Steve Goodall
A native Californian from Lake Tahoe. “We knew our lifestyle was going to cause climate change as far back as the 1970’s. Unfortunately, very few took any personal responsibility or action until it was to late. Myself included”. Steve lived in Alaska from 1976-1982 where he worked on the construction of the trans-alaska pipeline. Steve then helped build and later operated Nevada’s first commercial renewable energy power plant 1982-1998.

In 1998 he organized a group of Lake Tahoe locals and took action to protect Tahoe’s clarity by exposing and banning two-stroke engines. Steve built alternative powered boats to demonstrate feasibility, practicality and simplicity of their use.

He has been a still photographer since, and made his first 16mm movie in, 1974 with a group of friends. Steve left America when Bush was re-elected in 2004 on a sailboat named “Manta” equipped with four solar panels and a wind generator. “When I met the people of these Islands and had to tell them that their Islands were going to disappear, I felt a sudden and overwhelming responsibility. I personally believe that my lifestyle has helped cause this (climate change) and, on some level, this film is an acknowledgment and an apology”
