No Carbon Nation

Feature documentary (2014-15)
94 minutes

A primer on the key technical, regulatory and financial pathways toward ending CO2 pollution from global energy production. Policy wonks will enjoy its thoroughness, but viewers unfamiliar with energy infrastructure might doze off before they hear James Hansen say “the fundamental difficulty is that fossil fuels are presently the cheapest energy. But they’re cheapest only because they don’t pay for their cost to society.”

The first part of what Hansen says is no longer true. In many parts of the world, it is now cheaper to harness solar and wind energy for electricity generation than it is to mine, transport and burn coal or natural gas.
