Join UNC-TV and the North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences for a free preview screening of “Powering the Planet,” the second installment in the EARTH: The Operators’ Manual mini-series. The free screening on Thursday, March 8 at 7pm, will be followed by an informative and exciting panel discussion.

In “Powering the Planet,” seven fast-paced segments present memorable stories taped worldwide in Denmark, Brazil, China, Morocco, Spain, Scotland and all across the United States, presenting case studies of what’s gone right and wrong with energy policies, and the consequences of bad choices. The program explores the promise of renewable energy options, and the different ways nations are approaching the coming global energy transformation.

The panel discussion starts at 8pm. Panel members are: Art Howard, Director of Photography for EARTH: The Operators’ Manual; Tommy Cleveland, Solar Engineer, North Carolina State University; and Katie Shepherd, Marketing and Communications Manager, NC GreenPower.

Doors open at 6pm and refreshments will be available for purchase. RSVPs are requested. Please RSVP to Miranda Wood, miranda.wood@naturalsciences.org.
