“Paris to Pittsburgh” brings to life the impassioned efforts of individuals who are battling the most severe threats of climate change in their own backyards. Set against the national debate over the United States’ energy future – and the Trump administration’s explosive decision to exit the Paris Climate Agreement – the film captures what’s at stake for communities around the country and the inspiring ways Americans are responding.

The title of the documentary refers to the phrase used by President Trump on June 1, 2017, in his speech delivered in the White House Rose Garden in which he announced that he was pulling the U.S. out of the Paris Agreement. Trump said, “I was elected to represent the citizens of Pittsburgh, not Paris.” In response, Bill Peduto, Mayor of Pittsburgh, wrote: “As the Mayor of Pittsburgh, I can assure you that we will follow the guidelines of the Paris Agreement for our people, our economy and future.”
