LARNED — The Grass Roots Environmental Advocacy Team (GREAT) begins a series of monthly free public showings of environmental documentaries this Saturday with “Merchants of Doubt.”
“Merchants of Doubt” will be shown at 1 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 27, at the Jordaan Memorial Library in Larned.
This 93-minute film reveals the trickery used by the fossil fuels industry to deny the links between burning fossil fuels and climate change, sponsors said. In doing so, it exposes the spy agency style tactics used by the industry to prevent citizens from understanding those links and dangers posed to humanity.
The film’s producer, Robert Kenner, was nominated for “Outstanding Producer of Documentary Theatrical Motion Pictures” for his work on this entertaining film.
Free public showing of this film was made possible with support from Interfaith Power and Light. IPL is a national interdenominational faith organization whose members are dedicated to being “faithful stewards of creation by responding to global warming” by promoting “energy conservation, energy efficiency and renewable energy ... to protect earth’s ecosystems.”
GREAT promotes public awareness of environmental issues to encourage individual and public policy decisions leading to healthy environmental and economic systems. Its members reflect the wide diversity of backgrounds within our community. Members are mainly from Barton, Pawnee and Rush counties.
“Merchants of Doubt” will also be shown at 1:30 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 20, and 6:30 p.m. Monday, Feb. 22, at the Great Bend Public Library, 1409 Williams St.
