The David Suzuki Foundation has launched a new campaign, Play It Cool, with well-known winter sports athletes who are concerned about global warming. These athletes are committed to making changes in their personal lives to reduce their climate impact, and to inspiring others to do the same. The campaign was kicked off in Calgary by Canadian alpine skiing star, Thomas Grandi, and his wife, Olympic silver medalist Sara Renner, along with Dr. David Suzuki.
“I worry because winter sports might be the first to go,” says Olympic cross-country medal-winner Renner. “Winter sports are a big part of our country and our culture. Together with the David Suzuki Foundation we are challenging other winter athletes and all Canadians to take responsibility for their climate impact by going carbon neutral.”
