Important Oregon Coast Science, Nature Events Begin This Month

(Oregon Coast) – Some stellar nature and science events will be taking place this month in two places along the Oregon coast: in Newport and in Cannon Beach. One city has announced its truly engaging lecture series lineup for the year, while another offers a screening of a science documentary crucial to the times we live in.

In Newport, the Hatfield Student Organization and the Newport Chapter of Surfrider Foundation are hosting a screening of An Inconvenient Sequel on Thursday, November 9. It starts at 6 p.m. in the Hatfield Marine Science Visitor Center.

This is a must-see, powerful documentary. A decade after An Inconvenient Truth (2006) brought climate change into the heart of popular culture comes the follow-up that shows just how close we are to a real energy revolution.

The reception to follow will feature a discussion of local climate change issues with experts from the Newort community. Admission is free with a suggested donation. Donations will benefit the Newport Chapter of Surfrider Foundation. 2030 SE Marine Science Dr, Newport, Oregon. 541) 867-0100.

About An Inconvenient Sequel: Former Vice President Al Gore continues his tireless fight, traveling around the world training an army of climate champions and influencing international climate policy. Cameras follow him behind the scenes - in moments both private and public, funny and poignant - as he pursues the inspirational idea that while the stakes have never been higher, the perils of climate change can be overcome with human ingenuity and passion.
