Paris to Pittsburgh
- Library Hall
Climate change is the most pressing issue of our time. From coastal cities to America’s heartland, Americans are demanding and developing real solutions in the face of climate change. And as the weather grows more deadly and destructive, they aren’t waiting on Washington to act. Learn about their incredible stories in Paris to Pittsburgh, and be inspired to create change.
Filmmakers Sidney Beaumont and Michael Bonfiglio share the stories of the local, private sector, and community leaders across the U.S. who are continuing to take action towards the Paris Agreement goals, regardless of federal inaction. The film brings to life the impassioned efforts of individuals who are battling the most severe threats of climate change in their own backyards. Set against the national debate over the United States’ energy future — and the Trump administration’s explosive decision to exit the Paris Climate Agreement — the film captures what’s at stake for communities around the country and the inspiring ways Americans are responding.
