GLOBAL WARMING: "We Can Fix This," Says "Deep Green" Filmmaker Matt Briggs
PORTLAND, Ore. --(Business Wire)--
It must be real when the world's most distinguished global warming
authority - the United Nations' Intergovernmental Panel for Climate
Change (IPCC), comprised of scientists from around the world -
unanimously agrees that if carbon emissions are not slashed by 40% to
70% in the next 15 years, life as we know it will be over within this

"Acid-choked oceans, spreading desertification, routine flooding,
explosive forest fires, the extinction of over half of all living
species, cities swallowed by rising seas, record-breaking storms, deadly
health threats, conflicts over scarce food and water - the list goes
on," warns filmmaker/activist Matt Briggs, whose award-winning
documentary, "Deep Green," has been called a template for getting off
fossil fuels by the Los Angeles Times.
How do we get the job done? "We know that 75% of global warming is the
direct result of human activity - and we know how to fix it. The fact
is, we can't wait to find out if there will be an international treaty
next year, or if Congress will finally enact the legislation that is
desperately needed. It really comes down to what each person and each
community can do," says Briggs, who spent more than two decades studying
the issue before embarking on a three-year $2.5 million quest to nine
countries (including China) to uneath the world's best solutions.

GREEN" online for just the cost of streaming ($1.99).
As a follow-up to his film, Briggs has now launched the Deep
Green Global Warming Action Project. The free curated
online archive includes his recently released details of the first year
of his Ten
Year Global Warming Action Plan. An invaluable roadmap through
the clutter and disinformation that can overwhelm even informed
citizens, the first year of the plan, among other things, shows users
how to cut their electric load by 20% or more (and 100% of the carbon
electricity on their bills) in just one afternoon.
"If every person and business in the USA did this, it would close over
50% of the electric coal plants in the United States in one day," Briggs
Deep Green Action Plan supplies lots of resources and puts the
movie solutions into practice one person, one community at a time."

Action Project are just a click away: View a video
