Summary "Using compelling stories that showcase the many ways in which great nations and smaller communities are finding sustainable solutions that provide for people and protect the Earth, Power the Planet asks an urgent question: Is America making the right decisions for its own energy future? This second program in the Earth: the operators' manual series is an eye-opening look at some of the world's most important energy decisions, and a provocative assessment of what it takes to build a sustainable energy infrastructure. The planet offers lots of choices: what we do with them is up to us."--Container
