Screening of Shored Up 2/25
When Superstorm Sandy devastated the East Coast, it was a wake-up call to a new reality. SHORED UP takes us to the heart of this climate change controversy, following communities in New Jersey and North Carolina where politics, economics, and science collide.
Beginning 3 years before Sandy hit and following the debates over beach replenishment and other attempts to hold back the sea, SHORED UP is a convincing call for action along our coasts. As the oceans rise and storms flood our towns and cities, we have a choice to make: do we continue to develop as we have in the past, ignoring clear risks and danger? Or, do we allow science to guide our policies for the future...before it's too late?
Official Selection at the San Francisco Green Film Festival.
Discussion will follow a screening of the film. Doors open at 6pm. Admission is free; food and drinks will be available for purchase.
