Episode 12: Plan B

Episode 12: Plan B: Mobilizing to Save Civilization

Featuring environmental visionary Lester Brown, “Plan B” delivers a clear and unflinching message – either confront the realities of climate change or suffer the consequences of lost civilizations and failed political states.

As prices rise, oil insecurity deepens, and concerns about carbon emissions cast a shadow over the future of fossil fuels, a new energy economy is emerging. Wind, solar, and geothermal energy are replacing oil, coal, and natural gas at a pace and on a scale previously unimagined. For the first time since the Industrial Revolution, we have begun investing in energy sources that can last forever.

Provides a glimpse into a new and emerging economy based upon renewable resources as well as strategies to avoid the growing threat of climate change.

“Lester Brown tells us how to build a more just world and save the planet…in a practical, straightforward way. We should all heed his advice.”
— President Bill Clinton
