MUST SEE MOVIE: Do the Math

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.

Perhaps we've begun to notice more, like the birds hopping around in the bushes out back, wondering (maybe for the first time) what they are.
