Weekly Freebie: Carbon Nation Screening

Whether you think going green is the way of the future or the way of the left-wing tree hugger, Professor Peter Byck of ASU's School of Sustainability and Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication invites you watch a free screening of a documentary that addresses where your carbon footprint lies (and if you believe you even have one).

Directed and produced in part by Byck himself, Carbon Nation is a film that forgoes playing the blame game by instead playing the numbers game. Featuring such key voices in the climate change movement including Virgin Group CEO Richard Branson, Former CIA Director James Woolsey, Green For All founder Van Jones, Exelon CEO John Rowe, Duke Energy CEO Jim Rogers, Earth Day Founder Denis Hayes, and more, Carbon Nation looks at the connection between solutions in climate change and solutions in socioeconomic and national security issues.

Put down your wallet and put aside your assumptions on climate change, because this special screening about the costs of a high-carbon economy is being offered at absolutely no cost to you. Carbon Nation screens Wednesday, September 11, at the Walter Cronkite School and Thursday, September 12, at Harkins Valley Art Theater. Both screenings start at 7 p.m. and are followed by a discussion with Byck. For more information visit ASU online.
