Alberni Valley Transition Town Society will screen the 44-minute documentary Do the Math on Thursday, Feb. 12 at 7 p.m. as part of Global Divestment Day, a new 350.org activism campaign.

“This is one of the best and most important films that has been made about climate change,” says AVTT representative John Mayba.

Originally shown across the U.S. on Al Jazeera America, Do the Math clearly lays out the problem and takes a realistic look at the solutions, highlighting fossil fuel divestment, as one of the main tools at our disposal to solve the problem of climate change, Mayba said.

The presentation takes place at Char’s Landing on Thursday at 7 p.m. Admission is free.
