Friday Video: POWERING THE PLANET Earth: The Operators’ Manual

POWERING THE PLANET Earth: The Operators’ Manual (program 2)

 Brazil has sugar cane… Denmark has wind… Morocco has sunshine… China has plans…

And America has… politics and indecision.

 Using compelling stories that showcase the many ways in which great nations and smaller communities are finding sustainable solutions that provide for people and protect the Earth, POWERING THE PLANET asks an urgent question: is America is making the right decisions for its own energy future?

 This second program in the EARTH: THE OPERATORS’ MANUAL series is an eye-opening look at some of the world’s most important energy decisions, and a provocative assessment of what it takes to build a sustainable energy infrastructure.

 The planet offers lots of choices: what we do with them is up to us. To learn more, visit www.earththeoperatorsmanual.com.

 Hosted by geologist Richard Alley of Penn State University, author of the companion book, Earth: The Operators’ Manual, published by W. W. NORTON & COMPANY.
