On October 22nd, 2018, from 7:30-9:30 p.m. the Fairfax County, Virginia chapter of Citizens' Climate Education is cosponsoring a screening of “Tidewater” with the DC-based Center for Climate and Security.
This event features a screening of the award-winning 40-minute film "Tidewater," followed by a panel discussion.
The film tells the story of challenges faced by 13 military bases and 17 municipalities in the Hampton Roads area of Virginia, where water is rising and land is sinking. After the film, a panel of retired senior military experts from the Center for Climate and Security will outline challenges our military must meet to protect our nation in a changing climate, with an opportunity for audience questions. Citizens' Climate Education volunteers will discuss how concerned citizens can encourage Congress to take action to mitigate climate change in order to protect our national security and economy.
The panel includes:
Lieutenant General John G. Castellaw, USMC (Ret)
Rear Admiral Leendert “Len” Hering Sr., USN (Ret)
Brigadier General Gerald Galloway, USA (Ret)
John Conger, Director, Center for Climate and Security
