In celebration of National Energy Awareness Month, the Alliance to Halt Fermi 3 invites you to attend a free showing of the newly-released documentary "The Future of Energy." It has a very broad scope - global, in fact - combining people thinking about why fossil fuels need to be eliminated, what can be done with renewable energy in the next several decades, and what steps different individuals and communities have already taken in that direction. It's something that we all are thinking about, or at least should be thinking about. After the film, we'll have a discussion along with some light refreshments. It's all free and open to the public. Please come, and bring your friends.
