Filmmaker Jon Bowermaster is presenting only one of 3 screenings in California in Pacific Grove. Bowermaster a noted oceans expert, award-winning journalist, author, adventurer and six-time grantee of the National Geographic Expeditions Council. ‘Dear President Obama’ gives voice to some of the many Americans who have become victims of the president’s “all of the above” energy policy that has so often meant everything belowground, no matter the costs of extraction. In many cases that has meant poisoned drinking water, polluted air, sick families, and communities torn apart. More than 17 million Americans now live within one mile of an oil or gas well, and more still are affected by the pipelines, air-pollutant spewing compressor stations and bomb trains.
Fossil fuels are the dirty energy of the past.
We'll have a discussion about the initiative and ways you can help here in Monterey County after the film. Please bring a snack and beverages to share if you can.
