MUST SEE MOVIE: Do the Math

Climate

350.org

In just 42 minutes, Do The Math: The Movie tells the story of the growing climate movement, from the new fossil fuel divestment campaign to the fight against the Keystone XL pipeline.

We're encouraging folks to host their local Do The Math screenings on April 21, on the eve of Earth Day (“Earth Night”), at 7 p.m. local time. We're hoping folks can wrap up their screenings in time to tune into one of two live-stream discussions, which are happening at 8 p.m. ET and 8 p.m. PT.

Like everything we do at 350.org, we need people power to make this work. We want this to be the springboard for the big plans we're making for the summer and beyond, which is why we hope to fill hundreds of living rooms and libraries across the country for this film. You don't need to go far to see the movie, since there's at least one screening near you.

Renewable energy advocates, however, warned the trend is imperiled by slowdowns in building new wind and solar plants.

Half the world is on lockdown. So, the constant hum of cars, trucks, trains and heavy machinery has stopped, drastically reducing the intensity of the vibrations rippling through the Earth's crust. Seismologists, who use highly sensitive equipment, have noticed a difference in the hum caused by human activity, according to Fast Company.
