Once in a while someone comes along that totally wows you; this is the story of Tim DeChristopher. In 2008, University of Utah economics student Tim DeChristopher committed an act which would redefine patriotism, igniting a spirit of civil disobedience in the name of climate justice. As bidder #70, he bid and saved 22,000 acres of pristine wilderness. No property was destroyed, no one was hurt, and valid concerns were raised over the entire oil and gas leasing process. Bidder 70 centers on an extraordinary, ingenious and effective act of civil disobedience, demanding government and industry accountability. Tim’s commitment to future generations, his evolution as a leader and his willingness to courageously accept the consequences of his action make his a story one that will inspire and motivate a new generation of activists.
