Some of these battles included the halting of dams in the Grand Canyon, battling 20,000 tons of toxic waste at Love Canal, Greenpeace saving the whales, and Chico Mendes and the rubbertappers saving the Amazon. A Fierce Green Fire explores the dire consequences of climate change, yet also speaks of transforming our civilization through environmental action. Narrated by Robert Redford, Meryl Streep, Ashley Judd, Van Jones and Isabel Allende, the film premiered at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival and has won worldwide acclaim.
