Global Energy and Carbon: Tracking Our Footprint - Meet The Families

More information is given about each household’s lifestyle and daily schedules.

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 State, India and Cameroon to examine how energy is used in three economies: industrialized, emerging, and developing. The documentary explores options to manage carbon emissions from energy use while providing adequate access to energy for the world’s growing populations.
