The National Geographic film “Paris to Pittsburgh” will be shown April 22 at 5:30 p.m. in the Trabant Theatre on the Newark campus. A faculty panel will lead a discussion to follow. The event is free and open to the public. Set against the national debate over the United States’ energy future — and the explosive decision to exit the Paris Climate Agreement — the film captures what’s at stake for communities around the country and the inspiring ways Americans are responding. The Earth Day event is co-sponsored by the Energy and Environmental Policy Student Association, the Climate Reality Project @ UD, and the Delaware Environmental Institute.
