Screening of Carbon Nation & Mini Energy Fair

Dear press contacts, speakers, vendors, fellow Transitioners and friends,

Please find attached a flyer and a press release for the screening of the movie carbon nation on the Green in Southern Village on Friday, Oct 14.  Please help advertise the event and distribute flyers and information to reach as many people as possible.  The movie is very inspiring and hopeful.  I believe it will inspire people who see it to take small measures themselves, like participating in Phase 2 of the Town of Chapel Hill WISE program.  We will screen the film carbon nation on the Southern Village Green on Friday, October 14 at around 7pm. (Rain date: Oct. 15.).

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.  We already have the technology to combat most of the worst-case scenarios of climate change, and it is very good business as well. See a trailer and learn more about the film at  Come see how people across the country are cutting their carbon emissions and their energy costs. The screening will be introduced by speakers

Leif Forer – co-founder of Piedmont Biofuels
Dennis Markatos-Soriano, Executive Director East Coast Greenway Alliance
Jane Norton, Chief Visionary OfficerReSourcing Natural Solutions & Eartheal

and will be accompanied by a mini-energy efficiency fair featuring the Town of Chapel Hill WISE program and these local providers of energy services and local food:

Town of Chapel Hill WISE program
Strata Solar
Green Horizon
Transition Carrboro-Chapel Hill
BIG Bundts (local food)
Parlez Vous Crepe (local food)
Bikescream (local bike powered Ice Cream)

Viewers inspired by the movie can take immediate action by consulting energy experts, getting information and contacts, or even scheduling energy assessments for their homes right there and then.  Come join the fun!
