From low-tech solutions to high-tech innovations–including those being explored by the US military, the state of Texas and China–there are a wide range of practical options available to meet Earth's growing need, according to the 2011 documentary "Earth: The Operator's Manual" showing Sunday, February 05 at 2:00 pm as part of the Galt Museum & Archives The Curator Presents... series.
In the 53-minute documentary, host Richard Alley takes viewers on a tour of sites around the world where evidence of climate change is visible, and presents an objective, accessible assessment of the problems and possibilities that leaves people informed, energized and optimistic.
The Curator Presents...series is held three times annually, with invited guest lecturers or Curator Wendy Aitkens herself presenting in-depth discussion on current special exhibits at the Galt.
"For this session focusing on climate change I have invited Dr. James Byrne, who is a Professor and Chair of Geography at the University of Lethbridge, to introduce Earth: The Operator's Manual and then facilitate a discussion," says Curator Wendy Aitkens. "He is well-respected and considered an expert witness on water and climate issues."
Admission fees apply [free to annual pass holders] and include access to the related exhibit Earth's Climate in the Balance–a travelling exhibit produced by the Bruce County Museum & Cultural Centre.
