Members of the Salisbury-Rowan community are invited to join faculty, staff and students at Catawba College for a free showing of "An Inconvenient Truth, a Global Warning" at 7 p.m. Friday, February 2. The film will be shown in Tom Smith Auditorium of the Ralph W. Ketner Building on campus.

"An Inconvenient Truth, A Global Warning" is a documentary in support of Al Gore's campaign to make the issue of global warming a recognized problem worldwide. It intertwines simple, but harrowing statistics with personal reflections, and explains tools and methods which could be used to reverse the damage already done to the environment.

The free showing of the film, which has been nominated for an Academy Award for Best Documentary, is sponsored by NatureSAFE, a student organization on campus. NatureSAFE is an environmental club which focuses on the care and nurturing of the environment.
