Journey into sustainability

Professor Scott Tinker from the University of Texas travels the world to find out how we can make our use of energy sustainable. Using his own consumption as a starting point, he sets out with a scientific approach and a positive attitude, interviewing both the advocates and critics of the various sources of energy, while trying to justify his own lifestyle in the process. Tinker is thorough and enthusiastic, analyzing the economy of each source as well as their CO2-omissions and other environmental hazards.
