In his State of the Union address last week, President Obama announced some bold plans for clean energy development in America. Despite this promising news, Obama was criticized by some for neglecting to mention one of the primary reasons this action is needed: climate change.
Still, at a time when fewer Americans believe in climate change than ever before, others argue that by focusing on solutions with clear benefits for everyone, we can advance critical actions more quickly. In that vein comes the new documentary “Carbon Nation,” which dubs itself as “a climate change solutions movie (that doesn’t even care if you believe in climate change).” The nonpartisan film argues that whether or not people believe in climate science doesn’t change their need for clean air, clean water and cheaper energy.
Carbon Nation will open in the following cities:
2/11/11 – New York, NY– Cinema Village
2/18/11 – Los Angeles, CA – Laemmle Sunset 5 Theatre
