Pollock Theater, UCSB

The event is free, but a reservation is required.

The Carsey-Wolf Center and Summer Sessions is proud to present an episode of Showtime's groundbreaking series, Years of Living Dangerously. We are honored to be able to screen The Surge, which follows MSNBC's Chris Hayes as he shadows  the climate change skeptic, Republican Congressman Michael Grimm, for a year in Staten Island in the wake of Superstorm Sandy. The episode also features conservationist M. Sanjayan as he travels to the ends of the earth-including Christmas Island-to question some of the world's top climate scientists.

The series just received two 2014 Emmy nominations (Outstanding Documentary Or Nonfiction Series and Outstanding Writing for Nonfiction Programming).  Senior Producer and 2014 Emmy nominee, Adam Bolt, will be joining us for a post screening Q&A. There will also be a reception in the Michael Douglas Lobby after the event.
