8 Billion Angels
June 2, 2021 @ 8:00 AM - June 7, 2021 @ 9:00 PM$12 – $20
Pennsylvania Interfaith Power & Light is proud to present an important community event this June when we host an Exclusive Screening and Live Panel Discussion of the newly released award-winning documentary 8 BILLION ANGELS.
The event is a great opportunity for you, your family and friends to learn more about an issue of critical importance to the future of our planet.
8 BILLION ANGELS has been called “an absorbing tale, revealing the shocking truth” by William Ripple, lead author of the 2017 Scientists’ Warning to Humanity: A Second Notice and 2020’s The World Scientists’ Warning of a Climate Emergency.
Today, humanity’s demand for resources vastly exceeds nature’s ability to supply them. Food, water, climate, and extinction emergencies are unfolding before our eyes. 8 BILLION ANGELS documents the conflict between the size of our global population and the sustainability of our planet. It dispels the misperceptions that technology can save us, that reducing consumption is the only answer, and that the blame lies solely in the developing world. Using breathtaking cinematography, the film takes the viewer on an immersive and emotional journey into the lives of farmers, fisherman and others as they witness an unfolding global crisis. It inspires real solutions toward lasting sustainability and a better quality of life for all Earth’s inhabitants.
