Years of Living Dangerously: Uprising

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

FILM DESCRIPTION: America Ferrera journeys to Waukegan, Illinois, where tension has developed over an active coal plant between those who suffer from health effects and those who depend on it for their livelihood.

Sigourney Weaver explores China’s explosive economic growth and the impact it is having on the environment, not only locally but on a massive global scale. Traveling to Hong Kong, she sets out to see whether the world’s biggest polluter is fulfilling promises to reduce emissions — even as its populations and industry continue to grow. She sits down with the former U.S. ambassador to China, and other leading experts on U.S. and China relations.

 Uprising is Episode 8 from Season 2 of Years of Living Dangerously.
