Recently I viewed the film "Carbon Nation" and had lunch with the director/producer, Peter Byck. With all due respect to "An Inconvenient Truth," I found Carbon Nation to be the best film on climate change that I've seen. I definitely think it should be in the running for the Academy Award for documentary.
Not only is it simply and incredibly well-made film, its focus on solutions is quite empowering. But it's the stories of Red State folks creating the clean energy revolution that steal the show. Entertaining, informative, empowering -- quite a combination. We will definitely be using it in our educational outreach.
I strongly encourage everyone to check it out and use it to help educate others -- especially those who are still unsure about climate change.
