Successful Screening of An Inconvenient Sequel

The screening of  An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power, at the Waco Hippodrome Theatre on October 17th was viewed by approximately 150 people, many of whom were new to Waco Friends of Peace/Climate events.

The high point of the film was Al Gore’s passionate speeches, especially: “How long? Not long, because the arc of the moral universe is long, but it bends toward justice.” (adapted from Martin Luther King, Jr.).  There were impressive scenes showing things already happening with the climate.  Also, the depiction of the activities leading up to the Paris Climate Accord was informative.

The film received a lengthy ovation at the conlusion.

About fifty more signatures were added to the Waco 100% renewable petition.  The climate action handout and reusable shopping bags were distributed to film viewers, and there was a drawing for six door prizes of climate related books.

Many thanks from FOP/C to Ana, Adrian, Travis, Harrison, Joyce, Serena and Amy for their assistance.
