He talks while washing windows. He calls what he does “industrial alpinism,” likening the urban skyline and its buildings to a mountain range with peaks and valleys. He likens the efforts to save the environment to World War III and talks about environmental issues, saying, “I think that we are the last generation that can really save the planet.” Includes shots of the Denver skyline.
