Paris to Pittsburgh Film Screening Photos

Thank you for joining us at the Screening of Paris to Pittsburgh on May 29th!

From coastal cities to America’s heartland, Paris to Pittsburgh celebrates how 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.

“Paris to Pittsburgh shines a light on the many forgotten communities and people who have been affected by climate change in our country, as well as solutions for how we can fight back and reduce our carbon footprint. I’m proud to be part of this poignant and powerful documentary, and admire the pro-active approach Bloomberg Philanthropies has taken with this project and this issue; we need meaningful change.” – Rachel Brosnahan

We had a wonderful panel discussion with Michael Kadish, Executive Director Grid Alternatives, Carter Rubin, Mobility and Climate Advocate at NRDC and Garrett Wong, City of Santa Monica Senior Sustainability Analyst will follow the film.

The panel was moderated by Dr. Juliette Finzi Hart, Oceanographer and Director of Outreach at the Pacific Coastal & Marine Science Center at the USGS.
