'Powerful' the film asks, Who has the power? The quest for “energy security” embedded in global trade relations is even a justification for conflict. Our conventional energy system drives our transportation, powers our communications, seeming to provide a lifeline to industry and commerce. Its depleting our resources, polluting our air and affecting global climate change. Green economy educator David Chernushenko candidly examines the alternatives, the critical resistance & spin of the big energy lobby, whilst presenting what a sustainable energy-powered future may actually look like..
