Watt Watchers of Texas: Texas is Too Good To Waste™

Celebrating Earth Week 2024

April 17, 2024

As Earth Week approaches, communities around the globe are gearing up to celebrate the planet and to take meaningful action toward its protection and preservation. From April 14th to April 22nd, Earth Day will be commemorated worldwide with events and initiatives that aim to raise awareness and inspire action on environmental issues. This year, Earth Day's primary theme will center around combating the impacts of plastic pollution, emphasizing the urgent need for collective efforts to address pressing environmental challenges that require people to understand many different energy-related topics.

Gaining a holistic understanding of the world's energy and water systems, their relationship with human activities, and their influence on the environment is essential. Because of this, Resourcefulness will be celebrating Earth Week by partnering with Power Over Energy to provide a free screening of the award-winning documentary "Thirst for Power," which will be available on-demand throughout Earth Week, from April 22nd to April 28th, on the Resourcefulness website

"Thirst for Power," based on the book by Dr. Michael E. Webber, and powered by Itron, Inc. was produced by Alpheus Media, in partnership with The University of Texas at Austin and Disco Learning Media. The film offers a compelling exploration of the intricate relationship between energy, water, and human survival. Through a holistic lens, the documentary sheds light on the interdependence of these resources, underscoring the gravity of the challenges we face and presenting a hopeful array of solutions for a sustainable future.

In addition to the screening of "Thirst for Power," Earth Week 2024 will feature a series of events and activities organized by EARTHDAY.ORG to engage individuals, governments, institutions, and businesses in collective action. These virtual and in-person events will span different time zones, offering opportunities for people from all walks of life to participate and contribute to the global effort towards a greener, more equitable future.

As we celebrate Earth Week 2024 and reflect on the importance of protecting our planet, let us heed the call to action against plastic waste. By joining forces, raising awareness, and implementing sustainable solutions, we can work towards a future where the beauty and abundance of our planet are preserved for generations to come.
