Off the shores of New England, in a region steeped in old maritime tradition, comes a modern wave of big ships, energy industries, and a changing climate, now testing the limits of an already crowded sea. But in a pioneering trial of far-sighted planning—pushed by blueprints for offshore wind energy—old residents and new are coming together to keep their ocean and livelihoods alive.
After nearly a year of work—filming, editing, talking with people and taking a critical look at ocean planning in New England—Green Fire is excited to be in the final editing stages of our new film, Ocean Frontiers II: A New England Story for Sustaining the Sea. Check out the trailer above or at http://ocean-frontiers.org/trailer/
New England’s experiences serve as an important milestone for all of us who care about the ocean.
