One Carbon Footprint at a Time

As discussions of the impact of climate change intensify around the world, many Americans are wondering if changes they make in their everyday lives can make a difference. The short answer, as vividly demonstrated in One Carbon Footprint At A Time, a new half hour documentary from award winning filmmaker Bob Gliner (Schools That Change Communities, Barefoot College) is that they can. As seen through the lens of a diverse range of university and middle school students enthusiastically engaged in a wide range of climate change activities as part of the curriculum at their schools – from analyzing the clothes they choose to buy and wear, to the food they grow and eat, to the energy used to power their cell phones, hair dryers and electricity in their homes, and the jobs and lifestyle changes they make after graduation – everyday actions play a critical and potentially inspirational role in impacting climate change.
