Redford explores the advantages and disadvantages of many forms of energy, from coal, to solar, to wind, to water, and nuclear, and talks to experts about the technology, politics, and economic viability of the various options. The film also tells the story of how politics nearly derailed solar in one of our sunniest states — Nevada — and how a pastor turned state senator helped save it.
