“This Changes Everything” Movie
The Coastal Senior College’s events committee will show the just-released in DVD film “This Changes Everything,” on Thursday, Feb. 11 at 1:30 in Skidompha Library’s Porter Meeting Room in Damariscotta. Based on Naomi Klein’s international bestselling book addressing the challenge of climate change, it was filmed in nine countries over four years and presents portraits of communities on the front lines, from Montana’s Powder River Basin to the Alberta Tar Sands, from the coast of South India to Beijing and beyond. As daunting a challenge as climate change is, her conclusion is that the crisis is an opportunity to transform what she views as failed economic systems.

We are a group of professionals, business persons, public officials and other citizens from the Damariscotta area of Midcoast Maine who have joined together to promote a sustainable, socially responsible and balanced economy built on the production of goods, rather than just services, retail sales, and tourism. We believe that the best way to begin to achieve this is by addressing the problems of threatening climate change, oil dependency, food supply, and the rising cost of energy.
For more information on the focus and direction we are currently taking, please read this document: Working to make Damariscotta an alternative energy center and creating well paying jobs in the process.
