Chasing Carbon Zero

Season 50, Episode 6 of 18

The US recently set an ambitious climate goal: to achieve net zero carbon emissions by 2050. But is that feasible? What exactly would it take? Chasing Carbon Zero takes a hard look at the problem and identifies the most likely real-world technologies that could be up to the task. From expanding renewable energy options and designing more energy-efficient buildings, to revolutionizing the transportation sector, to "negative emissions" technologies, the film casts a hopeful but skeptical eye. A wave of innovation is beginning to take hold, but can these solutions be scaled and made available and affordable across the country? The problem is vast, and time is running out. Find out why there is still hope that we can achieve Chasing Carbon Zero in time to avoid the worst impacts of climate change.
