Garth Lenz, an internationally renowned, environmental photojournalist, is making a return visit to Davis. He will present his award-winning slide show talk on the Alberta Tar Sands, “The True Cost of Oil,” from 7 to 8:30 p.m. Tuesday, April 16, at the Stephens Branch Library, 315 E. 14th St.

A $10 donation is suggested to defray Lenz’s travel expenses, but no one will be turned away. Lenz spoke in Davis in January.

“Canada’s Tar Sands are perhaps the most visually compelling example of all that is wrong with our addiction to fossil fuels and why we must change or face dire consequences for all life on Earth,” Lenz says.

His TED talk on the Tar Sands has been visited more than 700,000 times; see it at http://www.ted.com/talks/garth_lenz_images_of_beauty_and_devastation.html.

Best known for his work presenting environmental and social justice issues, Lenz has photographed extensively throughout Canada’s temperate rainforest and boreal forests, gathering images that show the plight of the pristine Canadian boreal region and its people who are now confronted by a vast industrial project.

The Alberta Tar Sands are the third largest, most carbon-intensive oil reserves on the planet, and many believe their exploitation is a global threat to climate stability.

For those who have been curious about the Keystone XL Pipeline and the controversy over President Obama’s pending decision to approve it or not, this slide show allows viewers to see the actual mines and the areas affected by them, and provides an opportunity to enter into discussion with a well-informed Canadian.

Lenz’s appearance is sponsored by Cool Davis, the Church and Society Committee of the United Methodist Church of Davis and the Sierra Club Yolano Group.
