Time: 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
See how Americans are developing solutions to climate change at a free screening of Paris to Pittsburgh, a National Geographic documentary hosted by local environmental organizations.
The screening is part of the University of Missouri-Kansas City student-sponsored Earth Day events from 6 – 8 p.m., Thursday, April 25, UMKC Miller Nichols Learning Center, 800 E. 51st St., Kansas City, MO.
The documentary tells the stories of American people, businesses and municipalities that are working to create renewable energy jobs and reduce carbon emissions. It features Bill Peduto, mayor of Pittsburgh, PA, who says there are now more jobs in renewable energy in the state of Pennsylvania than coal, natural gas and oil combined.
“The American government may have pulled out of the Paris Agreement, but the American people are committed to its goals, and there is nothing Washington can do to stop us,” says Michael R. Bloomberg, United Nations Special Envoy for Climate Action, in the documentary.
