What do an entrepreneur in Alaska, a cotton farmer in Texas, a civil rights activist in California, and the CEOs of Stonyfield Farms and Duke Energy have in common? They are saving energy, creating jobs, and boosting the economy - all the while turning a profit in the process. You can see the stories behind these people in Peter Byck's latest film Carbon Nation.

Come see how climate change solutions can address other social, economic and national issues. Get a glimpse of some of the industries that can aid economic recovery, the power of entrepreneurship around the country, and the feisty, inspiring nature of the challenge of climate action today.
