Tim Guinee is a leader with former Vice President Al Gore's Climate Reality Project. He is also an actor, bee-keeper, firefighter and wire-walker.
Guinee first learned about the climate crisis in 1976 in a letter from Jaques Cousteau. The letter described what scientists at the time were predicting: the melting of the polar ice caps, the dissolution of glaciers worldwide and more. During his lifetime, Guinee has seen many of these changes come to pass.
Guinee is the founder of the Climate Actors, an organization that empower actors by providing them with facts and tools to speak with authority on the climate crisis, amplifying the unique skills actors possess to advance solutions.
