Only In Nevada City a Climate Change Film Festival in a Cooling World

Running to catch up, the theme of the 2013 Wild and Scenic Film Festival will be “A Climate of Change” An appropriate theme in the 1990s, but now the world is cooling and the festival folks are worried about anthropogenic warming.
From the Wild and Scenic Festival Web Site:
Despite the 90 degree temperatures, it feels to us like January and the 2013 Wild & Scenic Film Festival are just around the corner. We are busy watching films, creating workshops, inviting special guests, and much more. And we are excited to announce the theme for the 2013 festival is…. “A Climate of Change”.
While not all content will directly connect to the theme, you can expect to see a number of films, special guests, events, workshops, art and more that will provide insight and commentary on issues of climate change. At Wild & Scenic we focus on the people, organizations, and communities that are providing solutions and forward-thinking to our most pressing problems. Consistent with that focus, we will highlight the people and actions that are creating “a climate of change”, in which we can collectively make the dramatic global advancements that need to happen in response to climate change.
I guess that the Festival organizers are unaware that there has not been any global warming climate change for the past 15 years, even though the global CO2 emissions have increased at a steady rate, and has declined to 1990 levels in the United States as the economy tanks.
Climate change is not our most pressing problem. Our most pressing problem in 2013 will be economic recovery.
