Author Porter Fox Talks Climate Change
Porter Fox, features editor for Powder magazine and author of the book “DEEP: The Story of Skiing and the Future of Snow,” spoke to Gould Academy students today about the impacts of climate change as it relates to snow and skiing. The presentation was part of Gould’s annual Earth Day celebration.
“It’s definitely not too late,” Fox said of climate change to a group of approximately 300 guests, most of whom consider themselves winter enthusiasts. “It’s definitely going to take a lot of work.”
Fox, who started skiing at the age of two right here in Maine, admits that he’s optimistic. “My secret hope is that we come out of this not only saving our planet, but also finding a much better, more efficient and equitable way to live on the planet.”
