Carbon Nation

Directed by: Peter Byck


Special Guest: Forrest Jehlik, Engineer for the Center for Transportation Research at Argonne National Laboratories

“Although it contains its moments of doom and gloom about the potential effects of climate change, the excellent documentary Carbon Nation is an inspiring look at the many recent advances in clean energy and green technologies. Director Peter Byck covers an impressively wide range of ground as he introduces us to a stirring cross-section of pioneers, researchers and innovators committed to helping the world reduce its carbon footprint. Byck hopscotches across America and beyond interviewing such notables as Richard Branson, former CIA Director R. James Woolsey, Earth Day founder Denis Hayes and charismatic environmental advocate Van Jones, among many others, who weigh in on the issues, problems and solutions surrounding the climate change phenomenon.” – Gary Goldstein, Los Angeles Times (2010, 82 min.)
