Complementing the book Being the Change, this feature documentary film delves into the life of Caltech / Jet Propulsion Laboratory atmospheric scientist Peter Kalmus, showing how a change in life philosophy and mind frame enabled Kalmus to cut his fossil fuel use to 1/10th of the average American. He did all this while boosting his happiness and raising a family in a typical California suburb.

In the film, Kalmus reveals how he stopped trying to convert climate change deniers with facts and figures and instead embarked upon a mission to become the change he wanted to see in the world. Along the way, Kalmus shows how he brought together his head (the science), his hands (food growing, bicycling, and lifestyle change), and heart (meditation and community building), to find new direction in his life.

This free film screening is sponsored by Tri-Cities Citizens' Climate Lobby. We will have a discussion following the 60 minute documentary.
