Ohlone College Students Join Week of Action to Stop Global Warming
Fremont, CA—Ohlone College students are rising to the climate challenge during a national week of action to demand solutions that end our addiction to fossil fuels and build towards a clean energy future. The week of action, organized by the Campus Climate Challenge, includes more than 570 events covering 49 states and 8 Canadian provinces.
Ohlone College will host a screening of An Inconvenient Truth, the acclaimed documentary featuring former Vice-President Al Gore crossing the country educating Americans about the climate crisis. Prior to the movie will be a discussion of the issues raised in the film and direct opportunities for attendees to take action on campus and in the local community to advance clean energy policies and practices.
Global warming is adversely affecting the entire planet. It’s not too late to reverse climactic trends that could have drastic consequences. An Inconvenient Truth explains the causes and effects of global warming and what we can do to change our future. Join us at Ohlone College for free screenings of this important film that will change your outlook on our only home: Planet Earth.
