GREG SHAPIRO SAVES THE CLIMATE: 60 Minutes of Climate Good News

In the Netherlands alone, there are solar-powered cars, wind-powered trains, garbage-powered trucks – and homes heated by cow poop (warning: contents are not vegan). Comedian Greg Shapiro shares an hour of uplifting environmental game-changers and asks “Why aren’t we ALL doing this?”

Maybe it’s because the Netherlands is addicted to modesty. The Netherlands doesn’t get nearly enough credit for their innovations – because that’s exactly how they like it. The entire country is allergic to anything resembling bragging. Scheppen, goed. Opscheppen, niet goed.

Netherlands, you need a sidekick. You need a wing man. You need a cheerleader! Enter The American Netherlander: Greg is Dutch enough to be proud of the Netherlands; but American enough to be way too loud about it.

“Yes 90% of climate news is bad. But if you ignore the 10% that’s good, you’ll go 100% crazy.”
– Greg Shapiro
