Burlingame Groups Offer Free Screening of "Before the Flood"

Screen Shot of Web Page on About Before the Flood

On Wednesday, May 3, the Citizens Environmental Council of Burlingame and the Burlingame High School (BHS) Parents’ Group will present a FREE screening of “Before the Flood,” which features Leonardo DiCaprio on an international journey as a United Nations “Messenger of Peace,” sounding the alarm about the growing climate crisis. He joins scientists on expeditions uncovering the reality of climate change, meets with political leaders fighting against inaction and discovers a disinformation campaign aimed at confusing the public. The program also will include BHS student Jeffery Chen’s video, “The Plastic Bottle Controversy Explained,” which recently was the Overall Festival Winner at the Clear the Air Filmfest. In addition, Phil Gregory of Burlingame law firm Cotchett, Pitre & McCarthy will speak briefly about a landmark lawsuit by 21 young people who are suing the U.S. government to take action on climate change. This program will take place from 7 to 9 p.m. in the auditorium at Burlingame High School, 1 Mangini Way, Burlingame. Admission is FREE.

BHS student Jeffrey Chen's video can be viewed HERE. For more information on the young people's lawsuit, click HERE. For more information on this event, visit cecburlingame.org or email info@cecburlingame.org.
