Tired of doom-and-gloom news about climate change? "Carbon Nation" is an inspirational, optimistic, solutions-based, non-partisan documentary that illustrates why it’s incredibly smart to be a part of the new, low-carbon economy: it’s good business, it emboldens national and energy security, and it improves health and the environment.
The film features a cast of engaging and endearing characters from across the country, in towns big and small, and introduces us to the new wave of American ingenuity. One-armed Texas cotton farmer Cliff Etheridge is banding together the land of small farmers to create one enormous wind farm. Meanwhile, green jobs innovator Van Jones, is bringing clean technology and jobs to inner cities. Carbon Nation makes it clear that entrepreneurs, visionaries, scientists, and the everyday man are already creating the inventive ideas needed to combat climate change.
The cast includes: Richard Branson (CEO, Virgin Group), Thomas L. Friedman (The New York Times), Former CIA Director James Woolsey, Van Jones (Founder, Green For All), Col. Dan Nolan, U.S. Army (Ret), Bernie Karl (Geothermal pioneer from Alaska), Denis Hayes (Founder of Earth Day), Cliff Etheredge (West Texas wind pioneer), and more climate change pioneers.
