HOUGHTON -- The Green Film Series continues on Thursday, April 19, with Carbon Nation, a documentary about climate-change solutions. The film portrays how tackling climate change can boost the economy; increase national and energy security; and promote a healthy, clean environment.

The session, which will begin at 7 p.m., will be in the Atrium and G002 of Hesterberg Hall in the Forestry building.

The Green Film Series is sponsored by the Lake Superior Stewardship Initiative, Keweenaw Land Trust, Michigan Tech's Center for Water and Society and the Keweenaw Unitarian Universalist Fellowship.
