          CARBON NATION is a feature length documentary 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 a compelling and relevant film that illustrates how solutions to climate change also address other social, economic, and national security issues. CARBON NATION is an optimistic discovery of what people are already doing, what we as a nation could be doing and what the world needs to do to prevent (or slow down) the impending climate crisis. We already have the technology to combat most of the worst-case scenarios of climate change, and it is very good business as well. In CARBON NATION, we meet a host of entertaining and endearing characters, including entrepreneurs, visionaries, scientists, businessmen, and the everyday man, all making a difference and working towards solving climate change.
