The new documentary Happening: A Clean Energy Revolution, brings good news for anyone who's been crushed by the recent stream of headlines on climate change. Director Jamie Redford takes us on a journey to discover the green energy revolution that's taking place in towns, cities and states across the country while underscoring issues of human resilience and social justice.

GOP Tax Plan Pulls the Plug on Renewable Energy 1.12.2017 American Prospect
