* I won't be able to make this, but for those interested:
Carbon Nation is a 2010 documentary film by Peter Byck about technological- and community-based energy solutions to the growing worldwide carbon footprint. The film is narrated by Bill Kurtis.
Rather than highlighting the problems with use of fossil fuels, Carbon Nation presents a series of ways in which the 16 terawatts of energy the world consumes can be met while reducing or eliminating carbon-based sources. It contains optimistic interviews with experts in various fields, business CEOs, and sustainable energy supporters to present a compelling case for change while having a neutral, matter-of-fact explanation.
Among those interviewed are Richard Branson, former CIA Director R. James Woolsey, Earth Day founder Denis Hayes and environmental advocate Van Jones.
Enjoy a free screening of the critically acclaimed documentary Carbon Nation, followed by a conversation with Director/Producer Peter Byck, a new Professor of Practice in the School of Sustainability and Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication.
Carbon Nation is an inspirational, optimistic, non-partisan film that celebrates sustainable solutions and inspires action.
Doors open at 6:30pm; film begins at 7pm sharp.
