Disappointing
14 December 2017 | by normalman-30397See all my reviews

I was hoping for an informative doc on clean energy tech both positive and negative. Unfortunately, this is a thinly thought out effort by a guy who really wants to believe in green power so he credulously buys whatever he's told - such as the nonsense that Apple's NC data facility is running on 100% renewable power (it's not, it uses the same power everyone else around here uses - Apple just buys credits to make this claim).
