Decent enough but not much new info if you're already into clean energy research.
13 December 2017 | by b_tightSee all my reviews

You probably won't learn much if you are already following clean energy trends. Although I didn't know about micro-hydro plants which is pretty cool. Also, Redford's constant cluelessness get's old after a while. His heart is in the right place but he's like 50+ and should act like he knows something if he want's to send a message.

I'd recommend it for teachers with students between 12-15 but not really to anybody that seriously follows this industry.
