(Also readily available as an audio book) No advance booking, first come first served, donations on the door Event details: Cowspiracy: The Sustainability Secret - 6.00pm (85 mins) Cowspiracy is a groundbreaking feature-length environmental documentary following intrepid filmmaker Kip Andersen as he uncovers the devastating environmental impact large-scale factory farming has on our planet, – and investigates why the world’s leading environmental organizations are too afraid to talk about it. "Cowspiracy may be the most important film made to inspire saving the planet.” - Louie Psihoyos, Oscar-Winning Director of "The Cove” Don't Even Think About It- Why Our Brains Are Wired to Ignore Climate Change by George Marshall - Book Discussion 7.45pm Most of us recognize that climate change is real, and yet we do nothing to stop it. What is this psychological mechanism that allows us to know something is true but act as if it is not? George Marshall's search for the answers brings him face to face with Nobel Prize-winning psychologists and the activists of the Texas Tea Party; the world's leading climate scientists and the people who denounce them ... With engaging stories and drawing on years of his own research, Marshall argues that the answers do not lie in the things that make us different and drive us apart, but rather in what we all share: how our human brains are wired-our evolutionary origins, our perceptions of threats, our cognitive blindspots, our love of storytelling, our fear of death, and our deepest instincts to defend our family and tribe. "Don’t Even Think About It is the most important book published on climate change in the past few years” - George Monbiot, The Guardian
