Coming this Winter

Impetus

 

Large transformational investments are required in energy, transportation and agriculture in order to solve climate change. These are unlikely to happen in good time without greater civic engagement. The actions of individuals, businesses and communities matter, and have only gained relevance as the US government prepares to withdraw from the Paris Agreement.  

The story of how ski towns are coping with warmer winters is a microcosm of the global climate crisis. On the sidelines of skiing and snowboarding, an epic struggle to reverse rising temperatures has been unfolding. It is a moving story that is simultaneously sobering, refreshing and empowering. It has the potential to reach the hearts and minds of millions of people and be a much needed impetus for positive change.
