Chestertown, MD, February 19, 2007 — Global warming is real. Its impacts are already felt, and the Eastern Shore needs to take action now to confront the climate crisis.
Grasonville resident John Cleveland, selected from thousands of applicants and personally trained by Al Gore, will present the PowerPoint version of the award-winning film "An Inconvenient Truth" at Washington College's Litrenta Lecture Hall on Monday, February 26, at 7 p.m.
This traveling version of "An Inconvenient Truth" is up-to-date and contains scientific and observational data specific to the Delmarva region. The presentation will be followed by a question-and-answer session as well as a discussion about what members of the community can do to help stop global warming.
John Cleveland is the Founder and President of the Global Warming Action Alliance. "This is the single most important issue of our generation," he said. "When our children and grandchildren ask us if we knew about the climate crisis and what we did to fight it, we want to be able to answer them proudly. Maryland, and especially the Eastern Shore, needs to understand the significance of this issue and learn how to be part of the solution."
Admission to "An Inconvenient Truth" is free and open to the public. The presentation is sponsored by Washington College's Center for the Environment and Society in cooperation with the Climate Project and the National Wildlife Federation. Litrenta Lecture Hall is located in the John S. Toll Science Center. For more information, call 410-778-7295.
