AGAINST THE WIND SCREENING AND PANEL DISCUSSION SEPT. 15 - The Environmental Action Committee is partnering with the Climate+Energy Project, the Sustainable Sanctuary Coalition and Kansas Interfaith Power & Light to screen the video Against the Wind, which tells the story of the robust growth of the Kansas wind industry despite attacks by the state legislature. The screening will be from 7-9 p.m. Monday, Sept. 15 in Room 133 at Village Church.
In the video, correspondent America Ferrera interviews rancher Pete Farrell and wind lobbyist Kimberly Gencur Svaty. Farrell’s ranch in south-central Kansas is home to one of the state’s first wind farms. Svaty (owner/principle of Gencur Svaty Public Affairs) is policy and advocacy director for The Wind Coalition. She is also a long time member of Village Church.
The screening will be followed by a panel discussion, which includes Farrell and Svaty, as well as Dr. Johannes Feddema and Rabbi Moti Rieber. Feddema (a KU geography professor) is a contributor to the International Panel on Climate Change. Rieber (director of Kansas Interfaith Power & Light) has lobbied and testified before the Kansas Legislature, providing a faith perspective about the economic and ethical benefits of renewable energy.
