Mobilizing to Save Civilization: The New Energy Economy - Lester Brown

"The challenge is to save civilization itself," says environmentalist Lester Brown in this documentary based on his "Plan B" book.  This video delivers a clear and unflinching message – either confront the realities of climate change or suffer the consequences of lost civilizations and failed political states.

Brown, together with other notable scholars and scientists, including Nobel Laureate Paul Krugman, Pulitzer Prize winner and New York Times columnist Thomas Friedman, and former Governor and Secretary of the Interior Bruce Babbitt, provide a glimpse into a new and emerging economy based upon renewable resources as well as strategies to avoid the growing threat of global warming.  This is an enlightening film that takes you around the world to reveal the effect of global warming on different countries, the world wide impact, and countries' reaction and plans to confront it.
