Ashland – The Documentary Film & Discussion Series will present the film “Climate Change: Examining the Evidence” (56 min) Thursday, May 10, from 7 to 9 p.m., in the Ashland Public Library Community Room, 66 Front St., Ashland.

“Climate Change: Examining the Evidence” presents and examines evidence of human-induced climate change from the burning of fossil fuels. The 21st century has been marked by record-setting increases in global average temperature. Small increases in global average temperature have consequences on ecosystems and species. The film examines impacts on forests, oceans, the Arctic, Greenland Ice Sheet and permafrost.
The Documentary Film & Discussion Series meets every second Thursday and fourth Tuesday of the month for an in-depth look at important topics of our day. The moderated discussions are often lively and thought provoking. All points of view are welcomed. For more information, call the library at 508-881-0134 or visit www.friendsoftheapl.com.
