Updcoming Event: Free Screening of Great Global Warming Swindle and discussion with prominent climate scientist Bob Balling

Albuquerque — The Rio Grande Foundation and Citizens Alliance for Responsible Energy will be hosting a series of free screenings of the British documentary “The Great Global Warming Swindle” statewide August 20-August 22. A discussion of the film and the relative impact of human-caused global warming with prominent climatologist Bob Balling will follow each event.
Al Gore’s An Inconvenient Truth has met its match. Despite its flamboyant title, The Great Global Warming Swindle is based on sound science and interviews with real climate scientists. An Inconvenient Truth, on the other hand, is mostly an emotional presentation from a single politician. Come see what the media isn’t telling you about global warming.
Each event (except Santa Fe) will be held in a “happy hour” type timeframe with refreshments from 5:00-5:30, showings at 5:30 and Robert Balling’s presentations at 6:30. In Santa Fe the event is also cosponsored by the Center/Right Coalition. Join us for lunch – snacks and soft drinks will be available (or bring a “brown bag” – no messy food please). The movie will start at 11:00AM and Robert Balling’s presentation will start at noon. In all locations, come for the whole program, or just the part that fits your schedule.
