"A Fierce Green Fire" Acts 1-3 (2012) 
This movie is the first big-picture exploration of the environmental movement - grassroots and global activism spanning fifty years from conservation to climate change. The film tells vivid stories about people fighting - and succeeding - against enormous odds in 5 Acts. Act 1 focuses on the conservation movement of the '60s, the Sierra Club, David Brower and the battle to halt dams in the Grand Canyon. Act 2 looks at '70s environmentalism around pollution, focusing on the battle led by Lois Gibbs over Love Canal. Act 3 is about alternative ecology strands, with the main story being Greenpeace's campaign to save the whales. Act 3 will be followed by a discussion and intermission before the final Acts starting at 7 pm. http://www.afiercegreenfire.com/

"A Fierce Green Fire" Acts 4-5 (2012) 
This movie is the first big-picture exploration of the environmental movement - grassroots and global activism spanning fifty years from conservation to climate change. The film tells vivid stories about people fighting - and succeeding - against enormous odds in 5 Acts. Continuing from the previous event, Act 4 tells of the rise of global issues in the '80s. It focuses on the struggle to save the Amazon, led by Chico Mendes and the rubber tappers. Act 5 concerns climate change. First we look at its scientific origins. Then comes more than 20 years of frustration from Rio to Kyoto to Copenhagen . http://www.afiercegreenfire.com/
