Climate Change and the Eastern Shore: Talbot Rising Presents “Before the Flood” July 22


Nothing is more precious than the earth we call home. Yet few of us fully grasp the extent of the climate challenges we face globally and locally.

Talbot Rising will host at the Talbot County Public Library 5:30-7:30 p.m., Monday, July 22, a showing of the award-winning Scorsese documentary “Before the Flood” narrated by Leonardo DiCaprio.

The Los Angeles Times called the film “neither dull screed nor stat-heavy pamphlet, thanks largely to the questing intensity of its marquee guide.”

Mary Helen Gillen of Pickering Creek Audubon will walk us through how each of us can personally help mitigate what we are facing and start to build a local wave of commitment. This event will highlight not just our climate challenges but also offer a hopeful path toward meeting them.

 “This documentary is our wake-up call,” said Grace Soltis of Talbot Rising. “If we heed the science, and take decisive action now, we have the means to address climate change starting with personal action, then building community resolve to support climate solutions. Together we can do great things.”
