Watch 3 Environmental Movies for Fee

50th Anniversary Earth Day 
                                                             Film Festival

To celebrate the 50th anniversary of Earth Day, April 22 Climate Change Awareness & Action, CCAA is offering three documentary films on climate change for free streaming to the community while we are all “sheltering in place” to fight the coronavirus. 

This is a great opportunity for families to learn about the impact of climate change and what we can do to create a safe world for the next generation. 

The films are:

* A Sea Change: Using a delightful series of exchanges between a grandfather and his grandson interspersed with beautifully filmed sequences from around the globe, A Sea Change presents in an understandable way the process of ocean acidification, its implications for future generations, and examples of concrete steps  to reduce problems associated with increasing carbon dioxide emissions.

* The Suzuki Diaries: Sustainability in Action: David Suzuki, host of CBC's "The Nature of Things,"  travels to Europe to explore what a sustainable future might look like. A heartwarming story  of a father and daughter in search of a sustainable world.

* Weather Gone Wild: The documentary travels to New York, Miami, Toronto, Calgary and Rotterdam to detail the dangers of the destructive new weather patterns, and shows the innovative plans each city is trying to engineer their way to a safer future. Everything from farming to the insurance industry to building codes will have to change. 

The three films will be available for live streaming for a two week period:  Friday, April 24 - Friday, May 8 

CCAA is a local organization concerned about climate change representing 2,000 people in CNY.

The following is my most recent post for Life in the Finger Lakes Magazine.

For the first time in a month I went grocery shopping at Wegmans last week. As a senior and someone who is recuperating from surgery only a few months ago I would be very vulnerable should I get Covid-19. I wore a mask and gloves. When I finished putting my groceries in my car’s trunk I took my gloves off and shut the trunk door. As I began pushing my cart to the receptacle where grocery carts are stored I realized I was not wearing my gloves and said, “shoot.”
Then I heard a voice behind me say, “ I can take that for you.”
I turned around and saw a woman in her thirties. She pulled down her sleeves to cover her hands and she said, “See. My hands are covered.”
I told her “thanks for your kindness, but my hands have already touched the cart.”
For years preppers and survivalists have been telling us to stock up on food and load up on guns and ammo to protect ourselves during a crisis. Believing that thugs would be out to rob us and roving bands would be looking to do home invasions.
There has been none of this.
There have instead been incredible acts of kindness and generosity. Television is filled with pictures of health care workers, bus drivers, grocery store clerks and others that have put themselves at risk so that we may be safe. There have been busloads of nurses that have left the Finger Lakes Region for New York City, the epicenter of the virus, to help short-staffed hospitals that are bursting at the seams.
If you have ever seen a person interviewed on television that rescued someone from a fire, or helped a drowning person, often they will say that they are not a hero. Rather a situation presented itself, where they were at the right place at the right time, and that they just acted naturally.
In the months and years ahead many situations will be presented to us. Do we step up like the woman who offered to return my shopping cart, or do we just go about our business? Will you become a hero to someone in need?

Pandemics--Hurt Mother Nature and Pay the Price

Hippocrates, the father of medicine, said, “Illnesses do not come upon us out of the blue. They are developed from small daily sins against Nature. When enough sins have accumulated, illnesses will suddenly appear.”

The video below gives a first hand account of how Hippocrates word ring true. tt is an interview with James Robbins Science, Science and Environmental reporter with the NY Times, who explains how our treatment of Mother Nature led to our current  pandemic.
