A Climate Conversation gets standing ovations at its sold-out screening
Several hundred Front Rangers packed Rockleys Event Center in Lakewood on Thursday night to watch a sneak preview of A Climate Conversation, the new documentary from fifth-generation Coloradan geophysicist Walter Johnson and Denver-based filmmaker Colton Moyer.
Attendees enjoyed a social hour before the screening and a panel conversation featuring all the scientists and subject matter experts who appeared in the film. The film and the panel received standing ovations, and it was clear that people were hungry for an approach to climate change that avoids rhetoric in favor of the scientific method.
A Climate Conversation is the brainchild of Johnson, who self-funded the film with money from his retirement account. “Something told me I just had to make a film. No one reads books about climate change, but people need to know the real facts,” said Johnson at the event. Johnson got support from The Heartland Institute, a national non-profit research organization whose mission is to discover, develop and promote free-market solutions to social and economic problems.
The promoters of the firm made it clear that the film was not targeted at either extreme of the climate debate, but instead seeks to promote a consensus based on shared values of
environmentalism and humanitarian compassion. It was clear from the size and enthusiasm of the crowd that this type of approach is long overdue.
A Climate Conversation will make its worldwide debut on Newsmax on Sunday, October 15th at 7 p.m. MST.
