Climate Change & Racism – with Actor & Activist Tim Guinee
Climate Change & Racism is a topic that fascinates me and rarely if ever are they connected. How does climate change and related environmental issues affect black people and people of color in America? Does it affect them differently than others? Join us today as we explore this topic in depth with actor and environmental activist Tim Guinee.
In 2020, Tim Guinee was awarded the prestigious Alfredo Sirkis Memorial Green Ring Award by former Vice-President Al Gore. He has given presentations on the climate-crisis all over the United States as well as in Canada and North Africa. He enjoys giving talks to oppositional and underserved audiences including such diverse groups as conservative fire departments, Houston oil industry executives, and maximum security inmates. He is the founder of Climate Actors and serves on the leadership council of Riverkeeper, the board of the Ashokan Center (New York’s oldest center for environmental education), and the board of Green Product Placement. He is the official Climate Change liaison for the town of Marbletown with the Climate Mayors, and is the co-chair (with the fabulous Alice Quinn) of the Climate Reality Project Hudson Valley/Catskills, New York Chapter. As an actor he has appeared in over 200 movies and episodes of television.
