April 13, Thursday – 7PM – TOO HOT NOT TO HANDLE – 53 Minutes – City Library,
210 E 400 South – SLCFC: HBO

This advance screening of HBO’s Earth Day film was awarded to Salt Lake Mayor
Rocky Anderson for making Salt Lake City one of our country’s climate
protection cities and is presented in partnership with the Mayor’s Office, The
Wallace E. Stegner Center for Land, Resources and the Environment & KUED7

TOO HOT NOT TO HANDLE offers a wealth of chilling evidence that the greenhouse
effect is steadily worsening and the Earth is warming faster than at any other
time in history. This is more than just a sobering preview of what will happen
over the next century if unbridled consumption of fossil fuels continues, it
also explores creative and potentially lucrative energy options that can lead
to a better quality of life and increased prosperity in the future. Encouraging
viewers to think outside the barrel, the film’s experts give viewers an extended
look at the innovative ways Americans can reduce global warming and literally
change the world with Earth-friendly options. TOO HOT NOT TO HANDLE travels
across America to meet ordinary (and not so ordinary) citizens who are already
using creative approaches to cut down on petroleum consumption. We can make a
difference.

documentary filmmakers explore the already realized effects of global warming.
Numerous science experts review a growing body of evidence of the grave
consequences of a changing climate, and explore how individuals, communities
and organizations across America are creating new approaches to safeguard
future generations. The documentary also looks at evidence that human
activities are provoking an unprecedented era of atmospheric warming and
climatic events: more drought, wildfires and flooding; polar melting; more
powerful storms; and more variable weather. Tropical diseases are moving north;
childhood respiratory illnesses are skyrocketing; and in the last three decades
more than 30 diseases new to science have emerged.
