In light of the recent weather patterns and extreme storms which have brought an even greater focus to climate change, Urban Green Council's Emerging Professionals are screening the documentary Carbon Nation.
The film focuses on solutions for climate change and carbon reductions in ways that promote clean water and air. Interviews with a diverse group of individuals including architects, economists, utility CEOs, airline executives, farmers, and grassroots activists address topics dealing with alternative energy, sustainable construction, land use, and green businesses.
"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."
