The Maine Sierra Club continues its Penobscot Bay Film Series with a screening of “The Wisdom to Survive: Climate Change, Capitalism & Community” Monday, Nov. 23, at 6 p.m. in the Abbott Room of Belfast Free Library, 106 High St.

The 2013 documentary film accepts the consensus of scientists that climate change has already arrived and asks, what is keeping us from action? The film explores how unlimited growth and greed are destroying the life support system of the planet, the social fabric of the society and the lives of billions of people.

“The Wisdom to Survive” features thought leaders and activists in the realms of science, economics and spirituality discussing how we can evolve and take action in the face of climate disruption. Among those featured are Bill McKibben, Joanna Macy, Roger Payne, Richard Heinberg, Gus Speth, Stephanie Kaza, Nikki Cooley and Ben Falk.

Post-film discussion will be led by WERU News & Public Affairs Manager Amy Browne, who is at the forefront of day-to-day news about Penobscot Bay and its connectivity with the rest of the world. Admission is free. For more information, call 761-5616; email; or visit
