From the event announcement:

Critically, “Reinventing Power” underscores the notion that we don’t have to sacrifice jobs for a clean environment. Supporting a clean energy future means building a better, more prosperous future for everyone. Over the film’s 50 minutes, you’ll meet people in eight states whose lives were changed by the renewable energy industry while exploring various aspects of the clean energy industry from innovation to installation.

Doors open at 6 p.m. for snacks and conversation, and the film starts at 6:30 p.m. Stay for the discussion after the film with Sierra Club member Rebecca Wolfe.

  1. Approximately fifty people attended our Meaningful Movies presentation last night. The Sierra Club film, “Reinventing Power” opened a hopeful scenario of future energy developments that have already begun in states like Delaware (Block Island wind power in the Atlantic Ocean), California (a boom in electric vehicles and energy storage in Lancaster, CA with a huge increase in jobs), Michigan (transitioning from automobile manufacturing to wind turbine production), Texas (rapid development of wind energy), and other exciting projects.

    Following the 50-minute film we had a lively discussion about pro’s and con’s of hydropower and nuclear energy compared to energy efficiency and renewable energy resources as the planet reaches 409 ppm of CO2 — an emergency level that must be addressed our earth is to survive.

    If you have not yet seen “Reinventing Power,” we may be scheduling other showings of this film in the Edmonds-Lynnwood-Mukilteo-Bothell area. I encourage you to attend and to take your children, teenagers, and as many young people as you can. They will get inspiring ideas for their future careers.

    1. The problems with wind power continue to manifest. Intermittency has always been a issue, but the latest science even says wind isn’t scaleable either.

      Oil should be conserved, all energy should be conserved through prices, but nuclear is the energy future. Molten Salt Reactors are the future:
