The MNYCEM has been invited to a free preview screening of the new movie Carbon Nation
. Attendees must be willing to share their reaction after viewing the film via an email survey/follow-up. Please arrive no later then 7:45pm.
I will be unable to attend the screening due to a prior engagement, so I'm looking for a volunteer event host for this event. The event host is just the person that others look for when they arrive so that the group can meetup and sit together. Please indicate in your RSVP or email if you're interested in serving as the Event host.
About Carbon Nation:
Carbon Nation is an optimistic, solutions-based, non-partisan
feature length documentary that illustrates why it?s incredibly
smart to be a part of the new, low-carbon economy: it?s good
business, it emboldens national and energy security, and it
improves health and the environment.
Through a cast of engaging and endearing characters from across
the country, in towns big and small, Carbon Nation introduces
us to the new wave of American ingenuity. From one-armed Texas
cotton farmer Cliff Etheridge, who is banding together small
farmers? land to create one enormous wind farm, to green jobs
innovator Van Jones, who is bringing clean technology and jobs
to inner cities, it?s clear that the creative solutions needed
to combat climate change are already being created by
entrepreneurs, visionaries, scientists, and the everyday man.
By bringing their innovations to light, Carbon Nation is a film
that celebrates solutions and inspires action.
Narrated by Bill Kurtis, the cast includes: Richard Branson
(CEO, Virgin Group), Thomas L. Friedman (The New York Times),
Former CIA Director James Woolsey, Van Jones (Founder, Green
For All), Col. Dan Nolan, U.S. Army (Ret), Bernie Karl
(Geothermal pioneer from Alaska), Denis Hayes (Founder of Earth
Day), Cliff Etheredge (West Texas wind pioneer), and more
climate change pioneers.
CARBON NATION is directed by Peter Byck and written by Byck,
Eric Driscoll, Matt Weinhold, and Karen Weigert. Producers are
Peter Byck, Craig Sieben, Karen Weigert, Artemis Joukowsky, and
Chrisna van Zyl. Executive Producers are Paula Crown, Gigi
