You are cordially invited to a screening of the new documentary “Scaling Wind” by award winning local filmmakers Ed Stafford and Cathy Hartman onWednesday, December 4th from 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm at the First Presbyterian Church in Logan. (This screening is free and open to the public. No registration required.)Their first documentary on wind energy, “Wind Uprising,” received critical acclaim from energy experts and film makers across America.
Clean renewable wind energy is one of the fastest growing energy sources in the country. “Scaling Wind” shows the economic, environmental and energy security benefits wind power is bringing to America and overviews how America may procure 20 percent of its electricity from clean, price stable wind power. The film features comments from former President George W. Bush, former Utah Governor Jon Huntsman, Montana Governor Brian Schweitzer and Iowa Governor Terry Branstad, along with energy analysts, business developers, wind and renewables advocates and policymakers. The film explains how smart, stable policy and transmission development can help America achieve 20 percent wind power. Dr. Stafford and Dr. Hartman are marketing professors at USU’s Huntsman School of Business. An interactive discussion will follow.
Following the “Scaling Wind” presentation, a twenty minute plenary speech entitled “100% Clean Energy For and By the People” from the national Bioneers Sustainability Conference, held in October of this year, will be presented. The speaker is Billy Parish, a young change-maker who shows how we can totally shift from fossil fuels to clean, renewable energy within a generation. This dynamic young man, a Yale dropout turned entrepreneur, founded the company Solar Mosaic which is employing revolutionary crowd funding techniques to democratize investment opportunities and spread distributed energy. An interactive discussion will follow.
You will enjoy this upbeat, informative evening on renewable energy. Bring your friends and colleagues.
