LSC-Kingwood Observes "Earth Week"

LSC-Kingwood Observes "Earth Week"LSC-Kingwood will observe Earth Week the week of April 21-25, 2014 with the screening of two films.

The film, “Chasing Ice” will be screened on Monday, April 21 at 12:30 p.m. and 6:30 p.m. in the Teaching Theatre, CLA Room 114. The film is the story of one man’s mission to change the tide of history by gathering undeniable evidence of our changing planet. Within months of the first trip to Iceland, the photographer, James Balog, conceived the boldest expedition of his life: The Extreme Ice Survey. With a band of young adventurers in tow, Balog began deploring revolutionary time-lapse cameras across the Artic to capture a multi-year record of the world’s changing glaciers.

On Wednesday, April 23, the film, “Switch” will be screened at 12 noon in the Teaching Theatre, CLA Room 114. The film addresses how energy resources—fossil, nuclear and renewable are all undergoing profound changes. The film traces the gradual shift from coal and oil to the energies of tomorrow. This sweeping transition is the subject of Switch.

The community is invited to both screenings. Popcorn will be served. For more information, contact Mikha Mitchell at 281-312-1468 or visit http://kwlibguides.lonestar/earth-day.
