Climate change films at Netroots Nation

For this Sunday's entertainment entry, I present the trailers to three environmental films that were featured at Netroots Nation on Thursday at a session titled "Changing the climate on climate change; a showcase of films for environmental action."  The first of the three was THE WISDOM TO SURVIVE: Climate Change, Capitalism & Community—Trailer.

Climate change is taking place. Will we have the wisdom to survive? The film features thought leaders and activists in the realms of science, economics and spirituality. The focus: how we can live creatively and even joyfully in the face of this catastrophe.

Featured in the film: Bill McKibben, Joanna Macy, Gus Speth, Roger Payne, & more!

"This film is deeply moving and profoundly engaging. Indeed, it has the potential to transform lives because it provides visions of how we should live in the midst of massive environmental challenges. I cannot recommend it more highly!"—Mary Evelyn Tucker, Forum on Religion & Ecology at Yale.
Follow over the jump for the trailers for two other films screened at the session.

It turns out that the British Monarchy has a YouTube channel and it features the next film, Harmony - A New Way of Looking at our World.

The Prince of Wales has written a book called Harmony about how man has become "dangerously disconnected" from Nature. A film accompanies the book in which is written by HRH The Prince of Wales, Tony Juniper and Ian Skelly. Harmony: A New Way of Looking at the World.
No wonder the LaRouchies hate environmentalism; if the Prince of Wales is for it, then they have to be against it!

Finally, Keystone PipeLIES Exposed - Opener.

The entire 23-minute film is here.  I recommend that my readers watch it.  If so, and people act upon it, my prediction that the Keystone XL pipeline is "a dumb idea that's going to hurt Americans, and it's still likely to happen" won't come true.  I'd like to be wrong on that one.
