Heat waves. Polar vortexes. Unprecedented storms. Extreme weather is now a common topic of conversation. How is a changing climate impacting our communities as it alters life on Earth? Join us for a screening of Cooked: Survival by Zip Code, by Peabody-award winning filmmaker Judith Helfand, on the 1995 Chicago heat wave and how we think of disaster preparedness. The screening will take place at 5:30 PM and will be followed by light refreshments. A panel discussion begins at 7:30 PM with:
 
    Judith Helfand, fillmmaker 
    Richard Keller, author of Fatal Isolation: The Devastating Paris Heat Wave of 2003
    Heather Swan, author of Where Honeybees Thrive
    Charles Tubbs Sr, Director of Dane County Emergency Management
    Dan Vimont, director of the Nelson Institute's Center for Climatic Research
 
The panel will be moderated by Wisconsin Public Radio's Steve Paulson.
