CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. – The Fulton Center for Sustainable Living at Wilson College and the college Environmental Club are sponsoring a “Green Energy and You” film series this fall. All films are free and open to the public. Showings will be held at 7 p.m. Fridays in Warfield Hall’s Allen Auditorium.

Films and dates are as follows:

Friday, Sept. 17 – “Kilowatt Ours: A Plan to Re-Energize America”

This award-winning “Kilowatt Ours” provides a timely, solutions-oriented look at one of America’s most pressing environmental challenges – energy. Filmmaker Jeff Barrie offers hope as he turns the camera on himself and asks, “How can I make a difference?” In his journey, he explores the sources of America’s electricity and the problems caused by energy production, including mountaintop removal, childhood asthma and global warming. Along the way he encounters individuals, businesses, organizations and communities that are leading the way, using energy conservation, efficiency and renewable, green power – all while saving money and the environment.

Friday, Oct. 22 – “Green: The New Red, White and Blue”

In this film, New York Times columnist Thomas Friedman travels the globe to unravel the tangled web of where we get our energy and what we can do to change its effects on the planet. He visits the front lines of a revolution that is just now taking shape, and shows what is at stake for all of us.

Friday, Nov. 19 – “Saved by the Sun”

As the earth heats up at a dangerous rate and fossil fuels become scarcer, ordinary citizens and businesses are bypassing the federal government to lead the way in exploring a clean, renewable source of power - the sun. In this film - originally broadcast as a segment of the PBS show, Nova - shines a light on how and why people across America and the world are "going solar," using radiant energy of the sun to power homes, businesses and even entire communities.
