Bill Nye’s Global Meltdown (45 mins)
“After talking to his therapist, ‘Dr.’ Arnold Schwarzenegger, scientist Bill Nye realizes he is suffering from grief: climate change grief. Thus begins an unusual look at climate change, as Nye examines Earth’s warming through the prism of the classic five stages of grief. Ultimately Nye seeks solutions in science, heading to Silicon Valley to explore how technology companies are trying to map out a clean energy future that can save the planet.”

Green Screen is a city-wide grassroots initiative organized by local Ottawa residents, with support from Ecology Ottawa, to engage our communities on climate change action. Through a series of film screenings in wards throughout the city, Green Screen strives to inspire local action on global issues, and show that by working on climate change in our own backyard we can have an impact on one of the world’s most pressing issues.
