WASHINGTON, D.C. - Congressman Robert C. "Bobby" Scott
(D-VA-03) will host a screening of the film "The Great
Warming" at the Mills E. Godwin Student Center, Ballroom
A, at Norfolk State University on Monday, July 31, 2006 at
6:30 p.m.

"The Great Warming" is a film that reveals how a
changing climate is affecting the lives of people all over
the world. The film includes commentary on global warming
from scientists, religious leaders, a former CIA chief, and
other opinion-makers. Endorsed by numerous environmental
groups, churches, and evangelical groups, the film is
significant not only for its content but for the way it
highlights the growing concern about global warming from
across the ideological spectrum.

Along with presenting strong scientific evidence about
global warming, the film also covers how evangelical
Christians and other people of faith are working with
secular advocacy groups and scientists to push
decision-makers to take action.

Following the film, Congressman Scott will lead a panel from
the science, environmental advocacy, and religious
communities in a discussion of the environmental and moral
implications of global warming on our community, our nation
and the planet.

"We can no longer ignore the evidence of the strains
mankind has placed on our fragile planet and we can no
longer put off the need to address this serious global
problem," said Rep. Scott.

The screening will be open to the public and will begin
promptly at 6:30 p.m.

Mosquito, were you able to attend this? If so, how did it go?

I wasn't able to go but I "heard" it went great....good audience. Folks came down from Richmond also. Folks spoke highly of Bobby Scott and he also took questions from folks.

If it's like any other event that I've been to where Bobby Scott has been I'm sure folks were very satisfied.
