Free “Carbon Nation” documentary screening

Tuesday, June 22, 2010
7:30pm – 9:30pm
Gateway Film Center
1550 North High Street
Columbus, OH

Carbon Nation is a documentary film about climate change SOLUTIONS. Even if you doubt the severity of the impact of climate change or just don’t buy it at all, this is still a compelling and relevant film that illustrates how SOLUTIONS to climate change also address other social, economic and national security issues. We meet a host of entertaining and endearing characters along the way.

• Carbon Nation is an optimistic (and witty) discovery of what people are already doing, what we as a nation could be doing and what the world needs to do to stave off climate change by moving to a low carbon economy.

• Public opinion is sliding the wrong way – far fewer people are concerned about climate change than even a year ago. We’ve made Carbon Nation to give a majority of people an entertaining, informed and pragmatic primer about why it’s incredibly smart to be a part of the new, low-carbon economy: it’s good business, it emboldens national & energy security and it improves health & the environment.

• Carbon Nation’s optimism and pragmatism is appealing across the political spectrum. While other good films have been about problems, blame and guilt, Carbon Nation is a film that celebrates solutions, inspiration and action.

Both the film’s director, Peter Byck and producer, Craig Sieben, will be at the screening and will do q+a after the film.

This screening is free, donations encouraged.
You will need to pick up free tickets at the box office right before the screening (so we can accurately count attendance). If you have parked in the garage you should buy a $1 parking pass at the box office.
