How to Boil A Frog

Long time friend of DeSmogBlog, Jon Cooksey, was a clueless man (his words not mine) before he started work on his eco-comedy How to Boil a Frog, uncovering a bigger picture of global warming than he’d orignally anticipated.

Approaching topics like overpopulation, peak oil and dimishing natural resources, Jon’s movie focuses on “solutions, the psychology of change and the bigger picture of potentiation and blowback” while using humour to drive in the point.

Sneak preview of the movie is Sat. Aug. 8 at 1:30pm (doors open at 12:30pm) at Pacific Cinematheque - 1131 Howe St. Vancouver -  and is free.
