Kids Sue Florida Over Climate Change, Archaeoastronomy & Ruth Bader Ginsburg Documentary

May 10, 2018

Sundial guests for Thursday, May 10, 2018:

Delaney Reynolds is an 18-year-old college freshman at University of Miami's Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science and a climate activist. Delaney is the lead youth in the Reynolds v. State of Florida case, a lawsuit introduced by 18 Florida kids and teens against the state and Gov. Rick Scott over climate change.

Guy Burns is the head attorney for the young plaintiffs and a lawyer based in Tampa. Reynolds and Burns talk to Sundial about the fight to educate people on climate change and their hopes for a "climate recovery plan" to cut greenhouse gas emissions.

Mallory Fenn is the Outreach Coordinator for the Florida Public Archeology Network and her focus is on “archeoastronomy,” the study of how ancient civilizations understood the stars. On Sundial, Fenn explains archeoastronomy and how researchers now use it to understand the development of ancient civilizations in Florida.

Fenn will be giving a talk tonight in Greynolds Park at the Boathouse about South Florida’s rich archeological history.

Filmmakers Betsy West and Julie Cohen are the directors and producers of  “RBG,” the Ruth Bader Ginsburg Documentary. They joined Sundial from NPR's New York City studios to discuss the making of the documentary, Justice Ginsburg life and how she became an icon for equal rights for women.

The movie will debut in South Florida theatres on May 11:

MIAMI: O Cinema Miami Beach, MDC’s Tower Theater, AMC Aventura 24, AMC Sunset Place 24, Regal South Beach
