Ezra Miller Introduces Chief Dana Tizya-Tramm

Solar works in the Arctic - so what excuse do city folks have?  That’s the question posed by Old Crow, Yukon’s new solar installation project, which, when complete, will allow the community to stop burning nearly 200,000 litres of diesel fuel annually. The initiative is being shepherded by Chief Dana Tizya-Tramm, the elected chief of Vuntut Gwitchin First Nation, based in Old Crow, a fly-in community of around 300 in Canada.  We talked to Chief Tizya-Tramm about making climate decisions that honor generations past, present, and future; and the solutions that our nations have access to right now ... if we’re only courageous enough to choose them.
