Exciting Climate Series

April 4, 2014

Invite your friends and neighbors (especially the skeptics) to watch the first of a nine-part TV series on climate change: Years of Living Dangerously, Sunday, April 13th. James Cameron directs Hollywood celebrities and respected journalists who span the globe exploring the issues of climate change. 

The show features a moving story of the closure of a meat packing plant in Plainview Texas, caused by declines in cattle due to the drought, and also powerfully recounts the story of refugees and fighters in Syria who were displaced by drought.

The entire series will air on Showtime. The first episode is available online for free. Please RSVP to let us know you'll be a host or will view the show. When you do, we'll send you a special viewer's guide.

Listen to the discussion by expert health professionals and the movie's scientific advisor on the psychologic impacts of global warming as well as the benefits of watching this series in house parties and with friends.

  • Fracking: Harm on the Farm

    Chemical exposures that harm farm animals and wild animals raise concern about health risks for people living near fracking sites, as the animals use the same water and breathe the same air as humans. Another, indirect concern for human health also exists: in multiple known cases of chemical exposure, cows continued to produce dairy and meat for human consumption, although it remained untested for chemical contaminants.
