Carbon Nation kicks off enviro-film fest Jan. 18

ERIN - Not sure what to believe about climate change?

Even though the science is increasingly clear that humans are heating the planet, the U.S. filmmakers who created the movie Carbon Nation just don’t care what people believe.

Instead, they make a case for getting off fossil fuels for all sorts of other good reasons – for saving tons of energy dollars, creating an abundance of green jobs, boosting the economy and – not least – for making the world a healthier place.

On Jan. 18, Carbon Nation launches Erin’s 2012 Fast Forward Environmental Film Festival, the third annual series presented by the Climate Change Action Group of Erin, and made possible by the support of local sponsors.

The doors open at 6:30pm at the Erin Legion, and the film starts at 7pm.

Carbon Nation, sponsored by Rob’s Automotive Service in Erin, is a departure from most eco-films: it is an optimistic, solutions-based, non-preachy, non-partisan film, and it will probably leave viewers hollering for action on many green energy fronts. 

All Fast Forward films are scheduled for the third Wednesday of each month, from January through May at the Erin Legion, 12 Dundas Street East.

Admission to the event is free, though donations are appreciated.

Special thanks to Jay Mowat (Swift Creek Oil Corporation) for his general sponsorship of the 2012 series.

In addition to Carbon Nation, the 2012 film fest will feature:

- Water On The Table, Feb. 15, sponsored by Credit Valley Conservation;

- The Last Mountain, March 21, sponsored by Uphill Farm Organics and Hodgson Law; 

- White Water, Black Gold, April 18, sponsored by Everpure Biodiesel Co-op; and

- Queen of the Sun, May 16, sponsored by Treehaven Natural Foods.

For more information about the series contact Liz Armstrong, Climate Change Action Group Erin at 519-833-4676.
