Film Screening: Winds of Change
From the damage wrought by Hurricane Sandy to the upheaval caused by drought in the Middle East, the groundbreaking documentary series Years of Living Dangerously provides first-hand reports on those affected by, and seeking solutions to, climate change.
In Winds of Change, America Ferrera profiles prominent climate change skeptic James Taylor of the Heartland Institute as he crusades against clean energy, and investigates the battle over the future of renewable energy in the US. New York Times columnist Mark Bittman returns to conduct a yearlong investigation into natural gas, which has been touted as “America’s energy source” and a way towards a cleaner, greener future. Is it true?

Film Screening: The Burden
The first documentary of its kind to tell the story of our dependence on fossil fuels as the greatest long‐term national security threat confronting the U.S., and how the military is leading our transition away from oil. The troops are crying out, in the words of Gen. James Mattis, “to unleash us from the tether of fuel.” But is Congress listening?
Parking on campus: The Lake Street Parking Garage is close to Yates and its first level is available for visitors at $1.75 per hour. So too is the South College Avenue Garage, which is further away to the east.
On W. Lake St., two small lots close to Yates (#535 and 540) require permits before 4:00 but are available for free thereafter.
