Carbon Nation (2010)

Carbon Nation is an optimistic, solutions-based, non-partisan 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.
