Purple Mountains is a documentary featuring Jeremy Jones, a graduate of Carrabassett Valley Academy (ME), a North Tahoe local, iconic snowboarder, mountaineer, and founder of Protect Our Winters. Jeremy makes a strong case for finding common ground with those we think disagree with us about climate change. Along the way he makes the case for policy, not individual sustainability actions, as the necessary approach to addressing the climate crisis.
Discussion will center around the following questions:
- Why are we as a country so divided on climate change?
- How do we find common ground?
- What effective policies may be acceptable to legislators on both sides?
