Webinar: Carbon Pollution, Our Changing Climate, and What You Can Do


Climate Reality

Published on Oct 29, 2014

In the two years since Superstorm Sandy ravaged the East Coast, communities worldwide have continued to suffer the effects of climate change – droughts, storms, wildfires, and biblical flooding – driven by the unlimited burning of fossil fuels.

In honor of the anniversaries of Sandy in the US and Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines, The Climate Reality Project hosted a webinar highlighting the connection between carbon pollution from fossil fuels and the extreme weather devastating our cities – and what people can do about it today.

Join The Climate Reality Project’s Ryan Towell, meteorologist and Director of Science and Solutions and Stephen Mills, Director of Strategic Partnerships, to learn more about:

How carbon pollution contributes to climate change
– How climate change impacts storms like Sandy and Haiyan
– Why the “speed limit” on hurricanes has increased
– What you can do to support limits on carbon pollution

If you haven’t done so already, please remember to send a comment to the EPA in support of limits on carbon pollution here: http://bit.ly/CPPwebinar

The Story of Bottled Water (2010)

The Story of Bottled Water, released on March 22, 2010 (World Water Day) employs the Story of Stuff style to tell the story of manufactured demand—how you get Americans to buy more than half a billion bottles of water every week when it already flows from the tap. Over five minutes, the film explores the bottled water industrys attacks on tap water and its use of seductive, environmental-themed advertising to cover up the mountains of plastic waste it produces. The film concludes with a call to take back the tap, not only by making a personal commitment to avoid bottled water, but by supporting investments in clean, available tap water for all.

Our production partners on the bottled water film include five leading sustainability groups: Corporate Accountability International, Environmental Working Group, Food & Water Watch, Pacific Institute, and Polaris Institute.
