“Do The Math” is a documentary that discusses the future of climate change. It challenges the fossil fuel industry by looking at the mathematics of scientific research. The film features climate change activist Bill McKibben and is produced by 350.org. Founded by McKibben, 350.org is an international climate change campaign named for the concentration of atmospheric carbon dioxide that most climate scientists consider the threshold above which the negative impacts of climate change will affect Earth’s ecosystems and economies.
McKibben is a well-known environmental author and activist. He is an active writer on the climate crisis and other environmental issues. McKibben has been awarded the Guggenheim and Lyndhurst Fellowships and in 2000 won the Lannan Prize for nonfiction writing. His 1989 book “The End of Nature” was the first to warn the general public about the threat of global warming. McKibben is currently a Scholar in Residence at Middlebury College and lives in Ripton, Vt. with his wife and daughter.
The screening is free and open to the public.
