Clearly, renewable energy is the only sustainable choice of energy for our future. The question is, can we switch to these technologies fast enough to curb the climate crisis?
Together, we believe we can!
As we speak, communities around the globe are taking action to address this crisis by implementing new forms of distributive, renewable energy that will take the place of fossil fuels. But will this technology be enough, and what role will the U.S. play in this transition? This film seeks to answer these questions by exploring the rise of the Third Industrial Revolution, the global techno-economic movement that might just hold the key to our future survival.
Our project will explore the work of American economist Jeremy Rifkin, adviser to the European Union and the leading visionary behind the Third Industrial Revolution. We will show viewers how this plan can simultaneously address the climate crisis and diverse economic and social issues. We will also examine how the implementation of these technologies and the emergence of an eco-empathic civilization mark a distinct new stage in human evolution.
But we cannot do this alone, together we must act now!
Be a part of the solution by joining us in making this film and help amplify the momentum of the revolution. Together, we will highlight progressive businesses, governments and people who are leading this energy movement, and shine light on the reality that there is a way out of the climate crisis.
We are making this film for everyone. Without you there is no film. Our bottom line cost for production is $19,680. Every cent will be used for film production, editing, computer graphics and traveling to different locations in the U.S. to meet with leading technology innovators, power companies and policy makers. If we raise $40,000, or more, we will be able to make a film that can have a truly global impact. With greater resources we'll be able to dedicate more towards education and distribution. Even if you see us reach our goal, keep spreading the word and make a pledge, knowing that any additional support is going towards making this project the best it can possibly be.

Risks and Challenges
The RISK: If we don't successfully peak our carbon emissions by 2017 we are risking losing 50% of the world's food supply by 2080. Based on the scientific evidence, we must switch to renewable energy and we must do it now! We cannot gamble with our children's future anymore. The risk is too high and the damage is irreversible.
The CHALLENGE: To successfully convince governments and businesses around the world to create policies and invest in renewable energy technology and infrastructure immediately.
Working together we can make this vision a reality!
