The Carbon Rush (2019)

4.0 ·
1

From indigenous rain forest dwellers having their way of life completely threatened, to dozens of Campesinos assassinated, to the livelihood of waste pickers at landfills taken away, THE CARBON RUSH travels across four continents and brings us up close to projects working through the United Nations, Kyoto Protocol designed Clean Development Mechanism. This groundbreaking documentary feature asks the fundamental questions “What happens when we manipulate markets to solve the climate crisis? Who stands to gain and who stands to suffer?”


Des habitants de la forêt pluviale, dont le mode de vie traditionnel est gravement menacé aux paysans assassinés par douzaines, en passant par la brusque disparition des moyens de subsistance des recycleurs de déchets, « La ruée vers le carbone » traverse quatre continents et nous présente divers projets mis en place via le mécanisme de développement propre (une initiative des Nations unies liée au Protocole de Kyoto). Cet audacieux documentaire pose les questions essentielles : « Que se passe-t-il lorsqu’on fait appel aux marchés pour régler la crise climatique? Qui en tire profit, et qui en subit les contrecoups?

Films For Action is a digital library for people who want to change the world.

 

Our mission is to provide citizens with the knowledge and perspectives essential to creating a more beautiful, just, sustainable, and democratic society.

Films For Action was founded in 2006 by a few friends in Lawrence, Kansas, after realizing how essential a healthy media is to a healthy democracy.

Today, with the help of our members (who can add content directly to our site), we've curated over 5,000 of the best documentaries, short films, and videos that can be watched for free online plus several dozen pay-per-view documentaries, sorted into 34 subjects related to changing the world.

And, since there's still so much to learn about that isn't featured in a film, we've also curated over 4,000 articles.
