Mr. Jones goes to Washington

Jeremy Jones ... pro snowboarder and climate change activist ... will give an "exclusive screening" of the new TGR short film "Generations" at the U.S. Capitol this week. There'll be a Q&A, there'll be congressmen, and there is likely to be a sighting of Jeremy and the TGR crew wearing suits and ties. Seriously.

The word on the street (or in the bar) is that Jeremy and the crew were invited by a US Senator (not sure which one) to give the presentation, as the Senator was inspired by the film and saw it as an ideal way to raise awareness for the immediate effects of climate change.

If you or anybody else is in DC, here's the beta:

  1. Man - can't imagine a world without skiing. Seeing those closed down ski operations definitely makes you think about what's going on.
