It's really rather simple – human-powered outdoor pursuits need a healthy climate. If the climate is out of balance, then our favorite ways to enjoy the outdoors can go from being degraded to actually disappearing. We put together a short little film that bottom lines how the human-powered outdoor community intersects with this humongous issue and hopefully energizes the community to flex some political muscle and help get the climate back on track.

Check out the film in HD http://www.vimeo.com/6853058, or for the YouTube set, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jTxtKqf7lLc

The film also ends with an invitation to take some action at

Background

Founded in 2006, Outdoor Alliance is a coalition of six member-based national outdoor advocacy groups including the Access Fund, American Canoe Association, American Hiking Society, American Whitewater, International Mountain Bicycling Association and the Winter Wildlands Alliance, whose mission is to ensure the conservation and stewardship of our nation's land and waters through the promotion of sustainable, human-powered recreation.

Outdoor Alliance serves as the human-powered outdoor community's voice on “big picture” public lands and waters issues in Washington, D.C. OA's members, friends and staff testify before Congress, pen editorials and produce films to help the human-powered outdoor community channel its vision of conservation and stewardship directly to national policy makers. Today Outdoor Alliance continues its adventure with a new film designed to educate, inspire and move viewers to action as we all strive to protect our changing climate.
