Earth Day 2016 Film and Discussion: The Wisdom to Survive: Climate Change, Capitalism and Community


“Better than any film I know, it makes clear that our profit-oriented growth economy has caused the climate catastrophe and cannot itself rescue us from disaster. We need new thinking and a new way of life.”
Tom. F. Driver

“The beauty of the film is that it calls me out of the closet. This film honors the wisdom of youth, scientists, clergy,activists, indigenous peoples, artists, you…If you are haunted by the stupid thought that heroics are needed to save the planet and you think, ‘I’m no hero,’ then this film will help you forget that nonsense. ”
Jim Merkel

“You can’t talk about it. Mainstream society doesn’t want to hear about our sorrow for life on Earth.”
Joanna Macy
