Many of the vital technologies of our modern lives are major contributors to the six different types of greenhouse gasses, also known as carbon emissions. From the transportation to industry and energy generation, carbon emissions are a growing concern. Some researchers suggest we need a 90% reduction of carbon emissions by the year 2050 in order to stave off a major and lasting climate change. Join us as we visit innovators in the areas of LEDs, new solar energy technologies, insulation materials, alternative fuels for heating and transport, wind power, and laws concerning the carbon emissions at the local, nation and international levels.
