Third Thursday Environmental Film Series

The third Thursday Environmental Film Series continues with the showing of Burning the Future: Coal in America Thursday, October 15 at 7:30 p.m. at Alamo Drafthouse, 1233 SW Loop 410. 


 The monthly film series is hosted by environmental organizations including Solar San Antonio, Greater Edwards Aquifer Alliance, Green Spaces Alliance, Sierra Club and Bexar Audobon Society.  Admission is $5 for students, members of the organizations named above and EchoTown green card holders.  General admission is $9.


 According to the Solar San Antonio website  “Burning the Future: Coal in America” examines the explosive conflict between the coal industry and residents of West Virginia. Confronted by emerging “clean coal” energy policies, local activists watch a world blind to the devastation caused by coal’s extraction. Faced with toxic ground water and the obliteration of 1.4 million acres of mountains, our heroes launch a valiant fight to arouse the nation’s help in protecting their mountains, saving their families, and preserving their way of life. 


I haven’t been able to attend the film series as I have a choir practice every Thursday night.  But I found the September film selection  “The End of Suburbia: Oil Depletion and the Collapse of the American Dream” on YouTube here
