‘Look Up!’ takes closer look at geoengineering

The Fourth Friday Film Forum will presents the documentary “Look Up!” this week. According to film organizers, climate engineering, also known as geoengineering, can be described as the deliberate large-scale modification of the earth’s climate systems for the purposes of counteracting and mitigating climate change. As this subject becomes the focus of more serious consideration and scrutiny within the scientific and policy communities, it is important to acknowledge that climate engineering carries with it not only possible benefits, but also an enormous range of uncertainties, ethical and political concerns, and the potential for harmful environmental and economic side-effects, according to the organizers.

The film “Look Up!” (60 minutes) is the “101” guide to the modern phenomenon of geoengineering. Nevada County resident, Lisa Thomas, has been studying geoengineering this past decade and will share the results of her research following the film. “Look Up!” is presented by the Peace and Justice Center of Nevada County and the UUCM Social Action, at 7 p.m. Friday at UUCM, 246 S. Church St., Grass Valley. There is a suggested donation $6-$10. Organic popcorn and treats will be available. A facilitated discussion will follow the film.
