We feel stuck

Interviewees (among many others)
Climate skeptic port director that speared hundreds of millions of climate adaptation
Solutions moderate that spent 30 years working for Chevron
Church leaders in flood ravaged reason, building the countries first resilience hub
Ex-O&G employee with a family business installing solar
Sam & Vince
Tech founders in SF building the future of at home climate solutions
Neither of us actually do this as our full time jobs.
We were just extremely and unusually nerdsniped about this topic for a year, and felt like we had to make this film.
Anson is an agent of chaos. She has worked on a wide array of software products, hired teams at a venture fund, worked on safety infrastructure at a car-free city, and farmed virality for a super PAC. She is current studying engineering at the University of Waterloo and will be working on nuclear fusion. She is interested in the history of technology, and how to expand the realm of what is possible in the name of human agency and fairness.
Special talent: Can sleep anywhere
Lyn spent her education and early career working on biology and healthcare. Recently, curiosity & frustration have pulled her towards human-first climate solutions. She is now the founder of parachute.earth, where she applies her background in research to tell real, evidence-based stories about climate solutions. Prior, she was the Strategic Director for the UCLA Center for Healthy Climate Solutions, where she translated academic research into real-world solutions.
Special talent: Can listen to an infinite amount of true crime (It's disturbing -Anson)
But it takes a village to produce a documentary. A shoutout to some of our amazing advisors
