Global Energy and Carbon

Tracking Our Footprint

Flick the switch, push the button, turn the key–and energy flows through the industrialized world. What will our world be like when everyone on the planet has this level of access to energy? Global Energy and Carbon: Tracking Our Footprint follows families in the United States, India, and Cameroon to examine how energy is used in three economies–industrialized, emerging, and developing–to document a “typical” family’s impact on the environment and workable strategies they can employ to reduce their carbon footprints. This documentary explores options to manage carbon emissions from energy use while providing adequate access to energy for the world’s growing populations.
