Part of the "PBS Vote 2008" election coverage, award-winning Frontline producer and correspondent Martin Smith's sobering investigation of corporate and government response to Earth's looming environmental catastrophe offers an urgent warning for the future of our planet. According to Nobel Peace Prize winner and Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change president Dr. Rajendra Pachauri, the citizens of the world must work quickly and diligently to reduce the carbon emissions responsible for wrecking havoc on our climate if we hope to make our world a safe place for future generations. But are the governments and corporations of the world up to this formidable challenge? In search of an answer to that pressing question, Smith travels to twelve countries on four continents and speaks with the people directly responsible for making the decisions and policies that will directly impact the future of our planet. The answers he gets while confronting CEOs more concerned with the opinions of their shareholders than the world their grandchildren will live in may frighten you.
