Climate Change: the Great Challenge is the second of the films selected by National Geographic for the MAST Foundation for the Anthropocene exhibition ongoing in these months. The effects of climate change are becoming increasingly evident. The stakes are getting higher and higher. But what are we really doing to counter this phenomenon? Climate Change: the Great Challenge shows the social and economic effects caused by disasters related to global warming, but also highlights the protests and initiatives taken to reduce carbon dioxide emissions. At a time of great debate over the United States’ exit from the Paris climate agreement, the documentary shows how people, businesses and entire cities are strongly committed to this fight. The starting point for the story is Pittsburgh, a city that was heavily dependent on the coal industry in the past. When President Trump announced the United States’ withdrawal from the global Paris agreement, the city’s mayor, Bill Peduto, affirmed his commitment to ambitious energy efficiency goals.
