The Peace & Justice Center presents “Greedy Lying Bastards” at 7 p.m. Friday at The Open Book, 671 Maltman Drive, Grass Valley

The documentary is about climate change and the efforts to deny it exists.

According to the event organizers, the evidence is clear: Melting sea ice, glacier loss and rising sea levels. Severe droughts and wildfires. Increasingly severe tornadoes, hurricanes, and flooding. Record heat waves. Climate change is no longer a prediction for the future, but a startling reality of today. “Greedy Lying Bastards” investigates the climate change misinformation campaign waged by the oil industry and its funded think tanks despite consensus in the scientific community that global warming is not only a reality but a growing problem placing us on the brink of disaster. The film exposes how a small number of well paid spokespeople have worked to confuse the public and lawmakers on the issue. Both ExxonMobil and Koch Industries are identified in the film as two of the worst culprits funding the denial campaign. In addition to exposing the denial campaign, “Greedy Lying Bastards” tells the stories of those currently impacted by changing climate. A discussion will follow the film. $6-$10 suggested donation. Beverages and treats will be available. For more information visit the Peace Center’s website at ncpeace.org,or email ncpeace@sbcglobal.net
