Carbon Nation

Q: What’s the movie about?

A: It bills itself as a movie that bypasses the politics of global warming to focus on the solutions. Only problem with that is it doesn’t address all those people who—politically-- believe that global warming doesn’t exist.

Q: Who’s in the movie?

A: A bunch of entrepreneurs and engineers who have realized that being on the cutting edge of going green is a great way to get some green. And in their defense, they’re also creating a lot of jobs for other people with the money they’re making.

Q: Is this movie worth the price of admission?

A: PhotobucketProceed with Caution. The solutions to getting us off our oil addiction are inspiring, the presentation of them is dull, dull, dull.

Q: Will this movie make me laugh?

A: It wants to be witty, but they needed better writers to hit the levels they seem to be aiming at. They probably hired someone who was willing to work for free.

Q: Will this movie make me cry?

A: No, we’re finally getting some answers to the problems. It’ll make you jump for joy!

Q: Will this movie be up for any awards?

A: Many of the people featured in this will win Science and Peace Awards (if they haven’t already). They are innovating, and using their noggins to save the Earth, prevent wars, create jobs, and get rich doing it.

Q: How is the Acting?

A: Let’s just say it like it is: smart people are boring.

Q: How is the Directing?

A: There are some cute animations, and while they’ll help your understanding of what the movie is talking about, they won’t necessarily entertain you…

Q: How is the story/script?

A: …And you still won’t even understand most of it. But I'm consoling myself with the fact that they know what they're talking about, because it's always good when somebody does.

Q: Is there anything else worth mentioning about the movie?

A: Since most of you will never see this, and I still want you to know the solutions, I made a partial list of the options (from memory, so I'm probably missing some), in case you want to make lots of money getting in on the ground floor with any of them:
Wind farms, solar paneling, insulation, recycling your old non-energy-saver fridge, inventing a super powerful battery so that electricity can replace oil, using hot springs to create energy (don’t ask me how), organic farming of meat and land—you see organically farmed soil sucks the excess CO2 back into the earth and out of the atmosphere with the byproduct of creating better soil for healthier foods, take one day off eating meat per week, AND stop burning down the forests.

Q: Where can I see the trailer?

A: Carbon Nation Trailer

I really don't like the new layout. But you are still very funny and entertaining.
So let's not talk about the outside, it's about the inside...

Thanks for the feedback! I felt the old layout was too conservative for the tone of the blog, and not as user friendly. With this one, I'm trying to show a look that matches the fun and irreverent tone of the writing a little bit more. I'm sorry you're not into it. Content remains the same though! Thanks for reading!
