Saving Snow

This is a documentary on addressing the carbon footprint of one of the biggest carbon polluters that is most affected by their own pollution: The ski industry.

If you are in the Twin Cities, come by Davanni’s in Plymouth (on Harbor) on February 27th, 7:00 PM to see the movie. I don’t think it is on Netflix or Amazon now. (I assume we are getting some sort of special showing?)

Have you read the breakthrough novel of the year? When you are done with that, try:

In Search of Sungudogo by Greg Laden, now in Kindle or Paperback

  1. Ski areas are “one of the biggest carbon polluters ” because some people use jets to get to Aspen? Seriously?

    1. How about hyperbole? Does that use a huge amount of carbon? Just wondering, as I seem to have lost my bearings.

  2. yeah- I get it. But then many destination style recreational pursuits are going to be up there on their carbon footprint as well – fly in to your cruise ship? Drive a thousand miles to climb Yosemite? to run whitewater? Whale watch? Music festival?

    The wealthy [which in relationship to the rest of the world includes ‘middle class’ America] use a far disproportionate share of the world’s resources and add disproportionately to global warming. That is an indictment of a consumptive based culture- I am guessing the ski industry is not an outsized contributor to that.

    FWIW- Aspen ski Co was one of the first to sound a corporate alarm re climate warming many years ago- they have the snow level records for many years and it is obvious they are in a niche with no real long term future . And the town of Aspen does encourage bus ridership – I used it to hit the slopes maybe 25% of the time I lived there.
