The Carbon Rush

What happens when we manipulate markets to solve the climate crisis? Who stands to gain and who stands to suffer? Director Amy Miller travels across four continents to show us indigenous rain forest dwellers whose way of life is completely threatened, dozens of assassinated Campesinos, and waste pickers whose livelihood at landfills is taken away. She brings us up close to projects funded by carbon-offset credits that claim to be sustainable and to offer innovative solutions to climate change, but create far more and worse problems than they solve big-business polluters get dirtier and bigger and richer.
