Power to the People, a State of the Re:Union special from Ithaca

Jun 5, 2015

This Sunday, June 7, on Public Radio Presents, join us for a story from Ithaca.

The climate is going haywire, and politicians are bickering over what to do about it, or whether to do anything at all. But that’s only part of the story. Around the country, communities are taking matters into their own hands, publicly pledging to shrink their carbon footprints, then setting out to make good on their promises. Leading, they hope, from below.

In this hour, a tour of the uber-progressive but practical-minded town of Ithaca, New York, where citizens and civic leaders are hustling to wean themselves from fossil fuels. Through a series of connected stories, tinged with gentle humor, we look at the technical, political, physical, and emotional work involved in trying to steer the future in an environmentally responsible direction.

Join us this Sunday night, June 7, at 7 p.m.
