Turned off by Al Gore’s An Inconvenient Truth?  You’re not alone.

Don’t believe in climate change? Believe some points but doubt its severity? Bullshit science? Elitist garbage? Al Gore turns you off?

All of the above? This one’s for you—don’t miss it.

Carbon Nation Logocarbon nation is a timely, compelling, and relevant film that explores how solutions and initiatives initially aimed to address climate change transcend that goal. It shows relevant examples that will resonate positively with the most stubborn of climate change skeptics—true believers will enjoy it too.

The film illustrates how these initiatives also address other social, economic, and national security issues. That’s the stuff that’s important for everyone.

Here’s the film in a nutshell: 

  • carbon nation is an optimistic, solutions-based, non-preachy, non-partisan, big tent film that shows tackling climate change boosts the economy, increases national & energy security, and promotes a healthy clean environment. Wow, that’s refreshing—some convenient truth.
  • carbon nation offers an entertaining, informed and pragmatic primer about why it’s incredibly smart to be a part of the new, low-carbon economy: it’s good business—and more.
  • carbon nation is a film that celebrates solutions, inspiration and action. Other films have been about problems, blame, and guilt. 
  • carbon nation’s optimism and pragmatism are appealing across the political spectrum. Should be required viewing for everyone in Congress. It’s points enlighten and could help with energy policy progress.

Enjoy the trailer here but don’t pass the opportunity to see the entire film. You’ll meet a host of entertaining and endearing characters along the way. And, you’ll be repeating some of their quotes—real gems.

Arnold Schwarzenegger wrote recently"For too long we have been fighting about greenhouse gases and global warming, about whether the oceans are rising and whether the science can be trusted. All that’s gotten us is stuck and polarized. Let’s face it, if we haven’t convinced the skeptics by now, we aren’t going to." Agreed, Governor—but this film might sway some skeptics too. Not its goal but not a bad thing either. It succeeds at changing the way we talk about and frame some of the issues.

We’d be in better shape if carbon nation was released in May 2006.

Stay tuned. We’ll be blogging more soon about the polarizing consequences of the albeit well-intentioned climate change zealots and their methods. They have likely unintentionally negatively impacted progress in good energy policy.
