Years of Living Dangerously: A Race Against Time

David Gelber, Joel Bach and more/2016/50 min/Energy

FILM DESCRIPTION: The energy market has an estimated global value of $6 trillion—a number that could be greatly affected by an increase in renewable sources, especially solar. In his first television project since retiring as host of “The Late Show,” David Letterman travels to India for the first time to find out what the world’s soon-to-be most populous country is going to do to expand its inadequate energy grid. “Saturday Night Live” cast member Cecily Strong travels to Florida and Nevada to investigate what’s blocking the growth of solar energy in the U.S.—and she gets the real story from industry insiders and a retired commissioner now willing to tell their stories.
