"Stunningly refreshing, unaffected and informed… If you had to select one film to show your climate change-denying brother-in-law or equivocating religious or community group or indifferent college student or distracted kid, YERT should go to the head of your queue." -Huffington Post
"Here's a trip you'll wish you'd taken, and you'll be glad you get to watch!"
"Light-hearted but serious-minded." -Pittsburgh City Paper
"YERT has taken its adventure and turned it into a feature film celebrating the American spirit in the face of adversity." -The Rider News
"A big ‘YES!’ to Mark, Ben, and Julie, who have given us the road trip for our century — a roaring tour of some of the best solutions for a warming planet, spiked with funky humor and charming humility." -YES! Magazine
"An outstanding piece of environmental filmmaking. YERT serves up a banquet of comedy, education, and inspiration as they travel to all 50 states under self-imposed 'rules' that crank up the entertainment factor. Along the way they meet with environmental shakers and movers like Bill MCKibben, and other lesser known but equally inspiring folks, with a few sprinkles of the outrageous and quirky to add spice to the mix. Highly recommended!"
