Dawn Countryman, a friend and colleague of mine in the biology department, viewed a screening of Carbon Nation this summer at Millenium Park in Chicago. She said it is an excellent film about climate change and is different in that it focuses on the positive solutions rather than the gloom and doom. Columbia College is having a screening of the film on Friday, October 15th at 7:00pm and tickets are only $5 at the door. Columbia College is located at 1104 South Wabash, Chicago, IL 60605. The film will be screened on the 8th floor at the Film Row Cinema.
Here is a little blurb about the film: “Carbon Nation is a documentary film about climate change solutions. Even if you doubt the severity of the impact of climate change or just don’t buy it at all, this is still a compelling and relevant film that illustrates how solutions to climate change also address other social, economic and national security issues. We meet a host of entertaining and endearing characters along the way.”
