EARTH FOCUS: The New West and the Politics of the Environment Iconic Nevada Senator Harry Reid set the foundations for a green new deal in the state using power in new ways to settle water wars with respect for Native Americans, protect endangered species and usher in a just transition to renewable energy. Reid forged allegiances between unlikely allies and crafted policy to grow the economy of his home state while protecting its wilderness and in the process, redefined the future

of the West.

A conversation immediately following the screening, courtesy of the Environmental Film Festival in the Nation’s Capital (DCEFF), features Senator Harry Reid, Adam Jentleson (Author, Kill Switch: The Rise of the Modern Senate and the Crippling of American Democracy), Jocelyn Torres (Senior Field Director, Conservation Lands Foundation), and is moderated by Jon Christensen (Executive Producer).
