On Sunday October 30, 9 PM EST, Leonardo DiCaprio's film Before The Flood will screen free online as well as on National Geographic. The film explores the causes and impacts of climate change, arguing for urgent action and a rapid transition off fossil fuels.

It will be streamed all week on Facebook, Youtube, Hulu, Playstation, and can be viewed on demand on Apple iTunes, Amazon, and GooglePlay. Here's more details on how to see the film and here's the trailer:

I was invited to contribute to Beforetheflood.com, debunking some of the most common myths about climate change. Here are my pages on Leonardo DiCaprio's site:

         97% of climate scientists agree that humans are causing global warming (debunking the myth that "scientists don't agree").

         Our planet is warming at a rate of 4 atomic bombs per second (debunking the myth that "we're in a period of cooling").

         Climate patterns confirm humans are causing global warming (debunking the myth that "solar flares are to blame").

         Climate change is having negative impacts on all parts of society (debunking the myth that "climate change is no big deal").

         We have all the technology we need to solve climate change (debunking the myth that "there's nothing we can do")

We also embedded some key Denial101x videos in the debunkings, such as Consensus of Scientists and Daily & Yearly Cycle.

Beforetheflood.com is a rich website definitely worth exploring, with great info such as Brendan DeMelle's The Climate Denial Industry. I'm looking forward to watching the film on Monday...
