The Carbon Coast is a story about rejecting broken systems to save planet Earth; about new life outgrowing old decay. After centuries of peace, war lurches from its grave while a race for global change sprints for an invisible finish line. Sustainability was long ago established and life is beautiful—yet the cost remains hidden to the majority reaping the benefits. The stitches of a wounded climate are popping, and Kota is discovering there was and still can be a way to make the world go around.

Presented in fantastic environmental optimism spiced with betrayal and war-torn adventure, The Carbon Coast explores what it means to be a person among humans fighting for an Earth among planets.

Don't just read the story, be within it with <pwa>Scenescapes</pwa>! We're making animated YouTube videos with the vibe of each location from The Carbon Coast story, hosted on the ASMR Weekly Channel after Patrons see them first.
Which Tier will you choose? The magic-heavy, mysterious <pwa>lunarpu</pwa><pwa>nk</pwa> content in the Forbidden Tier? The oceanic, far-reaching depths of the story world in the <pwa>tidalpunk</pwa> Tier? Read about each Tier and pledge to the one that fits your style!

We're bringing an eco-friendly world to life with animated videos, vivid art & illustrations, immersive sounds and music, provocative eco-podcasts & more! Our team is leading the way on imagining a better future of planet Earth and its climate. Our Patrons help us sustain the costs of making all this, and our vivid environmental future is coming to life with passion & emotion you'll feel in your gut—soon!

$1 USD of every patron's pledge <pwa>is donated</pwa> to GRID Alternatives—a solar energy nonprofit working to install solar panels in low-income places in the US & globally.

"The Carbon Coast" refers to all things related to Connor Carbon's <pwa>solarpunk</pwa> story world—like how we say "Harry Potter" to refer to almost everything in JK Rowling's story world! In our story, The Carbon Coast is a rumored place of ash and smoke, hidden beyond the solar walls of Seraph City. Discover the truth of these claims in higher Tiers or the Patreon, or support at lower tiers to <pwa>be surprised</pwa> when Carbon Coast videos, stories and more <pwa>are released</pwa> over time!

The term <pwa>Solarpunk</pwa> means "environmental uprising," but the movement is about so much more. <pwa>Solarpunk</pwa> imagines an eco-friendly future of planet Earth. People in a <pwa>solarpunk</pwa> future disregard their differences and work together with technology to sustain Earth. Culture is diverse & deep. Equality, diversity, co-operation & environmentalism represent the new way of life in <pwa>solarpunk</pwa> futures. Browse the web for the <pwa>solarpunk</pwa> term to discover more about the look, feel and message this new movement represents.
