Climate Listening Project

About the film:

Dayna Reggero and the Climate Listening Project traveled across America to listen to women confronting fossil fuel industries, climate change impacts, and a culture of extraction by inspiring people to share their stories and take action. We visited North Carolina to hear from women who are living with the realities of the coal industry. Tracey and Caroline worked together and inspired their community to call on Duke Energy to clean up the pollution in Walnut Cove, while fracking and climate change threatened to bring new concerns to their communities. And after years of fighting – they won! Duke Energy is cleaning up the coal ash in North Carolina.
