Houston Green Film Series: From the Ashes

Date: Wed, 09/20/2017
Location: Rice Media Center (2030 University Blvd, 77005)

Air Alliance Houston, with support from National Geographic, is sponsoring this month’s featured green film: the documentary,”From The Ashes.”

What is the true cost of coal?

From the Ashes explores the complexities of the coal industry and its impact on the environment, economy and public health,” said Tim Pastore, president of original programming and production for National Geographic channels.

This film goes beyond the rhetoric of the “war on coal” to present compelling and often-heartbreaking stories about what is at stake for our economy, health and climate. With 7,500 U.S. deaths from coal pollution each year, the film invites audiences to learn more about this dying industry and how it impacts their everyday lives.

Following the film we have a panel discussion on the War on Coal with:

Elmer B. Ledesma
Associate Professor
Department of Chemistry and Physics
University of St. Thomas

Jen Powis
Environmental Attorney
The Powis Firm
