, one of the scientists in the film
.

 Bill Moomaw is Emeritus Professor of
International Environment and Resource policy at the Fletcher School of Law and
Diplomacy at Tufts University where he continues as co-director of the Global
Development and Environment Institute. He is a chemist who has been working on
climate science and policy for nearly 30 years. He has worked on the role of
renewable energy in reducing heat-trapping gases, and on increasing the role of
forests and other ecosystems to actively remove carbon dioxide from the
atmosphere and store it in plants and soils. He has served as a lead author of
five Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change reports including the Special
Report on Renewable Energy that assessed the future of bioenergy. He and his
wife, Margot have just completed ten years living in one of the first zero net
energy homes in New England that produces and exports to the grid more energy
than it uses for heat, hot water and all electrical appliances and lighting.
