One year ago today Hurricane Sandy hit. A superstorm amped up by a warming climate.
On this day we have to remember those who died and those who lost everything.
But more than just remembrance, we have to realize what it means.
We have to end our dependency on fossil fuels.
Unless we shift to renewables, events like Sandy will become more and more common
and our civilization will rush into one state of emergency after another.
Please take a look at my short film, made a few weeks after Sandy hit last year
and take a moment to contemplate. The film features Bill McKibben, Occupy Sandy volunteers and
many brave and inspiring victims of the storm.
But don’t just click and move on. Take action now.
Of course, we’re known for our feature films like GASLAND I and II but our short projects, which are always independent and not funded by a major studio, are sometimes just as important. We will continue to make new work and share it with you here on our blog. We will also feature blogposts from folks around the world that are fighting against fracking that we think will inspire you.
Our blog and short works need funding. Please donate so that we can continue to make short films like Occupy Sandy in the future.
We are striving to continue to bring you this reporting
