Power SurgeStreaming Video - 2013
Can emerging technology defeat global warming? The United States has invested tens of billions of dollars in clean energy projects as our leaders try to save our crumbling economy and our poisoned planet in a single bold, green stroke. Are we finally on the brink of a green-energy power surge, or is it all a case of too little, too late? From solar panel factories in China, to a carbon capture and storage facility in the Sahara desert, to massive wind and solar installations in the United States, NOVA travels the globe to reveal the surprising technologies that just might turn back the clock on climate change. Focusing on the latest and greatest innovations, including everything from artificial trees to green reboots of familiar technologies like coal and nuclear energy, NOVA asks: "Can our technology, which helped create this problem, now solve it?"
