‘Before the Flood’ Screening at UUF

Before the Flood, the powerful new documentary about climate change from Martin Scorsese, Leonardo DiCaprio and the National Geographic, will have its Door County premiere on Dec. 7, 7 pm, at Unitarian Universalist Fellowship, 10341 Hwy. 42, Ephraim.

“As a UN Messenger of Peace, I have been traveling all over the world for the last two years documenting how this crisis is changing the natural balance of our planet,” DiCaprio told the signature ceremony for the Paris Agreement. “I have seen cities like Beijing choked by industrial pollution. In India I met farmers whose crops have literally been washed away by historic flooding. In America I have witnessed unprecedented droughts in California and sea level rise flooding the streets of Miami. In Greenland and in the Arctic I was astonished to see that ancient glaciers are rapidly disappearing well ahead of scientific predictions. All that I have seen and learned on this journey has terrified me.

“There is no doubt in the world’s scientific community that this is a direct result of human activity and that the effects of climate change will become astronomically worse in the future.”

In Before the Flood, DiCaprio and filmmaker Fisher Stevens have crafted an urgent message about climate change and the steps we must take to address it. Stella Maris Catholic Parish’s Care of Our Common Home Committee and the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship present this screening in collaboration with the Climate Change Coalition of Door County. The public is cordially invited to this free program.
