Informative and Hopeful
21 December 2017 | by See all my reviews

I learned a lot about how clean, renewable energy actually works and why it is becoming so inexpensive. Redford may have known the answers to the questions he was asking, but those are the questions I would have asked and he got the answers for me. I also agree with one of the other reviewers, that the film or a version of it, should be made available to kids for educational purposes. IT"S HAPPENING. Every country in the world is on board, except US, and it's going to be these kid's world.
