Carbon Nation is a feature length documentary 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 a compelling and relevant film that illustrates how SOLUTIONS to climate change also address other social, economic and national security issues. 'Carbon Nation' is an optimistic discovery of what people are already doing, what we as a nation could be doing and what the world needs to do to prevent (or slow down) the impending climate crisis.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"What we get is the filmic equivalent of a smiley face. But enthusiasm and sincerity don't make the hard questions go away."
‑ Walter V. Addiego, San Francisco Chronicle
"This film seems blissfully unaware that political obstructionists are paralyzing the legislative process; that deep-pocketed influence peddlers have a vested interest in maintaining the fossil fuel culture; that, in general, people resist change."
‑ Neil Genzlinger, New York Times
"Thought-provoking on a macro level in some of its interviews, but its sloppy construction, poor focus and rah-rah boosterism make for a sludgy viewing experience."
‑ Brent Simon, Shared Darkness
"A sobering documentary which makes a convincing case that climate change is a national security issue."
‑ Kam Williams,
"To a point, it is refreshing to listen to positive talking heads in fields and factories. But there are so many faces that one cannot keep track of who's who and what's what."
‑ Donald J. Levit, ReelTalk Movie Reviews
""Carbon Nation" is an inspiring look at the many recent advances in clean energy and green technologies."
‑ Gary Goldstein, Los Angeles Times
"Alternative energy sources-algae, wind, and geothermal-are showcased, but Carbon Nation is most persuasive when it focuses on the individuals utilizing those supplies in their communities."
‑ Michelle Orange, Village Voice
"The film's hectic pace and flow has more in common with design of a kids' educational TV show, and although the information seems sometimes chaotic. it is always lively, thought-provoking, and inspirational."
‑ Marjorie Baumgarten, Austin Chronicle
"Mildly captivating albeit one-sided and over-simplified. It merely presents a reader's digest overview of climate change solutions [that's] more overwhelming than inspirational."
‑ Avi Offer, NYC Movie Guru
"Will the grandchildren of our grandchildren cherish our memory because we rose as one and did the right thing?"
‑ Rob Humanick, Projection Booth
"Interviewees who issue hysterical statements like "the sea ice cap is almost gone" go uncontradicted."
‑ Kyle Smith, New York Post
"Well intended but inert."
‑ John Anderson, Variety
"Afraid of the dullness of its subject matter, and of being lost in the swarm of patronizing eco-documentaries, Carbon Nation tries really hard to speak to the language of "young people these days.""
‑ Diego Costa, Slant Magazine
"A documentary with a varied group of Americans talking about solutions to the very-real crisis of climate change."
‑ Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat, Spirituality and Practice
"Highly informative, relatively upbeat take on global warming."
‑ Eric Monder, Film Journal International
