Trees: The Best Technology for Fighting Climate Change! @ Strawberry Hill Center
Apr 23 @ 10:00 am – 12:00 pm

By Olaf Ribeiro

Bainbridge Island Metro Park & Recreation District

When people talk about technologies that might offset climate change, they often evoke complex and expensive methods that are just too expensive for most cities, or individuals to implement. However, there is a comparatively low cost method with little risk that can effect climate change –one that all of us can easily participate in. It is called Trees! Planting trees remains one of the cheapest and most effective means of removing excess carbon dioxide from the atmosphere (Carbon sequestration).

One tree shading a home in the city will save fossil fuel and cut carbon dioxide reducing the “Greenhouse Effect”. A single mature tree can absorb carbon dioxide @ 48 lbs/year and release enough oxygen into the atmosphere to support 2 human beings. If every American family planted just one tree, the amount of CO2 in the atmosphere would be reduced by one billion lbs. annually.

These are just some of the effects of planting trees that will be discussed in this talk as well as what efforts are taking place globally to save trees – and to plant more trees to mitigate climate change.

Just Eat It: A Food Waste Story @ Bainbridge Public Library
Apr 24 @ 1:30 pm – 3:30 pm

This is a terrific film documenting a couple’s efforts to eat only food that’s been thrown away. It turns out to be surprisingly easy, which is a sad statement about how much food we throw away.

I highly recommend this movie.

This is a Zero Waste sponsored film at the Bainbridge Public Library, April 24 at 1:30pm.

The Salt of the Earth @ Bainbridge Island Community Center
Apr 27 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm

The Bainbridge Island Photo Club presents The Salt of the Earth: The Photo Work of Brazilian Sabastiao Selgado. An Academy Award nominee for Best Documentary shows Selgado’s work in documenting the human condition around the world. His high contrast black and white images are rich in the powerful stories they tell, their textural qualities and their composition. This is “A Must See” film. This film will be shown in support of Earth Art Bainbridge, an April 2016 arts festival raising awareness about climate change through art.

The Photo Club will also be showing 16 photos of Selgado’s photography in the main hall of the BI Community Center during the month of April. The club will discuss how this photographer has helped get the ideas across, in his art, of man’s impact on the environment, the raw beauty of our planet, and his personal journey in support of healing the planet.

Artifact Pattern: A performance prose poem @ Bainbridge Island Museum of Art
Apr 30 @ 7:30 pm – 9:00 pm

Janet Norman Knox’s performance prose poem, Artifact Pattern, examines the Alaskan Way Viaduct as a way to observe humanity’s take on climate change. In collaboration with musician Tom McDonald, Knox uses the humor and heaviness of a viaduct and climate in flux to weigh in on what both tell us about ourselves. Built on giant carbon feet, the viaduct’s very cement is a massive carbon sink. The viaduct is our Roman aqueduct, sending carbon like water to quench the empire’s power thirst. The viaduct is lodged in geologic history like a receding glacier. It occupies the same footprint as the fingers of glaciers that retreated, dropping their erratics, sands, and gravels. There are many facts to connect and our very human brains want to recognize the patterns in poetry, in music, in the quandaries of a society speeding headlong into an uncertainty where we may find ourselves.
