Synopsis

Note: This edition of "Journey to Planet Earth" does not include Education or Public Performance Rights. Home/Individual Student use only.

As fossil fuel prices rise, oil insecurity deepens, and concerns about climate change cast a shadow over the future of coal, 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.

Plan B explores both the nature of this transition to a new energy economy and its effect on our daily lives. Based on the book by environmental visionary Lester Brown, Plan B's message is clear and unflinching - either confront the realities of climate change or suffer the consequences of lost civilizations and failed states.

Appearing with Lester Brown are Nobel Laureate Paul Krugman, Pulitzer Prize winner Tom Friedman, former Governor and Secretary of the Interior Bruce Babbitt, along with other scholars and scientists.

"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
