The Power of Us: Confronting Our Climate Crisis

The climate crisis is a problem affecting people of all ages — and it needs an intergenerational, collaborative movement to fight it.

82-year-old retired Chicagoland engineer Jim Goodman and his wife Annie are alarmed about the climate change crisis, and know their generation has failed to adequately address it. With the environmental clock ticking, the Goodmans enlist the aid of some equally concerned young people, from those directly impacted by climate change’s disastrous impacts to those that are coming up with their own innovative solutions. The Power of Us underscores the urgency of the crisis and shows the power of an intergenerational climate movement, with youth leading the charge into the future.
