DEXTER - Dexter Dover Area Towns in Transition (DDATT) will be continuing its film series on energy, economy, and environmental issues with a showing of the controversial film "Age of Stupid" on Friday evening September 10th at Dexter Town Hall's downstairs meeting room. The 90 minute movie will start at 7 PM, followed by discussion until 9:30. As usual, refreshments from local farms and orchards will be available.
As the title suggests, this film wonders why humans are not doing more in response to increasingly clear and ominous signals from natural systems that serious and irreversible changes are taking place. Made in 2008 by English director Fran Armstrong, the main character, sitting in his Arctic stronghold in the year 2055, looks back over the first decade of the century at the lifestyles and choices of humans all over the world, from actual documentary footage of various changes and events.
Many people do not believe that climate change is real. Many people think climate change is well underway. DDATT invites all interested people, young and old, to come to this month's filming and afterwards lend their viewpoint to the discussion.
DDATT is an informal group of local citizens concerned about our society's heavy dependence on oil and coal for almost everything we do, and who are actively working together planning for when these energy sources become more expensive and harder to get. The more people involved, the more ideas; the more ideas, the more likely we will find good solutions for our local problems.
The next DDATT film night will be October 8th. For more info call 924-3836 or 277-4221.
