At Mountainfilm, we believe that climate change is one of the most critical issues of our time. We also believe in grassroots movements and have spent nearly four decades sharing and celebrating their powerful stories. This is The New Normal, and we invite you to help shape it. Toward this end, we encourage you to take action on our five key initiatives.
Read books, listen to podcasts or watch films about the latest science and the most innovative solutions surrounding climate change. Calculate your carbon footprint, and identify areas of emissions you could improve in your life.
Reduce your overall energy use with measures like carpooling, unplugging your appliances, adjusting your thermostat carefully, air-drying clothes, insulating your home, reusing bottles and bags, and signing up for initiatives such as EcoAction Partners' Greenlights program.
Offset your energy use by investing in renewable power initiatives, such as San Miguel Power Association's Green Blocks program.
Show your support for an increase in renewable energy: Along with working on your own carbon neutrality, advocate for the policies and infrastructure to support renewable energy on a local and state level. For this round of the New Normal, we invite you to support the development of a new Telluride-area community solar farm by signing the San Miguel Power Association Community Solar Power Pledge.
Tell your friends, spread the word, initiate projects and encourage action in your community.
