Glaciers are melting. Sea levels are rising. Hurricanes, floods, and droughts are sweeping the globe. Captain “Climate Change” Carbon is threatening to destroy the earth. Is there no one who can stop him? Enter 14-year-old Gabi, who, after her family home is destroyed by Hurricane Sandy, transforms into Green Hero. Armed with clean energy and sustainable choices, can Green Hero stop Captain Carbon before it’s too late? Can the actions of one girl in one city really make a difference in the fight against climate change? Created by the writers of Austin the Unstoppable, this fun, upbeat musical comedy investigates the positive choices each of us can make to assure a sustainable future.
