2/2/2019 Southeast Iowa Sierra Club Hosts Showing of Paris to Pittsburgh Film

The Southeast Iowa Sierra Club and Climate Action Iowa are hosting the compelling film Paris to Pittsburgh on Saturday February 2, at 2:00 pm at the Fairfield Public Library.  This event is free and open to the public.

Distributed by National Geographic, this powerful documentary features stories of everyday Americans -mayors, governors, community groups, businesses and ordinary citizens – responding to America’s announced withdrawal from the Paris Climate Accord by embracing solutions like renewable energy and reaping the benefits of cleaner air, job growth and cost-cutting—all close to home where it matters most.

From the former coal town of Pittsburgh to America’s breadbasket of Iowa to the island of Puerto Rico, the film takes you through natural disasters in numerous communities, as well as their recovery, resiliency and tireless efforts to inspire homegrown change. Watch for a segment on the Kalona Iowa Municipal Utilities solar initiative and an interview with Iowa State Senator Rob Hogg.

The Sierra Club invites you to join them for this educational opportunity on this important topic
