Do The Math
A new 42-minute film about the rising movement in the United States to change the terrifying maths of the climate crisis and challenge the fossil fuel industry. While it is set in the United States, the maths the film outlines apply globally -- making it important for all of us to watch.

In the Sourlands of New Jersey, a rampaging deer herd, invasive plants, and wholesale habitat destruction threaten the local ecosystem. Farmers in the surrounding valley battle against high land prices, high property taxes, and increasingly erratic weather patterns. A group of local engineers searches for new ways to save energy and stop global warming. Pay close attention, and the challenges facing this community look a lot like the challenges facing
ecosystems, farmers, and energy visionaries everywhere.
The message of cautious hope presented in the film is just as universal: To start solving complicated environmental problems, we need to forgo quick fixes and start restoring the natural world — and people's connection to it -- from the forest floor up.
Communities around the world have begun to rethink the paradigms they rely on for food, energy, and the preservation of a healthy place to live. The same is true of the people of the Sourlands. Directly between New York and Philly — and all those people — there is a forest that has survived the bulldozers of development. The locals call this place the Sourland Mountain, or sometimes simply “the Sourlands.” The film tells the story of this green oasis from the perspective of its remarkable citizens. By the director of The Farmer and the Horse.
