Gnomes and Brook Trout: Meaningful Climate Solutions in a Harsh World
A Presentation by Climate Change Activist Auden Schendler
Brook trout will lose more than three-quarters of their range in the West in the next 75 years due to climate change. Winter sports will see snowpack declines of up to half by end of century. And our next president denies that there’s a problem. But our future can still be prosperous. The outdoor industry has two choices: slowly watch our business and lifestyle disappear, or become a meaningful part of the climate solution, protecting our economies for the long term. Auden Schendler is Sustainability VP at Aspen Skiing Company and board chair at Protect Our Winters. A (mostly) reformed dirtbag and lifelong outdoorsman, he works on high leverage solutions to climate change.
