Concerned about climate change, families unite

first_imgThey came together four months ago from all over the San Fernando Valley, parents bound by concern about how climate change will affect their children. “I think a lot of the global movement so far has been focused on college students and a lot of Hollywood celebrities, but that hasn’t made it real for people,” said Miki Kim, a member of the grass-roots Families Against Climate Crisis. “We’re just a lot of Joe Normal families who are busy, who have jobs and kids and mortgages like many families across the country, but we have to take the time to set an example.” The group has created a Web site – www.thefaccs.org – with energy-conservation and environmental tips. If you go “An Inconvenient Truth” will be screened at 1 p.m. today at Emerson Unitarian Universalist Church, 7304 Jordan Ave., Canoga Park. Free admission.

And today, the group is hosting a screening of “An Inconvenient Truth,” the Oscar-winning documentary by former Vice President Al Gore, followed by presentations at the Emerson Unitarian Universalist Church, where they are all members. “We want families to be aware of the issues so that they’re not looking at their kids years from now and saying `I’m really sorry,”‘ Kim said. “I think we can really get the word out,” said FACC member Spike Dolomite Ward. “We’re not tree huggers. We’re not hippies, and I think that’s why the messages are being dismissed. We’re just moms and dads.” susan.abram@dailynews.com (818) 713-3664 last_img
