Carbon Nation is now available on DVD and on most download and On Demand sites. This important, entertaining and hopeful documentary, produced by Peter Byck, is highly recommended by us here at Read the press release here. Learn how to order the film here.

I saw Carbon Nation this spring when Boeing sponsored a premier here in Seattle, and we blogged at that time that it would be come the “new must see film on our common future.” In the movie Peter travels throughout the country documenting amazing stories of individuals and companies who are creating the next clean and low-carbon energy future. If you see climate change as a problem, or if you don’t but would like cleaner and cheaper energy anyway, this film tells you how it can be done, and is already being done.

We encourage you to buy the DVD, and what we are really recommending is that companies, educational institutions, and conference events consider a bulk purchase of DVD’s for use as a premium, an educational asset, or strategic planning tool. Carbon Nation would be terrific for any of those uses, and I have already begun talking with one speaking event I am doing about the possibility of a purchase and give-away of the DVD to those in attendance.

By the way, our new Office Manager, Mallory Smith, university graduate this year, just watched the DVD and loved it. If you have a message that speaks to both the sustainability and next jet fuel managers at Boeing, as well as the most recent college grads, chances are you have message that is worth watching.

To order the DVD or to inquire about a bulk purchase we suggest you contact Carbon Nation directly at You can always contact us at [email protected] for information.

One more important announcement: We are pleased to announce that Peter will become a featured associate at, and is available for public speaking events where he can show the film and talk about it, or in a shorter format provide a presentation sprinkled with excerpts from the movie. Peter has over 20 years experience as a director and editor. His first documentary “Garbage” won the South by Southwest Film Festival, screened in scores of festivals and played at the Museum of Modern Art and Lincoln Center. In addition, he has edited documentaries for Peter Jackson’s “Lord of the Rings” and “King Kong.” As an associate, he will be available for speaking engagements and we will also be looking for ways to develop collaborative projects. There will be more news to come on that in our next newsletter. Contact us at [email protected] about arranging a speech by Peter.
